Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#1. His nostrils flared at that as he sat up. "What has possessed you?"
"Anger," she growled out. "Great doses of anger, my lord. And all of it is for you."
-Christian, Adara #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#2. A few minutes later, Phantom returned with a gown. "'Tis not fancy, but it will suffice."
They left Adara alone to dress. Corryn ran off to wait with the men downstairs while Phantom and Christian waited in the hallway. "If you want, I will go to the jail and kill them before we leave," Phantom offered.
It was tempting, but not realistic. Not even Phantom was that talented. "You can't do that."
Phantom laughed evilly. "Trust me, I could get into their cell and have their throats slit and be out again before even they knew it." There were times when Phantom almost scared him. He didn't know what disturbed him more, the fact that Phantom offered or the fact that he seemed so willing to spill their blood.
"Adara says to leave them be."
Phantom shook his head as if he couldn't believe what Christian had said. "She's an incredible lady, isn't she?"
Christian nodded. "Her strength amazes me. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#3. Henry's face went red in anger as he blustered at her audacity. It wasn't often anyone got the better of him, and Sin knew no woman had ever flummoxed him before. Not even Eleanor.
"You are willing to declare war for him ?" Henry asked indignantly.
She didn't hesitate with her response. "I am. Are you?"
Sin closed his eyes as he heard the most precious words of his life. She who believed in nothing but peace was willing to fight for him. He could die happily knowing that.
Still, he couldn't let her do this. Henry would not rest until he buried her and her clan. A king's reputation was all he had, and if Henry lost face ...
"Callie," Sin said, waiting until her gaze met his. "Thank you, but you can't do this. You can't start a war over me. I'm not worth the cost."
"You are worth everything to me. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#4. I happen to like being sad over nothing at all. I find it suits me. (Ewan)
A smile would suit you better. My mother always says that a smile is dressing for the face. (Nora)
And I always say the face, much like the body, is best left naked. (Ewan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#5. Arthur's motto was that might should never make right. Right should make right. The duty of knights and men is to fight for those who can't fight for themselves.
-Phantom #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#6. Heard from whom? (Lochlan)
From me, you worthless lickspittle. So tell me what miracle dragged the three of you from your holes and got your lazy hides all the way here. And a day early, no less. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#7. For every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven: A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance.
-Christian's thoughts #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#8. My mother always said that you should share your troubles. If you let them out, then they are less likely to burden you, whereas if you keep them inside they fester your blood and taint your soul. (Emily) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#9. Why? (Lorelei)
Because I ... (Jack)
You? (Lorelei)
I ... (Jack)
For an eloquent man, Captain Rhys, you seem to be stymied for an answer. (Lorelei)
Lorelei, I don't want any other man to ever touch you. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#14. Emily sighed and looked to Simon. "Your brother is a hard man." Draven choked on his wine. She frowned. "Milord, are you all right?" she asked, pounding her hand on his back. "Fine," Draven said, then shrugged off her touch. "Your choice of words just caught me off guard." Once more Simon burst into laughter. "What?" she asked. Simon shook his head. "I'll leave it to my brother to explain to you just how hard a man he is." "Simon," he warned. "Don't growl at me when you instigated it."
-Emily, Draven & Simon #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#15. Varian, please. I didn't mean what I said.'
'Of course you didn't,' he said snidely. 'No one ever does. People always speak without thought. But it's amazing how much damage thoughtless words can wreak, isn't it? #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#16. The queen of the sky told him that in death there is no satisfaction. Only pain will find you. So he asked her when the pain would lessen. The queen told him never. The pain is what shows us how much we loved them. If you truly love someone, then the pain of their loss will always be in your heart. (Nora) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#17. Oh, that's effective," Sin said sarcastically. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#18. Where is Sin's plaid? (Lochlan)
Plaid cloth is for people of true Scots blood, Lochlan. They are not for half-blooded Sassenachs. (Aisleen)
(He had found Sin later that day, alone in their room. Sin had been sitting in the middle of the floor with his arm cut open while he let blood trail from the wound into a bowl.)
What are you doing? (Lochlan)
I'm trying to get rid of the English blood in me, but it doesn't look any different than yours. How can I make it go away when I can't find the difference? (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Shayla Black
#19. Kinley stepped up behind Law, peering out from behind his back. "Are you sorry you kidnapped me?"
He had to be honest with her. "No. If I hadn't, you wouldn't be here. I'd be a lot sorrier about that. I think you would, too."
She pursed her lips. "Are you sorry that your dog raped mine?"
He wasn't about to take that. "No, your dog led mine into sin. He has a thing for bows. She used it against him."
He caught the faintest hint of a smile from her. "I'll admit, she's a flirty thing. So if you're not apologizing for kidnapping me or very likely turning my dog into a single mother, what are you sorry about?"
So many things. "For being rude to you. #Quote by Shayla Black
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#20. Tis the will of Our Savior that we should find you a spouse. (Henry)
'Tis the will of Lucifer that you should torment me until the day he can take over. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#21. Beware the man who beguiles you, Lori-Angel. Those are the ones who won't commit to you. Oh, they'll show you wonders, to be sure, and they'll spin your head with their pleasurable ways. But in the end, they always leave you and your broken heart far behind. Believe me, 'tis better to have the simple hound than to follow the fox. Though the fox is fairer to behold, the hound knows where his home is and dutifully he stays, while the handsome fox is ever off to find new game. (Anne Bonny) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#22. Merewyn was a little more rational. "Perhaps we should whisper amongst ourselves and make them wonder what we speak of?"
Blaise wagged his eyebrows at her before he pulled her into his arms. "Works well for me. Put your arms around my neck, and I'll breathe in your ear."
Varian put the blade of his sword between them. "You can whisper from there."
Blaise appeared appalled. "What are you? An old maid?"
"I promised her my protection."
The mandrake shook his head. "You're gay, aren't you?" Varian raised the blade to rest against Blaise's Adam's apple. He carefully pressed it close. Not so much that it drew blood, but enough to let him know that he wasn't amused. "Or not."
Varian used the blade to push him away from Merewyn. His gaze met hers, and he felt the heat of his desire for her all the way through his body. At the moment, he wished he were gay. Then she wouldn't tempt him so. "Or not. Definitely or not. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#23. Halt! Halt, I say! (Roger)
Oh, that's effective. Halt or I shall say halt again. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#24. I'll go get you something for the pain. (Lorelei)
An executioner and his ax would help. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#25. The bishop was aghast. "You would threaten me?"
Christian didn't hesitate with his answer."For her life, aye."
"You would jeopardize your soul for her? She is a heretic and a witch."
"She is a woman. My woman."
His words only succeeded in angering the bishop more. "I will have you excommunicated for this."
Christian pulled the black monk's robe from over his head and balled it up. "Then excommunicate me. If I am in the wrong for protecting an innocent woman, then God can judge me as He will. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#26. Nora cocked her head as she studied it. It was an interesting piece. Rather large as it lay nestled in the short, dark curls. It seemed oddly harmless lying there, and she had a sudden urge to reach out and touch it. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#27. One day your prince will come. Mine took a wrong turn, got lost, and is too stubborn to ask for directions. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#28. I am merely biding my time. (Stryder)
For what? (Rowena)
For the moment when I am out of this cell and am able to wreak havoc on the one who put me here. I'm going to pull out his innards through his nostrils and dance around his entrails. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#29. You know, Drake, I seem to recall this impertinent young pup who once told me that problems shared are problems solved. (Jake)
And I seem to recall a surly pirate telling me to mind my own business or I'd find myself gutted. (Morgan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#30. Halt!"
