My short story at The Wild Rose Press, THE PRICELESS GIFT, is a number one best seller. It tells the story of Gavin and Christine, two people who were burned in the past by people they loved. They have a lot of baggage with them when they meet while on a Mediterranean cruise. Because of that, they don't reveal their true identities, which might have been a good idea in hind sight, since they fell in love with each other. But they didn't and when the cruise was over, Christina returned to Hawaii and Gavin returned to his ranch in Montana. Little did they know that Santa had secret plans to bring these two people together.
The opening line of this story is one of my all time favorites. Here's the opening paragraph:
Gavin Holloway was a leg man and the legs standing beside the information desk had more than his attention on alert. Her short skirt showed off nearly all of her sexy, lightly tanned legs and molded the cutest ass he’d seen in quite a while…not since he’d been with Lynn on that cruise six months before.
What's your favorite open lining? Either one you wrote or one you read in someone else's books?
