“Adieu, my ladies. If you ever venture to Scotland…leave the husbands at home. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“You better not tup our sister! Or you’ll be having us to deal with, Braden MacAllister! (Duncan)
Could I please just deal with one threat of death at a time? (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Ever the charmer, eh, Braden? (Sin)
Hold your tongue, Sin. (Braden)
I would, but with my luck, one of your giant Scottish bugs would land on it. Besides, it makes my hand wet and pruney when I do that. (Sin)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Well, well. What have we here? (Thief #1)
Looks like we got some little pigeons just right for a plucking. (Thief #2)
Well, well. What have we here? (Sin)
Looks like a pack of fools wanting to die. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“And are you suspicious of me? (Maggie)
Woman, I’m suspicious of anyone who acts altruistically. I’ve only known a handful of people in my entire life who were actually kind. The vast majority of people only help others when they know it’ll benefit them in some manner. (Sin)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Especially given the severity of some of her curses. God help him if any of them ever came true. Why, he’d be a two-headed, three-toed, monkey-nosed, blind son of a cesspit-licking lackey if she had her way. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Do I need to go for a stroll? (Sin)
Nay. I’m merely trying to kill your brother. (Maggie)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“You arrogant, apish, underhonest lewdster! (Maggie)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Your brother is a beslubbering, churlish, hell-governed princox, and I hope one day he gets the beating he deserves for it. (Maggie)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Nay! Can it be Braden’s made it a whole hour without a woman? Quick, Lochlan, send for a healer afore he collapses from the stress of celibacy. (Ewan)
Now, that’s no joking matter. It’s not good for a man to go too long without a woman. His juices back up and before you know it, he turns into a soured, ill-tempered beastie…So that’s what happened to you! Come. We’d best find you a woman quickly before you get any worse. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“It seems the women have decided I must put a stop to the feud against the MacDouglas or else they’ll serve us no more. (Lochlan)
In any capacity. (Ewan)
By Satan’s hairy toes, Sin, it appears I’ve died and gone to hell. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Clumsy? Why, I’ve had more women than you, you whelp. Well. Maybe not more than you, but certainly more than Ewan. (Lochlan)
That’s not saying much. My left boot has had more women than Ewan. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Is that a threat? You’re but one man against all of us. (Fergus)
Aye. I’m one man with a full garrison of troops sitting rather nicely entrenched on my English lands. Trained knights and soldiers ready to march at my command. You touch one hair on Lochlan’s head and I can promise you, I’ll see every one of you in your grave. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“I say burn that witch. (Enos)
Aye. Burn the witch. Burn the witch. (Clan)
Burn the witch and her ugly shoes too! (Enos)
(Braden frowned at him.)
Well, they are ugly. (Enos)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Leave him be, Sin, or I swear, in the mood I’m in, I’ll tear your head off your shoulders and use it for a footstool. (Braden)”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“God help him if any of them ever came true. Why, he'd be a two-headed, three-toed, monkey-nosed, blind son of a cesspit-licking lackey is she had her way.”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“His eyes defiant and smoldering, Braden held his sword aimed at the MacDouglas’s throat. “To get to her, you’ll have to come through me.”

“You want to die for her?” Robby asked.

“Aye,” Braden said without hesitation. He glanced at her and for the first time she saw the love in his eyes. “I will die for her.”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Braden arched his brow as Maggie walked away. She was truly something else. What she was, he couldn't say in polite company, but never before had he met a woman quite like her.”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“Without a word or glance, Sin walked past her and climbed up to the stables loft. 'What's he doing?' she asked Braden as she rejoined him. 'I'm leaving the two of you alone,' Sin's muffled voice answered from above. Braden tilted his head up to stare at the wooden beams above their heads. 'Like it would matter, since we know you can hear everything we say?' 'Aye, well, I'm a pervert, not a voyeur.'"

-Maggie, Sin, & Braden”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander


“A man protects those who need it most. Those who cannot protect themselves."

-Sin”
― Kinley MacGregor, quote from Claiming the Highlander

Popular quotes

“The essential and similar feature of both procedures and rituals is that they are stereotyped. Once the first transaction has been initiated, the whole series is predictable and follows a predetermined course to a foreordained conclusion unless special conditions arise.”
― Eric Berne, quote from Games People Play


“How are his poems?"
"He's not as good as he thinks he is, but then most of us feel that way.”
― Charles Bukowski, quote from Hollywood


“Fine, but if you get yourself killed I reserve the right to flush your ashes down the toilet while I sing the theme from Titanic.”
― Quinn Loftis, quote from Elfin


“You know who you are you just have to believe it.”
― Elizabeth Scott, quote from Stealing Heaven


“Faith, thought Eszter . . . is not a matter of believing something, but believing that somehow things could be different; in the same way, music was not the articulation of some better part of ourselves, or a reference to some notion of a better world, but a disguising of the fact of our irredeemable selves and the sorry state of the world, but no, not merely a disguising but a complete, twisted denial of such facts: it was a cure that did not work, a barbiturate that functioned as an opiate.”
― László Krasznahorkai, quote from The Melancholy of Resistance

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
