What's That Line?

Everyone who visits this blog has one thing in common, they love to read. This game comes up whenever I can't think of something to write or the expected post doesn't pan out. So go to the current book you're reading or the last one that you read (if you're in-between books), turn to the page with the first kiss and type it in. Be sure to give us the name of the author and book. Then we can add it to our TBR pile.
I'm reading Lori Foster's RUN THE RISK.

At the first touch of his mouth on hers, she made a sound of pleasure, and Logan knew he was a goner.

The giveaway today is a $10 Amazon or B&N gift e-card (your choice) to one lucky commenter. 

As we've mentioned the last few weeks, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love are our speakers at the Romance Readers Luncheon November 3.  You can find out more information at If you've never attended, you will be surprised by how many books you get to take home along with all kinds of swag. And with there being 30 other authors, that's 30 chances of winning their baskets as a door prize. Most organizations only give away one door prize, we have one for every author hosting a table. Hope to see you there!

"In two quick steps he closed the distance between them, wrapped his arms hard around her body, put his mouth over hers, and kissed her."

From Edge of Oblivion (A Night Prowler Novel #2) by J.T. Geissinger.

"There in the darkness, with the only sounds the distant whisper of waves and the water lapping gently against their bodies, his lips sought hers, capturing them in the warm, soft trap of his own."

--"Unleashed" by Cherrie Lynn

Such a good book!! My favorite new author!

"A spark of determination burned a millisecond before she put her free hand against his jaw and pressed her lips to his."

From Intimate Enemies by Joan Swan

Maybe Too Good to Be True by Christy McKee- "He'd thought of nothing else but laying a kiss on her for the past three hours. “Shut up.” He
pulled her up against him. Before Gabrielle had time to object, Pierce dipped his head and
covered her mouth with his. It was meant to be a quick kiss—five seconds tops. But when he
settled over Gabrielle’s mouth, he needed more time"

WOW! These are great sentences. You can hear the author's voice in each one. Certainly grabs your attention. Keep them coming!

Thanks, Lisa J, Naima, Alison and Shannon.

"She pulled his mouth down to hers and kissed him instead." By Laurann Dohner

"The hand that had been touching her cheek slid around to cup the back of her neck before his lips descended. The instant his mouth touched hers she gasped a soft sound of surrender."
"A Silken Seduction" by Yvonne Lindsay

Arleigh said...

And then his lips touched her throat and nuzzled her neck. She gasped. His mouth found hers. She turned to fire.

Currently I'm reading Black Lament by Christina Henry. It is an Urban Fantasy and there is no kissing due to something big that happened in the last book! If there is kissing still to come, I don't want to know now - that would be a HUGE spoiler! I still HIGHLY recommend this series - first book is Black Wings... it's amazing!

And then suddenly his mouth had caught hers, and he pushed her against the side of the building, anchoring her with his own body.