Sin jerked his head to see Roger of Warrington in the crowd. The knight was staring straight at the Scotswoman. She met Roger's gaze over the heads of those surrounding her, then grabbed her brother's hand and started running through the crowd in the opposite direction.
"Halt, I say!" Roger shouted louder.
"Oh, that's effective," Sin said sarcastically. "Halt or I shall say halt again."
-Roger, Callie & Jamie, & Sin #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#31. You're right, Simon. Thank you for coming. (Sin)
(Simon threw himself against the stone wall, his face a mask of shock and dismay.)
Callie, quick, take cover, love. The castle is doomed. Sin said thank you to me. The end of the earth is upon us. (He crossed himself.) Hail Mary full of grace. (Simon) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#32. A tall, well-muscled blond man drew alongside Christian. He inclined his head to them. "Abbot," he said to Christian in greeting.
Christian seemed pleased to see him. "Falcon. It's been a long time."
"Aye. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to greet you yester eve when you arrived."
Christian offered him a lopsided grin. "'Tis well understood. I heard about your escapade with the butcher's daughter and your near miss with her father's cleaver."
Falcon laughed. "Lies all. 'Twas the tanner's daughter and her father's ax."
Christian joined his laughter. "One day, my friend, you will meet the one father who can run faster than you."
"'Tis why God gave us horses." He winked at Christian, then tilted his head so that he could see Adara. "'Tis a pleasure to meet you, Queen Adara. I am Lord Quentin of Adelsbury and my sword is ever at your disposal."
Christian gave him a meaningful stare. "And your sword had best stay sheathed, Falcon, until you're on the battlefield."
"Your warning is well taken into consideration, Abbot, along with your sword skill and horsemanship. Have no fear of me. Your wife is ever safe from my designs. But no woman is safe from my charm."
Adara couldn't help teasing the man who seemed of remarkable good spirit and cheer. "However some women might find themselves immune from it, my Lord Falcon."
"What, ho?" he said with a laugh. "Congratulations, Christian. You have found a woman as intelligent as she is #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#33. There are times when I swear that boy is as mature as an old man, and other times when he hasn't got the sense of a three-year-old babe. (Mavis)
Good Lord, Mavis. He is a grown man after all! (Alice) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#34. Is something wrong? (Callie)
How could anything be wrong while I have you in my arms? (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#35. I will tell no one what I know of the two of you. But I would ask one small price for my silence. (Damien)
And that is? (Rowena)
If you still believe in God, then say a prayer for me. He turned a deaf ear to my pleas long ago. (Damien) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#36. Then why are women by nature, by God's own design, the gentler sex? Women faint at the slightest scare. (Morgan)
Slight scare, Captain? I assure you, sir, that I have seen women suffer for days to bring a child into this world. And I have yet to see a woman faint during the labor of it. I beg you, show me a man who would willingly bear that much pain for that many hours, and not cry out for his mommy! In fact, you want to know why women have a higher tolerance for pain, Captain Drake? I'll tell you why, it's so that we women can put up with you men! (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#37. She reached up to place her fingertips to his lips as she stared up at him with a warm, tender expression. "I wish you had come home to me so that I could have helped you."
He pulled the cloth away from her face and stared at her for a hard second. "Had I known what was waiting for me, my lady, I would have."
-Christian and Adara #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#38. A vine from one tree shot out, tripping Blaise. He and Merewyn rolled to the ground. Varian stood between them and the trees, which shot blast after blast at him. He deflected them, but even so the heat from the fire was scorching.
'Go, Blaise,' he said. 'Get Merewyn out of here.'
Blaise nodded before he crawled to Merewyn under the barrage.
'Hold!'
The blast stopped as the three of them froze into place.
Again the woman appeared in the fire to stare at them maliciously. 'What is it you do?'
'I'm crawling,' Blaise answered. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#39. I can hire someone to guard me. (Rowena)
Never trust a hired man. If they'll serve you for one price, they'll gladly serve another for a higher one. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#40. Well, they certainly didn't teach you any manners. (Lorelei)
I'm a pirate. What, would you have me spout poetry? (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#41. Out of fifty, five of them emerged as our leaders: the Wraith, who moved with stealth and secrecy while he ran interference with our guards; the Scot, who sacrificed himself for others so that they would not be punished; the Widowmaker, who watched over us and planned our escape; the Sorcerer, who was able to distract and steal whatever we needed; and the Abbot, whose scholarly ways and unending faith reminded us that we were still human even though we lived as animals in a filthy cage.
We named the five of them the Quinfortis, a latin term that means the strength of five. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#42. I can almost believe the rumors that say you've sold your soul to the devil when you look like that. (Sean)
You can more than believe it, MacKaid. Harm her and I'll introduce you to the devil myself. (Ewan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#43. And what can a simple girl do? (Henry)
I was told, by my father, of St. Mary of Aragon who single-handedly brought down an entire Saracen army with nothing more than her faith in God. He also spoke of an ancient Celtic queen named Boudicca who brought Rome to her knees and burned London to the ground. He oft said that a woman was far more deadly as an enemy than a man, because men lead with their heads and women with their hearts. You can argue and win against another's head, but never against her heart. (Callie) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#44. Please don't send me away, Serenity. I came back because I need you. I want us ... you, me, and Nicholas ... to have a life together. To build a house ... and ... and farm like Jake, or maybe buy a business. I no longer care where I live. I just want to be with you, Serenity. With you and with Nicholas forever. Please say yes. (Morgan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#45. That's it," Sin said, taunting the animal. He wrapped the kirtle around the swatter to make a banner of sorts that would entice the beast. "Run after the idiot who has no sword."
He waved the banner before the bull, which now stood still as it watched the motion Sin made. It stamped twice, put it's head down and charged.
Sin spun about and ran for the woods as fast as he could.
-Sin & the bull #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#46. Serenity barely heard the last of his words as he made his way out of the cabin. Instead, her attention was on the quick, clean strokes of Morgan's writing. It amazed her that a pirate would be literate. Especially one sold so young to the sea.
She broke the seal.
I feel like a weed in the midst of Winter. 'Tis the sunshine of your smile that will bring back the Spring of my days. We arrive in four days. I hope you will grace me again with your presence.
Yours,
Morgan
She traced the flowing letters with the tip of her finger and couldn't suppress a smile. A poetic pirate no less. Who would have thought? #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#47. (Emily frowned, then turned about in her saddle to scan the inner bailey.)
Milady? What do you seek? (Simon)
A marker announcing this as the gate to Hades. (Emily) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#48. Why are you telling me this? (Stryder)
Because too many of us let our minds deafen our hearts. (Zenobia) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#49. The wife correct " Lorelei prompted. "She makes sure her husband is treated with the proper regard and she is the one who sees after his care just like you would do a treasured pup."
Annabeth frowned. "I suppose that's true."
"Thank you " Lorelei said. "Now if you wish to train a man to listen to you you never shout you whisper. They take extra special care to listen to a quiet tone while they automatically shut out loud ones. And just like you would a dog when he comes at your bidding you reward him. That way he'll always come instead of ignoring you or putting
you off. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#50. He ground his teeth together, the torture of it almost more than he could bear.
The urge to pull her to him was overwhelming, but to do that would cost him dearly, for no doubt she would run out the door, damning him with every step.
This was Lorelei, the artist, and she didn't see him as a man. Right now, he was about as human as the ridiculous fruit she'd painted in the past. And if he played along with her wants, perhaps she'd let him show her his ... banana. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#51. It just happened."
Stryder narrowed his eyes. "Nay, Simon. Foul weather just happens. Disaster just happens." He glared meaningfully. "/Death/ just happens. But people do not get betrothed without design. You will get me out of this, or so help me I will have your head and your bullocks. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#52. Trust me, Stryder, there is no greater pain than to let the one you love leave your side. Knowing they are out there, alone, and always wondering if they are healthy and happy. (Zenobia) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#53. Downfall? How ominous you make it sound. There is no downfall being plotted. Merely a question being asked. (Callie)
