The Answers to Declaration of Interest – the first 10

  1. “I shall marry a wench out of a gaming-house with as much pomp and ceremony as I can contrive!” Yes of course, it’s Ravenscar in full self-deprecating, overwheening heavenly alpha-male mode in Faro’s Daughter.

  2. “You don’t feel you could marry me instead? Got no brains, of course and I ain’t a handsome fellow, like Jack, but I love you.” Who could this be but the beloved Freddie from Cotillion.

  3. “I love you, you know,” he said conversationally. “Will you marry me?” A proposal to gladden the heart of any confirmed spinster: Miles to Abby in Black Sheep.

  4. “To be honest with you,” she said, with the utmost gravity, “I have been meaning to marry you these 10 days and more.” Do I even need to answer this one? The heroine-most-Heyerites-identify-with, Sarah Thane to the dry, sardonic, yet manly and secretly sporting a GSOH Sir Tristram Shield.

  5. “You have never bored me.” He possessed himself of her hands, and held them firmly. “The only woman I have ever known who has never done so.” Ah, Alverstoke! Ah, Frederica!

  6. “Little one,” he said, very low,”since you will stoop to wed me, I pledge you my word that you shall not in future have cause to regret it.” Another no-brainer. Perenially loved by readers but not so much by Heyer herself, Avon to Leonie in These Old Shades.

  7. “For years I never gave marriage a thought. And then I met you, and loved you, and found that I was thinking of very little else!” Please please me me me me me Sir Waldo. Oh damn, I guess Ancilla got there first. The Nonesuch.

  8. “I am trying to tell you that I love you, and all you will say is that I have beautiful manners!” Touching and adorable – The Corinthian.

  9. “Will you marry me, vile and abominable girl that you are?”  “Yes, but, mind, it is only to save my neck from being wrung!” Luv ya Sophie!

  10. “When you smile at me like that, it’s all holiday with me! Oh god, I love you to the edge of madness!” Luv ya even more Damerel. Reach for the handkerchief as you cheer Venetia on.
