Thursday Thirteen #10



Since I’m kicking off my Backlist Bonanza Book of the Week Contest, I thought I’d list thirteen opening lines from my stories.

1. Pain lanced through Sienna McKade’s body, white hot and relentless.
Flight of the Valkyrie

2. Bree Sennett clamped her lips shut on a startled gasp as a long shadow fell across her hiding place. The Soul Jar

3. Moonlight bathed the meadow in quicksilver and stretched long, inky shadows from the surrounding trees. Renna’s Sacrifice

4. Nola Rule studied the man at the bar, noting every detail of his appearance. A Calculated Risk.

5. Zira woke shivering. Gasping, she drew in a breath of cool air that ignited her tortured lungs. Ken’Ja

6. “I get tired of them throwing their panties at me.” The Adventures of Molten Man, No. 1

7. Cade Morrison eyed his surly reflection in the small mirror that hung next to the door of his office. The Demon of Pelican Bluff

8. As she shrugged out of her bikini top and thigh-high denim cutoffs, Mara Zander felt the intoxicating weight of a masculine gaze on her body. More Than A Fantasy

9. The midnight breeze had a cool edge to it that heralded the arrival of autumn. Hunter’s Moon

10. Ra’Nara shivered and pulled her worn cloak closer around her shoulders. Ravenstar’s Bride

11. The coachman shivered as he urged his horses faster through the darkest part of the forest. Conjured in Flames

12. The sultry beat coming from the interior of After Dark competed with the staccato of Erica Talbot’s heart as she approached the side door of the night club. Fresh Blood

13. Jake Beaumont saw red. Bonfire of the Vampires