Aye, and empires have been splintered apart over the mere utterance of a single word. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#54. She would follow him, and if he made a move to hurt her, she promised herself he would long regret it. At least she would try to make him long regret it. Of course, the worst thing she could probably manage would be to bleed on him. Fine revenge, that. (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#55. They travel through the night on the wings of heavenly stallions bringing hope and new faith to those left behind. Even though they are free, they never forget their past and spend their lives trying to bring peace to others. (Brotherhood Chanson) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#56. Do you intend to come over here and mount your horse, or are you wanting to stare at my backside for the rest of the day? (Ewan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#57. Nay! Can it be Braden's made it a whole hour without a woman? Quick, Lochlan, send for a healer afore he collapses from the stress of celibacy. (Ewan)
Now, that's no joking matter. It's not good for a man to go too long without a woman. His juices back up and before you know it, he turns into a soured, ill-tempered beastie…So that's what happened to you! Come. We'd best find you a woman quickly before you get any worse. (Braden) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#58. You have a wise prince, my queen," Lutian said from beside them. "I would give him my fool's scepter, except that I no longer have one, since I left it at home so that no one would know I was a fool." He pulled a piece of lint from his tunic and held it out to Christian. "Take this as a token of my esteem."
She half expected Christian to scoff and mock Lutian, as most people did. Instead, he took the lint, thanked him for it, then put it on his shoulder as if it were some kind of prize.
-Lutian & Christian #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#59. What are we doing?" Simon asked as they followed the cart across the castle's bailey and into London. "We're following yon wagon," Sin answered. "Why?" "Because it is in front of us." "Well, that certainly answers that. 'Twould be difficult to follow the cart if it were behind us."
-Simon & Sin #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#60. Staring at the floor, she didn't even look up as the final contestant entered.
Not until she heard a deep, rich baritone that filled the hall with the most beautiful sound she had ever heard.
Her heart pounding, she looked up to see Stryder holding his mother's lute.
Only it wasn't a love song he sang.
More like a limerick, it was a song about a woman who fancied herself a goose.
And a man who gobbled her up.
Laughter and applause rang out as soon as he strummed the last note.
Breathe, breathe.
It was the only thing Rowena could think. And even that couldn't get her to take a breath as Stryder approached her.
He smoothed her hair and straightened her feathered crown. "Methinks my goose has molted."
Rowena laughed as more tears streaked down her face. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#61. Down in the valley, leaves fall from trees, the branches are bare. All the flowers have faded, their blossoms once so beautiful. The frost attacks many herbs and kills them. I grieve. But if the winter is so cold, there must be new joys. Help me sing a joy of a hundred thousand times greater than the buds of May. I will sing of roses on the red cheeks of my lady. Could I win her favor, this lovely lady would give me such joy I would need no other. (Jack)
What are you saying? (Lorelei)
Noble lady, I ask nothing of you save that you should accept me as your servant. I will serve you as a good lord should serve, whatever the reward may be. Here I am, then, at your orders, sincere and humble, gay and courteous. You are not, after all, a bear or lion, and would not kill me, surely, if I put myself between your hands. I love you, my lady, Lorelei. Marry me and I swear I shall never again do or say anything to harm you and I will slay anyone who does. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#62. Especially given the severity of some of her curses. God help him if any of them ever came true. Why, he'd be a two-headed, three-toed, monkey-nosed, blind son of a cesspit-licking lackey if she had her way. (Braden) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#63. Cyn? Short for Cynric? (Callie)
Nay. S-I-N. As in conceived, born in, and am currently living happily in. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#64. Then I tell you this, as you value your putrid lives, you will leave here and make whatever lies you wish to your master. Never darken Lord Orrick's doorway again. For if you do, there is no corner of hell you can find to hide that I won't come seek you out. And I promise you, your master's wrath is nothing compared to mine. (Draven) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#65. Without a word or glance, Sin walked past her and climbed up to the stables loft. 'What's he doing?' she asked Braden as she rejoined him. 'I'm leaving the two of you alone,' Sin's muffled voice answered from above. Braden tilted his head up to stare at the wooden beams above their heads. 'Like it would matter, since we know you can hear everything we say?' 'Aye, well, I'm a pervert, not a voyeur.'
-Maggie, Sin, & Braden #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#66. I love you, Lochlan," she said, hating the fact that her voice broke as she spoke the words. "I will always love you and you alone. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#67. I'm not moping. (Ewan)
Oh, forgive me. See, where I come from an upside-down smile means you're frowning, and if you're frowning while withdrawn from everyone and everything, it means you're moping. I guess here in your cave, the world is backward and a frown means you're happy. (Nora) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#68. Kill him? (Jake)
Confront him. (Morgan)
Since when do you take the sissy way out? (Jake)
Excuse me? (Morgan)
Face it, Drake, that good English breeding of yours is showing itself. Talking ain't a man's way of doing things. You know that. You got a problem, you cut its heart out and then it's not a problem anymore. (Jake) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#69. I want your heart, Sin. (Callie)
It's battered and useless, but what remains of it is all yours, milady. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#70. Aelfa assures me you eat small children every morn to break your fast. Do you? (Callie)
Nay, I find them to be too harsh on the belly. All that moving around once they're swallowed. Not worth the effort, really. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#71. You worthless excuse for a dung dealer. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#72. Oh, Draven. You're my hero too! If not for you, that mean old boar would have eaten me alive. (Simon)
Get off me, you nimble-pated gelding. (Draven) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#73. Handsome as sin and more dangerous than the devil himself, Braden MacAllister had but one affliction in life. He adored all women. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#74. Better than being slave to a man who has no regard for me other than a broodmare for his children. (Rowena)
True. I should hate to be a broodmare for a man. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#75. What do you mean? (Fatima)
There's so much evil out there to protect him and others from. How can I fight for that and keep him safe simultaneously? (Stryder)
I still do not understand, milord. You are but one man with one sword to fight all the world. This is indeed a good thing. But when you are gone so too is your sword. So it seems to me that while it is important to fight the bad man, it is just as equally important to raise a good one. Raising more than one would be even better. That way when you are gone, you will leave a whole generation behind who will fight for what is right. (Fatima) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#76. You can't save the world, Stryder. (Rowena)
If I save one person, then I have saved their world. Homes are not built of one single slab, but rather they are made of hundreds of stones. If one stone is crushed, then the entire house is compromised, if not ruined. I might not save them all, but I have to save as many as I can. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Shayla Black
#77. Hey!"
To his horror, the canvas started to move and a perfectly manicured hand appeared.
Law rushed across the hall, his feet making not a single sound against the carpet.
"Hafta getta way." Kinley was trying to haul herself out of the laundry cart. One fist came up. "Won't let you. Won't."
Riley peered down at her. How did she make that look so fucking adorable? She was a mess of white tulle, and all he could think about was wrapping himself around her.
"Baby, it's all right." Law reached for her hand, his voice softer than Riley could ever remember hearing it. Law was rough and tumble, but he got so tender around this one bit of blonde fluff. "What the hell. I thought I emptied the fucking syringe in her arm. We need the chloroform, Riley."
Yes, it was their last resort. It wouldn't keep Kinley out for very long, but they had to keep her out long enough to escape this damn hotel.
"Don't want to get married. Want the beach. Happy there." They weren't taking her to the beach, but at least Law seemed to be calming her down. Then she turned those kick-him-in-the-gonads brown eyes his way. "So pretty. Wanna get married? #Quote by Shayla Black

