Thirteen First (or first and second) Lines from my books.
Idea shamelessly stolen from NJ Walters, who did the same thing last week.
1. He looked like sin and seemed like salvation. Salvation for her sluggish libido, anyway. (Witch Fire)
2. The cup slipped from Moira’s fingers and crashed to the wooden floor of her home. (A Change of Season
3. Bianca sat on the floor of the crumbling building where she’d taken shelter. Her solar-powered lantern cast a dim light, bathing the bleached walls of the room in an eerie glow. (Water Crystal)
4. The blade could injure the wind itself. (Whisper of the Blade)
5. Mason downed the shot of whiskey in front of him and relished the burn of the alcohol down his throat. (Seduced in Twilight)
6. Jade’s heavy boots clanged on the metal walkway as she trekked across the heart of Harcourt Prison. All around her men stood at the bars of their cells catcalling and shouting obscenities. (Blood of the Damned)
7. Serena fought back a hard twinge of loneliness as she pushed aside a branch and stepped into the grove of oak trees that grew in the exact center of her thousand-acre property. (Ordinary Charm)
8. Ben had never believed in fate or destiny, not love at first sight. Hell, he’d never even believed in love. Codependency, maybe, but not love. He thought it was a myth, love. Just some name people gave to lust on steroids. (Edge of Sweetness)
9. Theo watched the glass slip from Miranda’s fingers and crash to the floor as the goblin walked into the restaurant. (Tempted by Two)
10. If only he could’ve fallen for a woman like that one. (Blood of an Angel)
11. Still a virgin. Was I destined to remain a virgin for the rest of my pathetic, royal life? (Getting Slayed)
12. Sienne glanced up, then lowered her eyes as was proper, but in that moment she memorized the visage of the man who would be her temporary keeper. (Winter Pleasures: The Capture)
13. “He can make you forget your own name in bed.”
Fate snapped out of her reverie and blinked at her acquaintance, Cynthia Hamilton. “Excuse me?” (Blood of the Raven)
