Quote-tastic Monday: The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie

This is the fourth book in the Chance Sisters series and as far as I know, it is the last.  However, there is definitely room for at least one more book.

Anyway, I have to say that Flynn is my favorite hero from the series.  I loved them all, but he is such a scamp, he outshines them.  Oddly enough my quote does not involve him and Daisy, but Flynn and Lady Beatrice.  Lady Beatrice is an elderly woman who has taken in and claimed the Chance sisters.  She has the most personality of all of the characters in my opinion.  Anyway, she forced Flynn to attend a dancing lesson with the sisters because she knows he does not come from a privileged background and assumes he needs all the help he can get.  She is proven wrong (something that rarely happens) at a ball the very next night.

“Why did you not tell me you knew how to dance?”

Flynn smiled.  “I never tell a lady what she doesn’t wish to hear.”

She snorted again.  “That little habit — if it’s true — is going to get you into a lot of trouble then.”  Her beady old eyes twinkled up at him.  “I look forward to it.”

“So do I, ma’am, so do I.”

Didn’t I tell you he was a scamp?Summer Bride

Quote-tastic Monday: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie

Although I have read other books since last week’s Quotastic, this week’s quote is from the same series.  Her books are not memorable because of the quotes, but every now and then one just jumps out at me and I think “I have got to use that one.”  With no further ado,

Jane has rescued a dog of dubious breeding from a pack of young men who were torturing it.  Zachary cannot believe she means to keep it.  He is thinking to himself,

In his experience, ladies of quality kept overbred bundles of dainty fluff, not — he looked at the dog again — whatever this was.  There was a Staffordshire or bulldog somewhere in its ancestry, he’d wager.  Along with a dozen other breeds.  And possibly a warthog.  Whatever, it was not a dog for a lady.