#78. Just don't let yourself get killed before you make your peace, boy. Many's the soul who consigned themselves to hell without the devil having to lift a finger.(Thadeus) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#79. You know," she said, pulling back from his neck. "I've always been wrong about something."
"And that is?"
"I thought there was nothing in the world more seductive than a troubadour singing his observations about his lady love. But I was wrong."
She trailed her fingernail down his arm, raising chills in its wake. "The most incredible seduction is when a knight who is renowned for his strength speaks from his heart. Not as a knave out to woo a woman because he can, but as a man who wants only to give of himself." Her gaze seared him as she stared into his eyes and he saw her innermost sincerity. "I love you, Stryder. I always will."
-Stryder and Rowena #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#80. The leech didn't stay long. Only long enough to check his bandages and proclaim this the most miraculous recovery he'd ever witnessed.
"I'll let the others know," Phantom said.
Adara nodded as she returned to sit on the edge of Christian's bed. He had yet to speak with words. But his loving gaze told her volumes. "Welcome back to the world of the living, Christian."
He swallowed, then coughed.
"Easy," she said, afraid he might tear the stitches in his chest.
"I'm sorry, Adara," he said, his voice raspy and strained. His words baffled her.
"Sorry for what?"
"That I disappointed you."
Her tears started anew. "You are never a disappointment to me, Christian. Never ... unless you die on me. That would make me dreadfully disappointed, and then I should have to kill you for it."
The corners of his lips lifted a tiny bit. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#81. Tell me," he whispered, "why it is you alone hold no fear of me?"
"I can't imagine. Surely I am foolish. Aelfa assures me you eat small children every morn to break your fast. Do you?"
"Nay, I find them to be too harsh on the belly. All that moving around once they're swallowed. Not worth the effort, really."

