Popular Quotes

“Sometimes having the dream makes you more content than having the reality.”
― Lorraine Heath, In Bed with the Devil

 “He took the hand that wasn’t holding the bou­quet of wildflowers and stared at it, holding it so tightly that she thought he might crack her bones. Then his hold gentled. He slipped a gold ring onto her finger and lifted his gaze to hers.

“I’m not a brave man; I’ll never be a hero, but I love you more than life itself, and I will until the day I die. With you by my side, I’m a better man than I’ve ever been alone. I’m scared to death that I’ll let you down, but I won’t run this time. I’ll stand firm and face the challenge and work hard to see that you never have any regrets. You told me once that you wanted to share a corner of my dream. Without you, Amelia, I have no dream. With you, I have everything I could ever dream of wanting.”

Tears burned her eyes as he glanced back at the preacher. “I’m done.”

-Houston to Amelia as his wedding vow.”
― Lorraine Heath, Texas Destiny

“You don’t care what people think,” he said.

She couldn’t tell from the way he emphasized the words if he was asking a question or making an observation. Still, she felt obliged to answer.
“Of course I care. To a certain extent we all care, but we can’t care to the point that we live in fear of others’ opinion, that we allow them to change who we are. We must be willing to stand up and defend what represents the very core of our being. Otherwise what is the purpose of individuality? We’d be nothing but imitations of each other, and I daresay we’d all be rather boring.”
― Lorraine Heath, In Bed with the Devil

 “When I was a boy, I went to war searching for glory. I didn’t find it.
I came here, thinking I’d find glory if I built a ranching empire or a thriving town.
Instead I discovered that I didn’t even know what glory was, not until you smiled at me for the first time with no fear in your eyes…

A hundred years from now, everything I’ve worked so hard to build will be nothing more than dust blowing in the wind, but if I can spend my life loving you, I’ll die a wealthy man, a contented man.

-Dallas to Dee”
― Lorraine Heath, Texas Glory

 “He wrapped his hand around hers, pressed a kiss to the heart of her palm, and held her gaze. “I’ve got a one-room cabin, a few horses, and a dream that’s so small it won’t even cover your palm. But it sure seems a lot bigger when you’re beside me.”

The moonlight streaming through the window shimmered off the tears trailing along her cheeks. “I’ve always wanted a dream that I could hold in the palm of my hand,” she said quietly.

-Houston and Amelia”
― Lorraine Heath, Texas Destiny

 “Love isn’t found in words, Kate. It’s found in quiet moments, a look, a sigh, a smile, a gladness.” She sighed. “And very often, it’s shown with sacrifice.”
― Lorraine Heath, Just Wicked Enough

“Life is a journey, Frannie darling,” Feagan had once told me. “Choose well those with whom you travel.”
As always, I’ve followed Feagan’s counsel.”
― Lorraine Heath, Surrender to the Devil

 “I would rather be a cripple and have your love for all of a single moment than to live as I am without ever having it.”
― Lorraine Heath, Waking Up With the Duke

“Have you ever wanted something so badly that you would do anything, believe anything in order to acquire it?”

One Final Bonus – Lorraine Heath Quote 

“If he wasn’t angry, he certainly did a good imitation. His voice was clipped and as hard as stone. She wrung her hands together. “I love you. Clay.”
“No, you don’t.”
Meg felt as though he’d just slapped her. “Yes, I do. When you leave this town, I’ll go with you.”
Narrowing his eyes, he studied her. “Will you marry me?”
“Yes.”
“Will you give me children?”
“If I can. Kirk and I were never able to conceive, but if I can have children, I want to have yours.”
“In this town that we move to, wherever it is, will you walk down the street with me?”
“Of course.”
“Holding my hand?”
“Yes.”
“And the hands of my children?”
“Yes.”
He unfolded his arms and took a step toward her. She wanted to fling herself into his embrace, but something hard in his eyes stopped her.
“And what happens, Mrs. Warner, when someone you know rides through town and points at me and calls me a yellow-bellied coward? What will you do then? Will you let go of my hand and take my children to the other side of the street? Will you pretend that you haven’t kissed me, that you haven’t lain with me beneath the stars?” With disgust marring his features, he turned away. “You think I’m a coward. Go home.”
“I don’t think that. I love you.”
He spun around. “You don’t believe in that love, you don’t believe in me.”
“Yes, I do.”
He stalked toward her. She backed into the corner and bent her head to meet his infuriated gaze.
“How strongly do you believe in our love?” he asked, his voice ominously low. “If they threatened to strip off your clothes unless you denied our love, would you deny our love?”
He gave her no chance to respond, but continued on, his voice growing deeper and more ragged, as though he were dredging up events from the past.
“If they wouldn’t let you sleep until you denied our love, would you deny our love so you could lay your head on a pillow?
“If they stabbed a bayonet into your backside every time your eyes drifted closed, would you deny our love so your flesh wouldn’t be pierced?
“If they applied a hot brand to your flesh until you screamed in agony, would you deny our love so they’d take away the iron?
“If they placed you before a firing squad, would you say you didn’t love me so they wouldn’t shoot you?”
He stepped back and plowed his hands through his hair. “You think I’m a coward. You don’t think I have the courage to stand beside you and risk the anger of your father. I’d die before I turned away from anyone or anything I believed in. You won’t even walk by my side.”
He looked the way she imagined soldiers who had lost a battle probably looked: weary, tired of the fight, disillusioned.
“You don’t believe in me,” he said quietly. “How can you believe in our love?”
