Hi Chelsea, I'm so sorry, I've only just seen this!!! :-( :-(

I'm so honoured that you chose Goddess for your year 12 assessment, for an author, that's super special to know. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to answer your questions, I would have loved to.
Again, big apologies - I'm not sure why I never got a Goodreads notification for your question. I hope all went well with the assignment! xxxx Tara(less)

“I already knew what I’d research. I wrote the words ‘Courtly love’ on my notepad in swirly script, then caught Hayden peering at it.
‘Courtly love? Sorry, Aurora, but I think I’ve already got that one in the bag.’
‘I think you’d better think again, because I’ve already claimed it,’ I replied.
‘You just said you’re not the Mills & Boon type and, technically, courtly love could be considered historical romance.’ He grinned. ‘As you don’t want to pollute your mind with any clichéd topics, you should probably leave that one to me.’
‘You, discussing romance? Ha!’
Hayden put on a hurt face. ‘I think I might be alright at it. After all, I’ve been doing a lot of observing lately.’ He gave me a significant look.
‘Observing?’ I repeated, curiosity getting the better of me.
‘Well, you keep accusing me of spying on your dates,’ he said, and shrugged. ‘So, technically, I guess I’m learning about romance firsthand. It seems kind of brutal, judging from the goodnight ritual I saw last night.’
My blood wasn’t boiling, but it was pretty warm. Despite that, I was not going to lose my temper. I was determined that this year Hayden Paris wasn’t going to destroy my composure.”
Tara Eglington

“Lindsay laughed. 'Good luck resetting Tyler's standards. He once gave me a birthday card that read "To my favourite nephew" on the inside.”
Tara Eglington, How to Convince a Boy to Kiss You

“Why did they call it love? It was torment. It was a thousand flaming arrows striking you in the chest.”
