Blood Legacy
By Marianne Morea

Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart....Run the risk. If you get hurt, you'll come back. Because the truth is no sense living your life without this--to make the journey and not fall deeply in love--well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.
--William Parris From the movie, Meet Joe Black

Angel Be Good
By Kathy Carmichael

"I can't imagine anything ever coming close to what we have. As far as I'm concerned, we are married. Does it take a slip of paper for two people to be joined together? It has to be our intentions, what's in our hearts, that counts. You belong with me. You're my life."

Almost Perfect
By Julie Ortolon

She wanted the wonderful, caring, compassionate, yet still wounded man who stood before her. To love him and heal him and be healed in his arms.

"You don't have to earn love. It either is or it isn't."

But when he kissed me..." She patted her heart as her eyes turned dreamy. "Oh, when he kissed me...I knew. I just knew he was the man for me, no matter what the future held. I was gonna love that man as long as God let me."

"We may have found happiness elsewhere, but I'm convinced it wouldn't have been near as rich. Some things are just meant. That doesn't mean happiness will fall into your lap. You have to work past the scary stage to earn it, then nurture it daily once you have it."

"Sometimes the things we want take longer than we thought they would. That doesn't mean they won't happen."

"...I need to apologize to you. I broke one of the biggest rules of loving someone. I didn't tell you. I was so wrapped up with my conviction that actions mean more than words that I forgot the words are still important. And powerful."

"I love you absolutely. I have from the moment I first saw you, and I will with the last breath I take. Nothing you do will change that....I love you because you're a part of me and I'm a part of you. I want to spend my life watching you shine."
"I can't make you stay, though. Even if you love me back, that doesn't mean we're meant to be. But if you leave, I will still love you, always. I just want whatever is right for you."

Across Eternity
By Aris Whittier

It was more than just his looks that pulled her in. It went deeper. It was the way he moved, the way he spoke, the way he looked at her. It was the quietness about him that captured her attention. He was modest and giving....There were no pretenses to which he hid behind..

They laughed and learned with eager devotion and humble affection. They were serious when they had to be and absolutely uninhibited the rest of the time. Secrets about each other, which were told to no other, were revealed and shared without fear or hesitation. Their relationship reached new heights that even surprised them. The intensity of the bond they shared grew swiftly and bound them tighter.

They were made for each other. It didn't matter what they did or didn't do. They enjoyed every moment because for them it was all about being together.

Family was supposed to be there to pick you up and carry you through the times that were difficult; they weren't supposed to be what caused the pain.

He had given her everything she ever wanted in such a short time, yet she felt like they had been together forever.

"No one will be able to make me happy but you. So finding someone else would be pointless."

"Loving means no fear. It means forgiving and forgetting. It means understanding and accepting."

"The love we share has no fear. The love I give you is a love that doesn't ask questions. It's an acceptance."

Against the Wind
By Virginia Kelly

He was a protector. A man who believed in right, in justice, in guarding life. That was why he lived it so fully. It mattered to him. People mattered to him.

Across the Creek
By Jeremy Asher

Time was a thief when it came to memories. Not so much the memories as the details that give the memories life, making them more than just a dream.

"I've waited my entire life to find someone like you. Someone I never knew I could love as much as I love you. Someone who fills the hole in my heart that I've been carrying around for as long as I can remember."

"Every time I come over, you look at me in a way that no man has ever looked at me. You touch me in a way that no man has ever touched me." She placed a hand on his chest. "I know there's something here. I just want you to let me in."

"Because of the love we shared, our lives were far better than never having met at all."

"You're sweet, a little shy, cute, and you have a depth that is rare in men. You have this intensity about you. And you're very passionate about the ones you care about."

"You're the same girl," he whispered, "who, whenever I'm with you, feels like the only home I've ever known. And when I'm not with you, I can't wait until the next time we're together."

The Doctor's Devotion
By Cheryl Wyatt

"Stubbornness and love aren't enough to keep a person here if God thinks it's their time to go."

"I'm scared of losing him and scarred with regret that I let time go by without seeing him more."

"You gotta quit living life believing there's nothin' better for you."

"I could get used to this. Everything seems to come to life and become magic and animated when two people start to fall in love."

"If love is what's breathing magic in the air between us, I hope the magic stretches this special moment into the longest, most lingering Forever."

"I don't understand why tragedy comes in relentless waves at times, but I trust in God's goodness in bad times as well as good."

The Bachelor Boss By Judy Baer

When their fingers touched she felt his warmth. Something lurched within her. That simple motion was the type of thing she'd missed most about not having a man in her life -- not the showy public gesture, but the tiny, cozy moments that no one else knew about.

It was as if God was saying to her, "Depend on Me, not a house, not a job, not an object. Only Me."
"Only You, Lord," she murmured aloud. "It's all gone or going, Lord."
