Good Repartee

"Here is what Star Helmer, vice president of Harlequin, said about her books:

Good repartee is something that people generally talk about why they like romances, if they’re getting into specifics.  Most people when they’re angry and they’re getting in an argument do not have the witty, precise comebacks.  You usually think about it two days later and say, oh, you know, why didn’t I think of it?"
