Romance Writers Weekly – Potent Quotables

Love Write Chat

Welcome to the romance Writers Weekly blog hop, where every week a great group of romance writers answer questions and accept challenges. Diverse in what we write, we are unified in the quest to bring you, the romance reader, a very happy ever after.

RWW also has a website with its own blog, a newsletter, and can be found on Facebook, and Twitter (@RWWBlog).


If you’ve wondered in from Carrie Elks’ wonderful blog or are starting your tour with me, welcome to a day filled with fun and games.


Today’ s challenge comes from Jeanne McDonald – What is one of your favorite quotes from your book(s). Explain the reason why it’s your favorite and its significance to the story and characters.


In chapter 5 of Son of Thunder, my heroine is assessing my hero Jord Thorson. As I was writing this scene I threw in a line I was pretty sure I would be changing. I mean how many times in a romance has the hero been described as looking like a god, or a Greek god, or something similar?

But I’m writing quickly and need to fill something in so I wrote: He looked like a god. I’m in Meghan’s head and I don’t know which of us thought it first, but there was this duh moment. He is one!!! And the line (somewhat paraphrased) has become my catch phrase for the book.


The actual line from the book, after edits and all, is: He looked like a god . . . well, he was one, so . . . yeah.

It pretty much captures the essence of the book, so . . . yeah.

And what is Jo Richardson’s favorite quote from one of her books? Find out as the Romance Writers Weekly blog continues at:
