Takes Your Breath Away #1

Introducing my new and 'hopefully" monthly post: Takes Your Breathe Away.

If you have been following me for awhile, you know I love to use quotes in my reviews, which gave me an idea.  Why don't I write a post spotlighting other great quotes, these will be one from books I have read or those I find on my fellow bloggers site (I will send kudo's your way). I would also like to use ones that mean something to you, so if you would like me to use a quote, just 
send me the quote that "takes your breathe away", the book, the author, etc..

Looking back at some of the books I read in 2011, I can't help but mention Julia Quinn's, The Bridgerton series. I just began reading historical romance this year when I participated in a reading challenge. At first, I was apprehensive, but I have to say, I fell in love with the family and their lives. The Bridgerton series consists of eight siblings finding their purpose and the love of their lives.

I found myself laughing and crying... Julia Quinn has the ability to write the words of "love". You know what I mean, the ones you want your sweetheart or your husband to say to you. In each one of her books she creates "the moment" when the characters express their love for one another, and each time, she nails it. They are all written in a way that touches you deep within your heart. Who wouldn't want these said to them?

Just wanted to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to Nat over at Reading Romance, she introduced me to this wonderful author. If you haven't had a chance to stop by her site, don't miss out on any of the FUN GIVEAWAYS !!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes, they all Take My Breath Away...

The Duke and I (Simon to Daphne)

"I want to be in your heart. I want—" His entire body shuddered when their skin touched. "I want to be in your soul." "I love you," he whispered. "In all my life, it's been only you." "'Now' doesn't even compare to tomorrow. And tomorrow couldn't possibly compete with the next day. As perfect as I feel this very moment, tomorrow is going to be even better. Ah, Daff," he murmured, moving his lips to hers, "every day I'm going to love you more. I promise you that. Every day ..."

The Viscount Who Loved Me  (Anthony and Kate)

When Anthony realized he loved her... "It means that love isn't about being afraid that it will be snatched away. Love's about finding the one person who makes your heart complete, who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be.. It's about looking in the eyes of your wife and knowing, all the way to your bones, that she's simply the best person you've ever known.... Because with you gone...there was nothing left for me to live for".

An Offer From A Gentleman (Benedict to Sophie)

"I have always loved you. I think I loved you before I knew you. You are the reason I exist, the very reason I was born."

Romancing Mr. Bridgerton (Colin to Penelope)    This is my favorite:

“I love you with my past and I love you for my future. I love you for the children we’ll have and for the years we’ll have together. I love you for every one of my smiles, and even more, for every one of your smiles”

To Sir Philip with Love…. (Phillip to Eloise)

“I need you, I need you like I need breath. I need you like food, like water. …I think I’ve waited my entire life for you.”
