Quote-tastic(#30): Lessons From a Scarlet Lady by Emma Wildes

This meme is about sharing your favorite quotes and the books they come from!

It is Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup.

“Lady Rothburg says there are no ladies or gentlemen in bed.”

“Is that so?” Moving to lean one hip on the surface next to him, he crossed his arms over his chest and stared at his wayward wife, recalling the outrageously pleasurable interludes he’d recently enjoyed as she followed the advice in the notorious book. “I take it, since you sought to change matters, I was the one you found boring.”

Silence. No denial. Now that was flattering.

Color spread up her graceful throat to stain her cheeks. Still standing on the other side of the desk, she admitted, “Not boring, for I enjoy it every time you touch me, but something was missing. What happened between us in bed was pleasurable, but not exciting.” 

He felt like a fool. She was perfectly right. “You wish excitement, I take it?”

“Only with you, Colton, for I love you. But, yes, I suppose I find it more exciting when you lose some of that formidable control and show how much you desire me.” Her gaze was utterly sincere, and he couldn’t help but feel humbled.

Ashamed of himself in many ways, but humbled. Still, how was he to know she had a copy of that outrageous book?


“I am not,” she announced as if she truly meant it, “currently speaking to you.”
