Popular Quotes

“After Mrs. Culpepper, Max probably knew more about her than any other person in her life. They were the only two people who knew of her dream to buy a country cottage. And he was the only one to know of her silly wish for a hound.

Which, now that she thought on it, was a sad state of affairs, indeed. She had no better claim to friendship outside of Mrs. Culpepper than a man with whom she’d spent such a nominal amount of time? And who had been read to toss her bodily from Caldwell Manor only yesterday?

Surely she had more depth of character than what could be mined in the course of an evening. She did not begin and end with her dreams of a thousand pounds, a hound, and a home. She was vastly more complex, far more interesting than that. She had to be. The alternative was too depressing to entertain. Almost as depressing as never having known a friend who’d not been paid to keep her company. But that, at least, could be changed.”

 “He was quiet a moment, studying her. “I don’t have a mistress.”

“Oh. Well.” What did she say to that? Good? Damned right, you don’t?”

“The drawing Anna was thinking of wasn’t particularly wicked, not so far as drawings in Anover House went. It was a colored sketch of a young man and woman embracing in a sun-dappled garden.

Her embarrassment was not in the nudity portrayed … well, not all the embarrassment … it was in the sentiment. The couple were entwined in each other’s arms, lost in each other’s gaze, seemingly oblivious to the world around them.

For Anna, the picture was a sweet bit of ink and imagination that epitomized every silly romantic notion she’d ever had about falling in love. And it was that silly romanticism that embarrassed her. It was always a little uncomfortable to admit wanting something you knew you couldn’t have.”

 “Let me enlighten you. We are a pack of liars, thieves, and wastrels, the lot of
us…There is not an honestly gained parcel of land in the whole earldom. Every acre, every village was stolen through one reprehensible manner or another. Deceit, blackmail, extortion, all of
it. It’s disgusting.”

Alex waited a moment to make sure Whit was quite through before asking, “How long ago?”

“Did we steal the land, do you mean?”
Alex nodded.

“Up until about a hundred years ago, then the wastrels took over.”

 “Do you mean to stay on at Caldwell?”

“For a time,” he replied.

It took all her courage and determination to meet his eyes. “Then we’ve time to know each other.”

She’d issued exactly two invitations for friendship in her life, both of them to Max. God willing, this one would fare better than the last.

His smile was slow and perfect. “I do look forward to it.”

 “I wasn’t about to admit to the lady I was hoping to impress that I wished to be a man of business. I wasn’t that drunk.”

Anna was certain that, for as long as she lived, she would never understand how it was the inebriated sorted out their priorities. Drunk enough to offer marriage, but still sufficiently sober to keep his secret? It was baffling.”
― Alissa Johnson, Practically Wicked

“He’d become so accustomed to having her there, right there next to him, that he found he could no longer go the day without needing to see her. Even the space of a few hours made him feel restless and dissatisfied.”
― Alissa Johnson, Nearly a Lady

 “Much of how a person defined himself was through his interactions with the world. When that world was very small, it probably felt as if the opportunities for definition were very limited.”
― Alissa Johnson, Practically Wicked

“Thank you all for such a warm and generous welcome. As we all are perfectly aware, my first act as mistress of the house shall be to bed your master. Do excuse.”
― Alissa Johnson

― Alissa Johnson

One Final Bonus – Alissa Johnson Quote 

“Choose the one you want,” he told her.

She giggled as the puppy contorted itself in an effort to lick her hand without rolling off its back. “Oh, you are silly, aren’t you? Just the silliest little …” Her hand stilled on the puppy. Her eyes shot to his. “What did you just say?”

“Choose which pup you’d like as your own.”

“My own?”

“You wanted a hound,” he reminded her.

“Yes, I …” She looked at the dogs, then back at him. “Are you giving me a dog?”

“For the sake of propriety, we are to say it is a gift from your brother, but …”

“But it’s from you. You’re giving me a dog,” she said, and there was a notable catch in her voice.

“Well … More or less.” For reasons that baffled him, he suddenly felt equal parts embarrassed and pleased. “It was my idea.” He cleared his throat, fought off the urge to shift his feet.”
