I am reading Married by Morning by Lisa Kleypas and I have laughed out loud  more than once and I am just on page 40.

The hero says...... I can't  have a wife named Blossom.  Every night I would feel as if I were calling in one of the cows.

What lines have made you LOL?

not romance but this made me laught out loud when I read it yesterday:

From Blood Rites by Jim Butcher

"an errand is getting a tank of gas or picking up a carton of milk or something.  It is not getting chased by flying purple pyromaniac gorillas hurling incendiary poo"

i don't have the book handy, but from Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler, the line (after a bit about how full the freezer was of  home-cooked frozen food) was something close to:

It's amazing how much free time you have when you're the town pariah.

I LOL'd recently at a typical scene in a book where the H and h have had their hands tied behind their respective backs and the hero tells the heroine to reach in his front pocket for a knife.  Naturally, she's feeling around and he's squirming and she says "I think I've got it but it feels bigger than I expected, and of course he shouts "That's not a knife!!".  Sometimes I am easily amused.

Not one particular line, but a scene from Catherine Anderson's Phantom Waltz where - after the H and h become intimate and it wasn't the greatest for the h - she goes and asks another woman for advice ... and the ensuing bar fight and whatnot.  It made me LOL and cringe all at the same time.

"Oh my God! Trust me, honey, you do need penises.  We all need penises. Penises are one of God's gifts to women.  Sure, He gave us labor pains.  And periods.  And kept us oppressed for centuries.  But He did give us the penis, and that makes up for a lot."

The main character, post-divorce, is trying to convince herself she doesn't need men or their penises and her friend overhears her.  Had me giggling so hard.

I thought of this thread as soon as I heard this line from Catherine Anderson's Phantom Waltz.  Hero is talkign to his mother about the possibilities of sex life with heroine who is a parapalegic.  His mother is a nurse.  They're talkign about "phantom orgasms"

Hero: "Phamtom orgasm" He thought about it for a moment.  "Sure be hell if it happened in her appendix and she had to go under the knife"

I was re-reading "The Naked Marquis" and thought this exchange was amusing:

God, her eyes had dropped from his face. They were staring at the most obviously male part of him.  Very obvious, very male at the moment.

"Is that what was under the towel this morning?"

"Yes."  Charles bit back a a slightly hysterical laugh.  "I usually carry it with me."

"But how does it fit in your breeches?"

"It collapses for storage."
