Barbara Cartland’s Lobster Amourette

Barbara Cartland:

‘Tomatoes are known as ‘love apples’, or pomme d’amour in French. The Greeks and Romans adopted fish as a symbol of fertility and physical love. ‘

‘She let her fingers touch the tiny pocket hidden in the skirt of her dress where she had placed the two little pebbles that were now her lucky charms. …felt fire run through her body at the look in his eyes.’

‘Their steps matched each other’s perfectly/waltzed their whole lives.’

“The power of love is so strong that it is the greatest emotion felt by human beings and
transcends all other feelings. And I believe that love lasts for ever and for however
many lives it is our karma to live.” BC
