Hopeless romantics and desperate wannabes ... whether you just can't get enough or want to know how to do it with epic proportions, this is the book you've been waiting for!

A collection of the most passionate and romantic love scenes ever written (or at least until 1942 when this book was published), conveniently presented in a single volume and ready to be pulled from your purse anytime you want to capture a few 'Calgon, take me away' moments.

Perfect summer reading whether your favorite spot is in a lounge chair at the beach, relaxing in a backyard hammock, gently rocking on a porch swing, or drifting along in the cockpit of your boat ... There's nothing like a good book, so you can only imagine what the best parts of 43 books are like! Priceless!

Excerpted from 43 classic novels of primarily the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries by famous writers, these historic love scenes hail from a variety of cultures and countries around the world yet convey the universal yearning for deep, romantic love, whether innocent, forbidden or otherwise.

The famed novelists range from Dostoievsky and Cervantes to Dumas, Hawthorne, and the Brontë sisters. The well-loved, classic stories include "Pride & Prejudice," "Lorna Doone," "Les Miserable," "Madame Bovary," "Sons and Lovers," "Of Human Bondage" and so many more.

Each excerpt is presented along with a short biography on the author and a brief overview of the story to give the love scene context.

A thoughtful gift for the newly engaged or married...

Frequently asked questions about AngelGrace

The best way to determine which belt size you wear is to measure a current belt that fits you well. The next best way to determine your correct size is to run a tape measure through your belt loops while wearing the pants. Detailed instructions are spelled out in all belt listings.
No problem. This happens sometimes. You are welcome to return the belt in exchange for a new one or return for a refund. I've found it's easier on my bookkeeping and quicker for you to get the correct size if you place a separate order for the correct size. When you return the unwanted belt to me (contact me for my address; USPS First Class is fine), I will issue a refund (less original shipping costs) when it's received back in its original, unused, undamaged condition and with the belt keeper/loop still attached as I can't re-sell it this little piece is lost.
