“Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.” –Beth Trissel

My 'Somewhere in Time' Series--Beth Trissel“An irrational jealousy twanged a jarring note in Julia.

And yet, she couldn’t help plunging into this sweet madness.” ~ Julia in my ghostly time travel romance novel, Somewhere My Love

~ Jeremiah from my colonial American historical romance novel, Enemy of the King

The_Bearwalkers_Daughter_Cover3“Lusting after Karin was bad enough. Falling in love with her—out of the question. Out of the question, he repeated to himself, and at odds with his independent nature.” ~ Jack from my historical-paranormal romance novel The Bearwalker’s Daughter

“That someone worthy of her vaulted regard should esteem her in return was joy unbounded. True love seemed more than she dared to hope for from Corwin, but affection…”~Dimity from my historical romance novella A Warrior for Christmas

“In a careful hand he wrote, My dear Madame, uncertain how else to address Dimity. By the light of a thousand sunrises and countless full moon circles I grew into the warrior called Black Hawk. I do not know how to become the man named Corwin Whitfield, nor if I wish to be…” ~Corwin from A Warrior for Christmas

somewhere_my_lass_final1 (1)“The meeting between them was brief, but she’d not forgotten the tingle shimmering through her at the touch of his hand on hers, or the heat of his eyes.  Infinitely much had changed between them since that initial childhood encounter––she but a lass and Niall not yet grown.  Though she’d loved him even then.”

~Mora from Scottish Time Travel Romance novel, Somewhere My Lass

“He strove for control as his lips answered, lightly at first. Then molten waves washed over him and the four elements within him wrestled in tremendous upheaval; the Earth shuddered and groaned, rushing Wind whipped desire through him, Fire enflamed him, and passionate Rain drummed him with rising want like flood waters. Catching her to him, he pressed his mouth over hers far harder than he’d intended.”

~ Shoka from my Native American Historical romance novel, Through the Fire

I’m a Jane Austen Junkie and love most all of the various productions of Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility…and the soundtracks, dancing, costumes, settings…are fabulous.   With rare exceptions, no one does period films quite as well as the British.  My one main exception is Hollywood’s 1992 production of The Last of the Mohicans, a wonderful, mostly accurate, action adventure historical romance.  For a gentler pace, here’s a lovely clip from the latest Emma.  Superbly done.

True Love


‘Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth. Love is like a rose the joy of all the earth, Faith is like a lily lifted high and white, Love is like a lovely rose the world’s delight. Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth, But the rose with all its thorns excels them BOTH.’ ~ Christina Rossetti

“Sweet flowers alone can say what passion fears revealing.” ~ Thomas Moore~

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.” ~ Juliet to Romeo

“O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright.
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop‘s ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.” ~
Romeo speaking of Juliet


“One fairer than my love? The all-seeing sun
Ne’er saw her match since first the world begun.”
~ Romeo

“I know not how to tell thee who I am. My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself, because it’s an enemy to thee.” ~ Romeo

“If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this:

My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand

To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.”
—Romeo in his first words to Juliet while taking her hand

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.” ~ Romeo when he sees Juliet on the balcony

O blessed, blessed night! I am afeard.
Being in night, all this is but a dream,
Too flattering-sweet to be substantial.” ~ ROMEO

“See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!”
—Romeo watching Juliet at her window

“With love’s light wings did I o’er-perch these walls; For stony limits cannot hold love out, And what love can do that dares love attempt.”
~Romeo, when Juliet asks how he managed to get over the high wall to Capulet‘s garden


“O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.” ~Juliet

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other word would smell as sweet.” ~Juliet

“Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” ~ Romeo

“Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.” ~ Juliet

“Give me my Romeo, and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night,
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

~ Juliet as she waits for Romeo to come to her on their wedding night

“Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day:
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear.” Juliet, trying to delay Romeo’s departure after their secret wedding night.

“Night’s candles are burnt out, and jocund day

Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain-tops.”
~Romeo

*That first wedding morning was the last time they saw each other alive.  Sadly, this is a tragedy and you know where we’re going.  Sigh.

“Eyes, look your last!
Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you
The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
A dateless bargain to engrossing death!”
—Romeo, thinking Juliet is dead, bids his farewell to her with a kiss.

*Poor Romeo–in hiding since he murdered Juliet’s cousin who killed his best friend–didn’t get that vital letter apprising him of her pretend death to escape a forced marriage at her parent’s hands and be with him.  And when Juliet wakes up in the creepy family crypt, the cowardly friar ran off and left her to discover Romeo slumped beside her poisoned, which leads to her tragic end at the point of his dagger.

As you can see, I’m a huge Romeo and Juliet fan, and never will there be a more perfect Juliet than Olivia Hussey.   Such a profoundly beautiful and tragic romance.  All the what if’s and if only’s prompted me to revise the ending to that timeless classic in my mind many times.

The 1968 production of Romeo and Juliet is partly  responsible for my having written two light paranormal romances with a reincarnation theme in which the hero and heroine get another chance.  The impact of that film on me was profound.  I was only slightly younger than Juliet’s tender age and badly wanted her and Romeo to be together, to have a second chance. Maybe they did.   Only Shakespeare can say.  Either way, wherever they are and the many couples like them, I hope they’re together in the next world.

As the play concludes, these immortal lines are uttered:

“A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon’d, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
—Prince Escalus

“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.”
~Henry Ward Beecher

“True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.”

~La Rochefoucauld

“Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?” ~ Christopher Marlowe

“Tell me whom you love and I will tell you who you are.” ~ Houssaye

“A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love.”
~Stendhal

“There is no remedy for love but to love more.”
~Thoreau

“Some love lasts a lifetime. True love lasts forever.” ~ Unknown

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.”
~Mother Theresa

“Love is like the wild rose-briar;

Friendship like the holly-tree.

The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms,

But which will bloom most constantly?” ~ Emily Bronte
