"He was here for the black-haired beauty with the green eyes who haunted his dreams and plagued his days."
"Flowers, poetry, jewelry… none of that was going to impress her.
But going toe to toe with her uncle and cousin to insist she be included? That she be able to decide for herself how involved she was going to be?
She wanted to drag Captain Browne up to her room and ravish him."
“I am agreeing because it is sensible, not because you spanked me.”
“I do not care why you do so, only that you do.”
“I’m not letting you spank me because I think I deserve it, I’m letting you spank me because I like it!”
"“My cousin, marry? When hell freezes over. She’s determined to be an old maid rather than giving another man dominion over her.” Elijah shook his head, bemused, and took another sip of his drink. Thankfully he was not looking at Anthony when he made his pronouncement.

Golden Angel is a USA Today best-selling author and self-described bibliophile with a "kinky" bent who loves to write stories for the characters in her head. If she didn't get them out, she's pretty sure she'd go just a little crazy.
She is happily married, old enough to know better but still too young to care, and a big fan of happily-ever-afters, strong heroes and heroines, and sizzling chemistry.
When she's not writing, she can often be found on the couch reading, in front of her sewing machine making a new cosplay, hanging out with her friends, or wandering the Maryland Renaissance Fair.