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#85. Callie tucked her brother into bed, and once he fell asleep, she left her room in search of her husband. She found him outside her door, leaning against the wall with his sword beside him.
"Sin? What are you doing?"
"'Twould appear I am sitting."
"And why are you sitting there?"
"Because it's rather difficult to sleep while standing."
Callie faltered as his meaning became clear. "You are sleeping outside my door? Why?"
"Because if I slept outside of Simon's door, the innkeeper might think I'm strange."
-Callie & Sin #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#87. A woman ever needs know about men is that they are creatures of their codpieces. Appeal to their chausses and you will have complete control of them, for when their male piece is in control, their brain is not. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#88. Sin spied a straw-covered head peeping over the side of the wagon. Once the man disappeared from sight, the woman scrambled from the cart, with the boy one step behind. No one seemed to notice her peculiar activity, or if they did, they ignored it. She took a moment to dust the straw off them, but somehow she missed a piece that hung in the midst of one coppery curl. It bobbed as she moved.
Simon laughed as she took the boy's hand and led him through the crowd. "Why was she hiding?"
"She seeks to escape royal custody."
The mirth faded from Simon's eyes. "Should we notify the guards?"
"Nay, I think we can manage to retake her."
"Then what are we waiting for?"
"I have no idea. I simply like watching her maneuver."
-Simon, Sin, Callie & Jamie #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#89. Varian rubbed the back of his head where his lump was growing significantly. "Not that I particularly want to defend Merrick, but those little rocks did happen to hurt. Thank the gods for armor."
Merewyn gave him a sweet, sympathetic pout. "Poor baby." She reached up to rub his sore spot, but honestly he'd much rather have her rub something else that was bothering him. The touch of her hand made his entire body break out into chills. Not to mention that the smell of her so close played total havoc with his hormones.
He honestly wanted to curl up beside her and start purring like a cat.
More than that, he had a vicious need to nibble her body until he was drunk on her scent. And there was a thought that made him glad he was wearing his armor again since it kept his erection hidden from the ones around him.
Stepping away from her before he actually did purr, he looked at Merrick. "What other nasty surprises do we have in store for us? #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#91. Draven stood below the gate disrobing. Slowly, and piece by piece, he removed his sword, his surcoat, his mail armor, and then his padded aketon until there was nothing left but the wealth of tawny skin gleaming in the sunlight.
Stark naked, he walked toward the gate.

