The following quote is from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 16, “Le Mot Juste.” Copyright 2005 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“‘Ye’re smiling to yourself,’ Jamie said in my ear. ‘Nice, was it?’
I turned my head and opened my eyes, finding them on a level with his mouth—which was smiling, too.
‘Nice,’ I said thoughtfully, tracing the line of his wide lower lip with the tip of one finger. ‘Are you being deliberately modest, or are you hoping to inspire me to raptures of praise by means of classic understatement?’
The mouth widened further, and his teeth closed gently on my questing finger for a moment before releasing it.
‘Oh, modesty, to be sure,’ he said. ‘If I’d hopes of inspiring ye to raptures, it wouldna be with my words, now, would it?’
One hand ran lightly down my back in illustration.
‘Well, the words help,’ I said.
‘They do?’
‘Yes. Just now, I was actually trying to rank “I love you, I like you, I worship you, I have to have my cock inside you,” in terms of their relative sincerity.’
‘Did I say that?’ he said, sounding slightly startled.
‘Yes. Weren’t you listening?’
‘No,’ he admitted. ‘I meant every word of it, though.’ His hand cupped one buttock, weighing it appreciatively. ‘Still do, come to that.’”
