With they way they kept baiting each other, intentionally hurting each other emotionally blah-blah-blah, I think they will continue to do so even after the story ends.
No amount of I-love-yous can stop that.
I'm not complaining about above, I'm actually looking forward to reading more verbal sparing scenes (though some makes me go oh Hugh... grow up!). And the making up later. ☺
Some of my fav lines from A Virtuous Lady:
In normal circumstances, he would never have given her a second glance, his Briony. He repeated the name under his breath. Even her name had the power to bewitch him.I need to give myself an english name pronto. Oh wait, does 'Fancy' count?
"Listen to me Miss Briony Langland. The man you give yourself to will be me or you will give yourself to no man."Be still my heart.
His longing for Briony had long since surpassed the mere physical desire to satiate his lust. He could not live without her. He wanted her to share his life. It was as simple as that.Want.
"Good God, Briony, the fact that I have chosen to bind myself to one woman irrevocably should prove something to you!"Oh yes. Good God, Briony.
And the whole part where they got caught in a storm and then Hugh was holding Briony and comforting her? All this thoughts then just wow-ed me. ♥
Don't you just hate the situation where you just finished a book and then have to choose between ∞ books to read next?
