Happy Friday Everyone!
This week’s fun quote comes from an adult romance book but I promise the quote is clean. It is about a man named Richard proposing to Chrissy.
Christiana brought his words to an end by covering his mouth with her hand. When he frowned around her fingers and raised his eyebrows, she signed and said, “Dicky made- I mean George. George made me many promises before we married about the wonderful husband he would be and the glorious life we would have together… and he broke every one. I would rather you not make promises, my lord. Lies are easily spoken. Actions are really more telling.”
“Very well. No promises,” Richard agreed when she let her hand drop away from his mouth.

This is one of those profound moments like with the Entice quote I posted two weeks ago. Actions do speak louder than words. I hope you enjoyed this quote and if you like historical romances I would suggest picking this one up.