#94. He felt his body stirring again at the memory of what she had been like under him.

He shook his head and pulled her closer to him. "Only when I think of you."

#97. You've no idea what it's like, Captain Drake, to be a woman. To be told all your life that everything you want is foolish and that you're useless except as a broodmare. First it was simple. 'Don't climb that tree, Serenity. Ladies never do such.' Then it was, 'Don't run, it's not ladylike. Don't raise your voice. Don't speak your thoughts. Don't laugh too loudly, don't eat too much, don't cut your hair, don't wear those colors.' My whole life is don't. Now I'm too old to even be a broodmare. (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#99. You have no idea of the things I've seen. I was a pirate–once. I'm not denying that, nor do I make excuses for it. I was young, angry, and desperate. Three things that make a most lethal combination. I wanted blood from the Brits and I wanted blood from my enemy. (Morgan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#102. Kerrigan?" she tried again.
"Aye, Lady Mouse. I am here."
Relieved, she smiled at the sound of his voice in her head. During the day, he was oft silent. But at night ... at night he would speak softly to her and tell her of his travels through time as he eluded those who were after him.
"Where are you today, my lord?"
"I'm in Venice, during a carnival. It's beautiful here. There are minstrels and acrobats all around. Plenty of places to hide from Morgen and her spies."
"You are safe?"
"Aye, Lady Mouse. I am always safe. But I've no wish to talk about me. How are you doing?"
"I miss you."
She swore she could feel his pain as well as her own.
"I miss you as well and I think of you constantly."

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#103. Braden clenched his teeth, but as Sin stepped out of the shadows and into the bright circle of moonlight, he forgot his anger in another wave of laughter. Maggie looked at him with a frown. Braden couldn't speak, all he could do was motion to Sin's legs, which were almost gleaming white beneath his plaid. 'Do you want to die?' Sin asked nonchalantly. 'Nay,' Braden choked. 'But have you seen your legs, man?'

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#122. Callie prayed and prayed, hoping he was all right.
At long last, she heard a cheering roar from the people of the village. Turning around, she saw the group of men coming toward them.
And in their midst…
Nay. It couldn't be.
Callie frowned, then blinked, trying to see if her eyes were deceiving her.
Angus was the first to reach the village. "I'll beat the first one of you who laughs," he said in warning. "No mon who fights like that for our women and children will be mocked. You hear me?"
"We wouldn't dream of it, Angus MacDougal," Peg said.
Choking on her laughter and filled with tremendous relief that he was unhurt, Callie ran to her husband and wrapped her arms around him. Her heart pounded at the feel of his strong arms holding her close. Och, how she loved this wonderful man. She kissed his cheek, then pulled away to look him over one more time and make sure he really was unharmed.
Again, she had to purse her lips to keep from smiling.
In truth, she had no idea how the village refrained from laughing at the sight of her proud husband. He only had one boot on and his breeches were shredded. The kirtle he'd wrapped around the swatter was now wrapped around his body in a poor, ill-fitting state. He was covered in mud and looked like some half-formed fey beastie.
Sin looked at her with humor dancing in his midnight eyes. "Go ahead and laugh, dove. I promise I won't be offended." He draped an arm over her shoulders, drawin #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#126. And are you suspicious of me? (Maggie)
Woman, I'm suspicious of anyone who acts altruistically. I've only known a handful of people in my entire life who were actually kind. The vast majority of people only help others when they know it'll benefit them in some manner. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#127. Looking uncertain, Lutian came forward. Royal protocol aside, Adara hugged him close in relief of seeing him whole and hearty. "Thank the Lord that you are unharmed. I was terrified of what they'd done to you."
"Methinks they unaddled my noggin, my queen. For the first time in years, I seem to be thinking right again."
She smiled at him, then placed a chaste kiss to his cheek. "We both know there was never anything really wrong with your noggin, Lutian," she whispered in his ear.
"Aye, but 'tis more fun to pretend that there is. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#131. How can we continue to have festivities after so many have died? (Rowena)

#132. Simon stepped forward and clapped him on the shoulder. "Nothing better than making a maid happy, is there?"
"Aye, there most assuredly is."
Simon cocked a puzzled brow.
"Skewering my meddlesome brother would definitely be better."
Simon laughed. "Then I'd best go pack so that I won't be directly in your sight for the next few minutes."
"You do that, Simon, and while you're at it, make sure to find your common sense and bring it along as well. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

She stepped into his arms. "Yes, Varian, I do." She brushed the matted hair back from his face. "I don't care what you look like. It's you I love, not your looks. Your humor, your kindness, even that little snuffle snore you make when you sleep."

