Angélique de Peyrac in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 15 - 16) No sooner did dawn break than the girl would rush off, with flying hair, and hardly more clothes on than a peasantwench: a shirt, a bodice and a faded petticoat. Her little feet, as daintly as those of a princess, were hard as horn, for she would send hershoes flying into the first shrub she came across so as to skip more freely. If she was called, she would hardly turn her round, sun-tanned face, in which stone two eyes of a greenish blue, the colour of the plant that grows in the marshes and which bears her name. (...) She was already so pretty that the peasants regarded her as the living incarnation of the fairies who lived in the big dolmen on the witches' field.
(p. 46) Her burnished gold hair was bobbing on her shoulders. (...) She who had always been rather frail, now looked all of her twelve years; her shoulders had broadened, her breasts strained gently against the worn serge of her dress. Under the golden tan of her cheeks her full-bloodedness shone with a rosy glow, and her moist lips were half opened in a laugh which revealed her small perfect teeth.
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique, the Marquise of the Angels. London: Pan Major, 1961.

(p. 140 - 141) "You see! Not only are you one of the most beautiful women at Court, but you have a way of setting yourself off. From the moment you open your mouth you can have anyone eating out of your hand because you are charming and amusing. And besides, you have that one thing that so many other beauties would die for but never get." "What is that?" "A soul," said Madame Scarron resignedly.
(p. 155) She was indeed a very beautiful woman with something serious about her, and attitudes that were at once spontaneous and calculated. (...) She seemed so healthy and fresh, and her children were so handsome.
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique and the King. London: Pan Books, 1968.

(p. 330) I love the blending of your beauty and your character... The perfect way your body mirrors your soul. You are a fantastically noble creature... You have all the tricks of a woman, her cruelty, her sharp nails, and yet you have not lost the tenderness of a mother... You are as changeable as the weather, yet as fixed as the sun... (...) You are like every other woman, but you resemble no one of them... I love to think of the life that lies beyond you, the promises of your old age... (...) I love the fact that you crave the love of Mulai Ismail, that you are as shameless as Jezebel, and that you dared to kill him as Judith did Holofernes. You are the treasure-chest into which the Creator of us all poured every jewel of womanhood...
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique and the Sultan. London: Pan Books, 1963.

(p. 201) For the first time for many months she became aware of herself as he fixed his eyes upon her. She felt the vigour of her body, her stamina increased by the open-air life and by her constant rides on horseback. Her figure was less slim, her shoulders were stronger, but she had recovered her Poitou complexion, pink and golden, and the rings under her eyes, the product of many a tear shed, lent a tuch of pathos to her expression and made her eyes seem all the brighter.
(p. 283) Her lips were glistening with a smooth sheen like mother-of-pearl.
(p. 288 - 289) They had stripped her, they had uncovered those legs, so delicate and curving that they looked as if they must belong to a statue or a goddness.
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique in Revolt. London: Pan Books, 1966.

Angélique de Peyrac in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 316) He thought: 'The most beautiful eyes in the world! 35,000 piasters were not too much to pay for eyes like that. A king succumbed to them … blodthirsty Sultan bowed before their power. He laid one hand across her brow as if to escape their appeal, then gently stroked her hair. Time had whitened her hair only to make a finer setting for her green eyes. The Olympian goddnesses themselves would have envied her this shimmering, pearly ornament of pale gold. He felt a secret delight in the fact that even when she was dishevelled and distraught she still remained beautiful, as she had been during the storm or when he had made love to her. For her beauty was not the sort that depends on coquettish skill and artifice. Simplicity suited her new-found splendour, which had grown partly from her serenity and partly from her astonishing love of live. (...) ...she would always be lovely, as lovely as a spring of fresh water over which he could learn to quench his thist.
(p. 372) Angélique embodied all that was feminine. He had never found a woman to compare with her, and he had never grown tried of her.
(p. 428) In the circle of her black hood Angélique's face, with the green eyes and pale golden hair bathed in the strnge light reflected from the leaves, seemed mysteriously lovely. She had always belonged to the forest, and the forest was taking her to itself once more.
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique in Love. London: Pan Books, 1969.

(p. 89) My goodness, she was lovely! So lovely she took your breath away.
(p. 126 - 127) Cradled in the hollow of their coarse mattress of moss and dried grasses, her body took on a new fullness. As she lay beside him in the abandon of her superb nakedness, the curves of her back appeared more opulent, her breasts heavier, and her beauty had a statuesque quality that her liveliness of manner prevented one from noticing during the day. In her sleep, she had the full, fruitful curves of an ancient goddess. Her smooth face kept its secrets.
(p. 545) ...and seeing her treading so lightly before him, as if the branches moved aside to let her pass, he tought that she looked like a fairly...
GOLON, Sergeanne. The Countess Angélique. Ontario: Pan Books, 1968.

(p. 163) And the circle of flabbergasted men looked at her as if she were some apparition, with her dazzling hair all blown about by the wind and her pale green eyes that seemed to mirror the sea.
(p. 169) The features of a woman who did not seek to hide them, full of pride and self-knowledge, with that imperial seal that maturity set upon them; there was a greater purity of line, greater harmony in the bone structure, the line of the nose, the brows, the curve of the mouth, a greater softness, shadow and mystery in her sea-blue gaze, and a perfection in the fulfilment of her whole being that radiated from her and that had been responsible for the enslavement of Pont-Briand to the point of madness.
(p. 202) Her eyes are like pools of water bubbling from the rock, and her hair is like a sunbeam.
(p. 203) ... the body of a goddess... with her hair spread out over her shoulders... In the sunlight I had thought her hair was golden but there I saw it was the colour of moonlight... A sheet of silvery gold... like a fairy... There was something about that woman which is like no one else, something marvellous...
