“Not at all!” she stressed decidedly. “Brilliance is quite out of place in the English aristocracy. Fortunately you show no sign of it.” - 😂😂😂
Lady Hester sighed. “It’s a problem, isn’t it? Oh, how I wish this was the eighteenth century, when it was easier to have people assassinated.” Charles choked slightly into his coffee. “Mama please, I beg you not to say things like that. I know you’re only joking –”
“Am I? Well, yes I suppose I am. - lol this was a funny book!

“Not impossible at all. Young girls have strange tastes. Look at the way she used to like you. That should show you.” “Are you ever serious?” Charles demanded scathingly. - Never knew Cartland's sense of humour would extend into her fluffy novels.
“I have written articles on hunting - yes, killing innocent animals for sport. How "noble"...😡
“Is not a woman duty bound to obey her lord and master?” he asked. - horseshit, ridiculous!
“When a girl falls in love with a man, she is in his power. Most men are so unimpressive that it would be a foolhardy girl who would fall into their power if she could avoid it.” 😂
“Yes, Charles can be extremely stupid when it is necessary,” said Madame Rivalier. She could not resist adding, with wifely frankness, “also at other times when it is most inconvenient.” 🎵😂😂😂😂
“I should shoot you down like a dog – it is what you deserve,” he growled. “But it would be too good for you. I am taking you back to England. You will answer to the law for murder.” - dogs are loyal, loving and intelligent. Far more worthy than most people...
