Opening Lines - Romance Novels from Authors I Love

If you're an avid reader like me, you know there are hundreds of thousands of books to choose from. No one can sort through them all. Yet, there are books out there that really deserve to be read. So I've decided to showcase some authors I know and love. Today, I'm featuring romance novels. In the coming days, I'll focus on other genres simply because I've never read a genre I didn't love.

Enjoy the opening lines from these novels and see if any (or all) of them tickle your fancy. J

Myrna MacKenzie's The Rancher's Unexpected Family

Kathryn Ellis closed her eyes and took a deep breath. What she was about to do, seeking out Holt Calhoun when he clearly didn't want to be found…

You can find The Rancher's Unexpected Family at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Visit Myrna MacKenzie at her website, on Facebook, and on Twitter.  

Karen Cantwell's Kiss Me, Tate

Bunny Bergen's greatest weakness was her inability to see past people's social veneers. Which was why she found herself standing with a cardboard box tucked under one arm and a severance check in her other hand, wondering what the heck had just happened.

Melissa McClone's Home For Christmas

"You didn't tell me the Bar V5 held the Guinness World Record for the longest driveway." Rachel Murphy stared out the window of her brother Tyler's 4x4 pickup. Against Montana's big sky—a gorgeous, cloudless, cornflower blue this December morning—the snow covering tree branches and mountaintops was white enough to eat, like whipped cream or better yet meringue.

Annie Jones's The Christmas Sisters

"Persuasion, Alabama, ain't even a town anymore, Sam Moss." The old black man drew his antler-handled knife along a thick stick. Bark curled and fell onto the cracked leather of his spit-shined wingtips. "It's just scraps and bones."

Jackie Weger's On A Wing And A Prayer

"Santee, you hang on to Nicholas," Rebecca ordered as she lined up the five orphans just inside the hangar door. She had an instant sensation of space and unfamiliar shadow. The building, huge and poorly lit and smelling of grease, much like a mechanic's garage, intensified the sensation. Rebecca shivered. She'd had misgivings about this trip from the start, but her arguments against it had fallen on deaf ears.
