My Favorite Lines

On Tuesday The Rogue You Know was released. I want to share some of my favorite quotes from the book. Comment on your favorites from chapters 6-10 to enter to win a $10 gift card to Amazon.

Chapter Six

“Stay here,” he told her. “I’ll be back in a quarter of an hour.”
“You’re leaving me?” She sounded almost panicked.
“Can’t bear to be without me, can you?”
“I’d be happy never to see you again!” she spat.
He was glad to hear the warmth in her voice. She had fight left in her.
“But you will. I’m for the gin shop. We need supplies.”
Chapter Seven

She looked to the side, where his hand pinned hers to the wall. “You’re so warm.”
“And you’re so incredibly soft.” He freed one finger and stroked it along the inside flesh of her corresponding finger. She shivered. The heat bubbling in her chest dropped to her belly. How could he do that to her with just a touch of one finger on hers?

Chapter Eight

Gideon wanted to crawl into bed beside her.
He wanted to wake her with kisses and slow caresses.
He wanted… He wanted what he knew he could never have.

Chapter Nine

“No!” Dorothea shrieked. She could not bear to think of that consequence as a result of her daughter’s foolish actions. She closed her eyes and attempted to calm herself. “She’s run away.” 

Chapter Ten

He stared at her with a look of complete bewilderment on his face. “You really mean it, don’t you?” He stroked a finger down her cheek, and she tried very hard not to shy away from his touch. “You’re so prim and proper.” His hand dipped lower to the hollow of her throat. “Makes me want to corrupt you.”

The Rogue You Know
She's beyond his reach...
Gideon Harrow has spent his life in London's dark underworld-and he wants out. A thief and a con, he plans one last heist to finally win his freedom. But when everything goes wrong, he finds himself at the tender mercies of one of Society's most untouchable women-Lady Susanna Derring.

...and out of her depth.
Susanna has spent her life in London's glittering ton, under the thumb of a domineering mother-and she wants out. When a wickedly charming rogue lands at her feet, she jumps at the chance to experience life before it's too late. But as she descends into London's underworld, she finds that nothing- not even Gideon-is as it seems. As excitement turns to danger, Susanna must decide what price she's willing to pay...for the love of a reformed thief.

  1. Hi Shana! *waves* Chapter 7 has me sighing and swooning, although chapter 10 is up there too!

  2. As with your author sneak peeks, I love them all. I am going with No. 10 - you leave so many questions that I need to know more - and, yes, I know how to remedy that lol.

  3. Chapter Six. Loved their banter.

  4. Your new book sounds super fun Shana!! Chapter nine intriges me, has her daughter really run away... Or is she just attempting to create some diversion :)

  6. Love, love, love these quotes! Congrats, Shana!

  7. Chapter 8--He wanted what he knew he could never have. Such yearning there, from a man who doesn't think he deserves happiness.

  10. Chapter 8 scene makes me feel bad for him. The Chapter 10 scene makes me want to get to know him. ;-)

  11. Ooooh chapter 10! He's just so wicked and then the question becomes will she let him corrupt her?

    1. I think we all know the answer to that!
