What's the difference between the Quaking Heart and the Trembling Heart, you might ask. Not much, I would have to respond. I do believe the trembling heart is less traumatic than a heart that is quaking.
"He made her heart tremble," the romance writer says.
"When she looked at him, her heart trembled," another author writes.
I don't think you would use the word quake in either instance. As a writer, what word would you use?
