“Oh no. Don't smile. You'll kill me. I stop breathing when you smile.”
Tessa Dare, A Lady of Persuasion

“Oh no. Oh God. I couldn't possibly be so stupid."

"Don't limit yourself. You can be anything you wish.”
Tessa Dare, A Week to Be Wicked

“I'm infatuated with you, I cannot deny it. Physically speaking, you're a very attractive man. But I don't like you, the vast majority of the time. So far as I can gather, you behave abominably in public and are only marginally better in private. I only find you remotely tolerable when you're kissing me.”
Tessa Dare, One Dance with a Duke
