ROMANCING THE DUKE

by Tessa Dare

 

 

romancing the duke

Astonishing. In the morning, when she sat working at that table of correspondence, silhouetted by sunlight…

Her hair truly did look like an octopus.

It was the way she wore it, he thought. Or maybe the way it wore her. It all sat perched atop her head in that big, inky blob. And no matter how strenuously she pinned it, dark, heavy curls worked loose on all sides, like tentacles.

Of course, it was an entrancing, strangely erotic octopus. Ransom worried this might be how fetishes developed.

 

 

 

Why is this quote fantastic?

I love this short musing of Ransom, our Duke, about our heroine’s hair. Of course, there are certain contexts in the book that are not apparent in this quote. It’s funny and endearing as it is. But once you get into the context and learn more about this characters, you’ll enjoy a reading of this even more.

 

Book Summary:

In the first in Tessa Dare’s captivating Castles Ever After series, a mysterious fortress is the setting for an unlikely love . . .

As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities.

And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one.

Ugly duckling turned swan?
Abducted by handsome highwayman?
Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?

No, no, and… Heh.

Now Izzy’s given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who’s never even been kissed?

This one.

  1. I loved this book and there were so many wonderful quotes. I’ve just reviewed The Last Wicked Scoundrel by Lorraine Heath and this is one of my favourite quotes:

    “She lightened his days, eased his burdens, brought joy to his nights.”
