Love Speaks: Romance Quotes

by Enisa Haines

I'm a romantic at heart so of course I love immersing myself in romance novels. I especially love reading gorgeous romantic lines that tug at my heart and thought I'd share fifteen of my Aussie-author favourites:







"Oh, devil take you, you awful man. Of course I'm in love with you."







"I've never known a place to feel like home - until I came to Red Rock Downs. And the reason it felt like home was because you were there. I could live anywhere and it would feel like home - as long as there was you."
















"I love you, Ben. I'd be lying if I didn't tell you there have been days these last three weeks when I didn't want to love you, but the thing is, I have no choice. You're part of my heart."









"I love you. I don't think it's something I can switch off like a tap. It's there and there's nothing, it seems, that I can do about it."








"Please don't leave me alone with memories of how you look because eventually they'd fade and I'll be left with nothing but a soft picture of you and that's not enough. I want you. With me, beside me."
















"I thought I had it all. Until you came into my life and brought the sun, the moon...everything that matters."

















"I love you, Coop. I love you so much I want to weep and yell it from the rooftops all at once and I want to be with you."
















"You amaze me. Inspire me. You make me feel ten feet tall. You're so wise and silly and surprising. I want you by my side when I wake. I need you with me forever."
















"Love. You deserve it, Luisa. That's what I want to give you. If you'll let me try."

















"I fought it for the longest time. I thought it was your rakish wiles I couldn't resist but it was you. Just you."

















"When you come to me, I know everything's going to be all right. Your love pushes me and cushions me and leads me to the light."
















"When I look at you I see my forever home. You have shown me what love can be, and what a relationship should be."


















"I am drunk on you, entirely addicted to your kiss, your laugh, your voice."














"All I want is you. Everything else will be a bonus."

















"Babe. This chance with you...You're it for me. You're my number one and you're staying there."









There you have it. My favourite Australian romance novel love quotes. If you have favourite quotes not listed here, I'd love to know them.

Love to love: the beautiful ways heroes and heroines in romance novels say 'I love you.'

Love to laugh: laughing is good for the soul, after all.

Love to learn: about everything. I admit to being very inquisitive.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS Enisa, I now have to read each and every book you've quoted from. These are *gorgeous* and wonderful and so so SO romantic! I love each and every one of them. No wonder they're on your Keeper List. So swoonworthy. I confess I still love the quote 'You complete me' from the film Jerry McGuire. But every time there is a love quote in a romance novel I confess I sort of melt into a puddle of goo. This is what I love, this is what I want to read and sigh about in romance! I know it's fantasy, but ooh... Bring it on!
