Too much delicious cake

“We don’t get many opportunities to be honorable.”

“And that bothers you.”

“I won’t bore you with complaints about being too rich or too privileged. It’s like saying, ‘They’ve given me far too much delicious cake.’”

— from Forever Your Earl (The Wicked Quills of London #1) by Eva Leigh

The Wicked Quills of London is a series featuring a group of women writers. In the first book (featured above), I seriously enjoyed the heroine’s observations on class, privilege, and gender roles. (Plus the banter with the earl was pretty great too!)