"Me, irresponsible? You're the one who wants to run away. So go. Leave. Creta. Au revior. Bon voyage. Auf Wiedersehen. Vaarwel. Arrivederci ... "

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#141. I would sooner geld myself. Drunk. With a dull knife." Sin spoke with a slow, deadly emphasis on each word. King Henry II stood a few feet away from him without the protection of a bodyguard or other courtier. They were alone in the throne room, and no doubt any other man would be cowering before his monarch. But Sin had never cowed in his life, and Henry knew better than to expect such behavior from him now.
Henry's face hardened. "I could command it of you."
Sin cocked one arrogant brow and asked, "Then why don't you?"
Henry smiled at that, and the tension left his body as he closed the distance between them. Their friendship had been forged years ago, in the dark of night, and at the end of a blade pressed deep against Henry's throat. Sin had spared the king's life and since that day, Henry had treasured the only man who had never been awed by his power or authority. Sin answered to no man, be he king, pope, sultan or begger.
But then, there was nothing in life that awed Sin. Nothing in life that commanded him, or touched him. He was completely alone. And he preferred it that way.
"I didn't get this throne by being a fool, Sin. Should I command you to it, I know precisely what you'd do. You'd turn your back on me and head straight for yon door." Henry looked sincere. "God's truth, you are the only man alive I never wish to make my enemy. 'Tis why I ask this as a friend."
"Damn you."

Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#142. Let me tell you a little story. There was once a boy who wasn't even old enough to shave. Beaten. Naked. He was sent out into the great desert with only a small dagger for protection. I have killed cobras with my bare hands and I have lived through conditions so horrendous, not even hell itself scares me. If any of you think for one minute that I have any soul left to prevent me from killing you, you're sadly mistaken. If you think for one minute, any of you are capable of killing me, then I say try it. But make sure you've had a good confession beforehand, because I assure you it will be the very last mistake you make in this lifetime. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#143. There will be no insults here," Lachlan said to Ewan, his voice stern. "At least not against Sin. Braden, on the other hand, you may feel free to attack." "Och, now," Braden bristled, "where's your brotherly love?" Lochlan smiled devilishly. "That is my brotherly love. Notice I have yet to taunt you?"

How do you know? (Lorelei)

#148. What did they do to you, to make you withdraw so far into yourself? (Sin doesn't answer.) You've left me again, haven't you? I can always tell. Your eyes turn dull, cold. Very well, I shall leave you in peace. But know this: One day I am going to find the heart you have buried away from the world. (Callie)
And what would you do with it if you found it? (Sin)
I would hold it safe and keep it from the hurt that has shriveled it. (Callie) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Have you ever been around such men? They're mewling. Fussing over their hair, their cloths. They're more woman than man. (Cat) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#155. But I– (Jake)
But nothing, Captain. Heaven forbid you leave the helm for more than a minute. Anything could happen. God could toss down a lightning bolt and set fire to the ship. A sea monster could rise up from the depth of the ocean and swallow us whole. Or, dare I say it? The weight of male egos may be so great that it plops a hole right in the center of deck and we sink from it! (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#156. The last time I told one of your would-be paramours nay on your behalf, she damn near unmanned me. This time I wish protection when I deliver the news. 'Tis not amusing. You think what you do is dangerous? I defy you to be in my boots for one moment when I face the great Ovarian Horde in your stead. (Kit) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#157. I want to be alone. (Sin)
Well, how fine is that? Here it is our wedding day and you wish to spend it alone. Fine, then, call me shoe leather and have done with it. (Callie)
I beg your pardon? Call you what? (Sin)
Shoe leather. You know, the inconsequential matter that you treat upon without thought. (Callie) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#158. Have you always been so large? (Nora)
Aye. I came from my mother's womb at full height. The shock of it almost killed her. (Ewan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#159. I love when you stand close to me. I can feel your breath fall against my neck and it sends chills and fire all over my body. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#160. Whatever did they feed you to make you grow so large? (Nora)
A great deal of breast milk. (Ewan)
You take great delight in shocking people, don't you? (Nora) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#161. (Mavis led Lorelei over to a shaded spot on the deck where a large pile of shirts, pants, and socks waited. From where she stood, it was a daunting task.)
How long have you been working on that? Just since the dawn of time, or eternally? (Lorelei) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#162. Would you have really killed him? (Lorelei)
For touching you, absolutely. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#163. How will we find your friend Ioan?" Adara asked.
Before Christian could respond, a man was thrown through an open doorway and went sprawling before them into the street while raucous laughter, taunts, and insults rang out after him. Two more men quickly joined him in the street. They all lay on the ground, groaning.
"I think we found him," Christian said with a hint of amusement in his voice.
-Adara & Christian #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#164. Are there any who don't heal?"
Christian's throat tightened at her question - that she would be so compassionate, when any other lady of her stature would be demanding the lives of the men who had assaulted her. It was something his mother would have done. "Unfortunately, aye. There are always some who can't adjust. Some kill themselves once they arrive home. A few have gone mad, and some, such as the Scot, live in perpetual torment and seclusion from the world."
She reached up to place her fingertips to his lips as she stared up at him with a warm, tender expression. "I wish you had come home to me so that I could have helped you."
He pulled the cloth away from her face and stared at her for a hard second. "Had I known what was waiting for me, my lady, I would have."

