Special thanks to Goodreads for doing an awesome job of cataloguing some of my favorite quotes.


  1. +JMJ+

    Lisa Kleypas is the only Romance author whom I think I will love forever, and these quotes remind me why.

    Your #1 quote is a variation of something she wrote in (if I remember correctly) Devil in Winter. It was something about two people fitting so well because of their broken edges. I remember loving it so much the first time I read it. =)

    1. Enbrethiliel, You're right, but I liked the later version a little bit better. The first time I read it I sighed. Here's the original one that I believe you were talking about:

      “Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together.”
      ― Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Winter
