13 LINES

I've seen people do this-and I thought I would give it a shot. Here are 13 lines from Lifting the Veil-which just released Wednesday.

1. Of all the things she’d ever imagined herself doing,
hawking an herbal remedy for erectile dysfunction that advertised itself as “the perfect way to RISE to the occasion” was definitely not among them.

2. “So, are they naked?”

3. “She is incredible, isn’t she?” Finn waggled his elegant brow. “Not only a voice that would tempt a saint, but that body! For such a tiny little thing, she has got one amazing
pair of—”

4. Bob was a Greek god.

5. As they stood in line in the ladies’ room, Meru listened to Sheridan’s relentless lecture on the evils of drinking and biting strange men.
So did the six other girls crammed into the smallish space with them.
From the looks on their faces, they thought her cousin was as crazy as she did. They must have seen the buff god she was dancing with.

6. “And why does your ex-boyfriend, who you never told me was such a prick by the way, suddenly look like a refugee from Snake town?"

7. “Are you sure somebody didn’t slip me a Mickey?” he asked hopefully. “Or maybe I have malaria. Are there spots on my tongue?” He stuck out his tongue.

8. “For heaven’s sake, look around you, Sher. We’re in a room full of Shifters and Faeries and Druids.”
“Oh my.”

9. The long mirror above the bathroom counter gave him an unhindered view of paradise, all the lush hills and valleys of his own personal Eden.

10. “Leabhar na cailleacha, tar ar ais chugam!”

11. In reality, his nearness was eroding her ability to think beyond the rather primitive, monosyllabic level of—You. Me. Floor. Now.

12. “All right,” she grumped. “But if you fall in love and get married, just know that Auntie Sheridan is not going to get stuck at home babysitting the puppies.”

13. “You’re playing a dangerous game, Meru.” His rasping voice slid down her spine in a rough caress and she shivered. “If you act like prey, the predator in me will want to run you down.”

Okay... Numbers 7 and 11 made me laugh out loud. I like these - but should I be laughing this much?

Ciao!

Oooh--well, that experiment was certainly a success, if you're trying to be tempting, that is. :-) Ellora's Cave is beginning to love me as much as Barnes & Noble.