#165. A jovial man can be happy with anyone, but when a sad one laughs, he treasures that one who brings him the sunshine. (Cat) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#166. So now you be facing me for ideas, eh? What makes you think a simple, brainless woman like myself would have any idea on how to accomplish men's work? Why, I feel faint just trying to think any thought at all. (Cat) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#167. Well, then again, she herself could be pretty single-minded when the occasion warranted it. But going over accounts and taxes? Quite honestly, she'd rather be tied to a stake by her hair and drowned in pickle juice. (Emily) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#168. I should be mortified, I know. But Alys is a good friend to me, and though she has her faults, she has a good and generous heart.(Emily)
And is that all that matters to you? (Draven)
Aye. People will always make mistakes, but in the end 'tis their heart that matters most. (Emily) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#169. Pausing in front of her, her mother brushed the hair back from her face and smiled sweetly at her before she kissed her brow. "You've changed much, my little treasure."
A stinging wave of grief consumed her as she heard her mother's blessed voice again. Tears welled in her eyes. "I've missed you, Mama."
-Seren and her mother, in a dream. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#170. But I tell you this, that man is certainly a devil out to ruin some poor woman this night. (Felicity)
Well, if he be the devil, you can chain me to his throne anytime. (Heather) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#171. If you must know, I don't talk about myself because no one ever cared enough to listen. (Jack)
What do you mean? (Lorelei)
Think about it, Lorelei. How many times a day do you ask someone how they're doing? Their world may have just shattered and yet they look up and say, 'Fine, thank you, and you?' No one cares to hear other people's problems. 'Twas a lesson I learned early in life. (Jack) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#172. But tell me truly, milovidnost, had I asked you to elope with me that night, would you not have followed me to the ends of the earth? (Jack)
I wouldn't have followed you to the end of the corridor. (Lorelei) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#173. Would you do me a favor milord? Be a boorish ass again. (Rowena) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#174. When he'd started out, he'd expected to find his brother. What he'd never thought to find was the treasure that slept beside him now.
Would you trade this to have Kieran back?
It was a choice he was grateful he didn't have to make. But in the end, he knew the truth.
Catarina was his life. He would sacrifice anything for her.
Anyone. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#175. Lorelei smiled mischievously then let fall her greatest weapon. The secret is you must treat a man like a dog. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#176. I've had worse. (Draven)
Such as? (Simon)
The day my heart was ripped out of me. I assure you the king's executioner could never equal the pain I felt the day I saw our mother die. (Draven) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

Is worth an army of pistols. (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#179. Marriage. 'Tis an unholy union between two people, and for what purpose? To make them both miserable. (Stryder)
I don't believe is has to be that way. Imagine a marriage where the man and woman respect each other. Where they are partners and allies. (Rowena)
You are sober and speak more foolishness than I do while drunk. (Stryder) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#180. Because there is a time for all things. My people, like you, believe in peace. But sometimes, the only way to have peace is to fight for it. (Zenobia) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#181. The only thing we'll be handing you is your head. (Fraser)
Ooo. Scary. Have you ever thought of making up children's tales? You might actually succeed in frightening a two-year-old. (Sin) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#182. I never thought I'd see the day you retreated from anything, least of all a mere slip of a woman. (Simon)
And never did I think I would find a woman I wanted so badly. Beauty, you're a treacherous lure with a deadly hook, and this fish has no choice except to flee before it gets caught. (Draven) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#183. Where are your clothes?" Callie asked, noting he wore very little underneath his "borrowed" kirtle. Very little except for that warm, tawny flesh she found so delectable.
"The brambles caught him," Angus answered. "That's how we found him. There's shreds of English clothing from hither to yon."
Callie felt weak at the news of how close her husband had come to being seriously injured. "Are you truly unharmed?"
"A bit scratched and bruised, but nothing other than my ego is seriously damaged." Sin grinned playfully. "See now why I always travel with a sword? One never knows when a raging bull is likely to come storming down the street."
-Callie, Angus, & Sin #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#184. Now, why did he have a hard time believing that? ... Because it would be the first time in your life that you ever won an argument with Lord Thick and Knotty Pate. (Morgan) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#186. Those who dare to speak to me directly call me Sin." She nodded. "Cyn? Short for Cynric?"
"Nay," he said, recovering his stoicism as he remembered who and what he was. "S-I-N. As in conceived in, born in, and am currently living happily in."
He felt her hand tremble for the first time. "You like to frighten people, don't you?" she asked.
"Aye."
"Why?"
"Why not?"

Could I please just deal with one threat of death at a time? (Braden) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor

#188. To adventure the likes of which I think neither of us have ever seen. (Morgan)
And to fate. To the very fate that has abandoned us to turmoil. (Serenity) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#189. Is that a threat? You're but one man against all of us. (Fergus)
Aye. I'm one man with a full garrison of troops sitting rather nicely entrenched on my English lands. Trained knights and soldiers ready to march at my command. You touch one hair on Lochlan's head and I can promise you, I'll see every one of you in your grave. (Braden) #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Kinley quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#190. How do you feel?" Phantom asked him as he set his cup aside to pin him with a frown.
Christian leaned his head to the right to stretch one of the sore muscles in his neck. "Fit to ride."
Phantom scoffed. "Interesting, since you look as if you're only fit to fall over."
-Phantom & Christian #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
