  • Her relatives encouraged me; competitors piqued me; she allured me: a marriage was achieved almost before I knew where I was.
  • But as matters really stood, to watch Miss Ingram’s efforts at fascinating Mr. Rochester, to witness their repeated failure — herself unconscious that they did fail; vainly fancying that each shaft launched hit the mark, and infatuatedly pluming herself on success, when her pride and self-complacency repelled further and further what she wished to allure — to witness THIS, was to be at once under ceaseless excitation and ruthless restraint.

  • There are no more uses of "allure" in the book.
