Favorite Five

I know it has been awhile since I last did one of these posts.  Hopefully I will be a bit more regular this year!  Since I have been reading Georgette Heyer lately, this will be a post of quotes form her books.

Suddenly the silence was shattered.  The Most Noble the Marquis of Rotherham had succumbed to uncontrollable laughter.

"Well you might not have kissed me, but I had every intention of kissing you, so it's just as well he didn't announce me," said Mr Calverleigh.  "Do you always kiss gentlemen who walk in unannounced?  I'll take good care none is allowed to do so when we are married!"
                                                                                    The Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer

"Oh, no!  Frederica and Jessamy knew it wasn't true, of course.  In fact, Frederica said, afterwards, that she utterly forbade me to plague you to take me.  But I am not plaguing you: I am just asking you, sir!  She says you don't wish to see a balloon ascension, but I think it would be a treat for you!"
                                                                                    Frederica by Georgette Heyer

The Marquis had been leaning one hand on the back of Jessamy's chair, but he transferred it to Jessamy's shoulder.  Obedient to it's pressure, Jessamy remained silent.

Then it was that Mr Beaumaris, looking across the room at Arabella, all flushed cheeks and heaving bosom, astonished the company, and himself as well.  "Yes," he said. "I will."

The ones from Frederica make a lot more sense if you have read the book.


  1. It's funny that I've never read a Georgette Heyer book. Though I do know of her popularity. :D My favorite of the quotes was from The Black Sheep! And also the "balloon ascension" in Frederica.

    1. Oh READ THEM!!!!!! They are a favorite in this house!!

    2. Lol! I'll have to read them then. :D
