Hey everyone! Join in the fun. Even I don't know ALL the matches--because I've only read about the half the books. Bad because I've only read half the books. Good because I have so many wonderful books waiting to be read!

Enjoy the fun everyone!

Brenda Rumsey said...

I've not read all of these either, but so enjoyed the ones I have read. The others look tempting...smile. I love a good story....what can I say? This is a fun challenge. Thanks to all the authors that helped make it happen.

Angi Morgan said...

What? No Guesses, Brenda?

Linda said...

#2 is Her Bodyguard

Ugh, pass on the rest.

Angi Morgan said...

There are no wrong guesses.

(well, I guess you're technically wrong, but it won't keep you from being eligible...LOL)

Angi Morgan said...

Want to take a swing at the rest?
Donnell thought one would be very obvious...I agreed.

Naomi Stone said...

I won't even attempt this. I recognized two of the 'first lines' right away, but have no clue for the rest.

bn100 said...

not sure

Donnell Ann Bell said...

LOL, Cindy O.

Kathleen Baldwin said...

Well, this looks like fun! These are some scorching good first lines.

Now I'm going to have to dash over to Amazon to see which of you wrote what lines.

Yep, you heard me right. I'm going to cheat. :-)

LOVE IT.

Tammy Yenalavitch said...

Pretty sure I was the first to get them right. I own many of these books

Kathleen Baldwin said...

Way to go Tammy.
Looks like she's is right about a lot of them because... I really have been checking them out on Amazon.

Kathleen Baldwin said...

Love that Webb Jenkins line - Funny!!!

Donnell Ann Bell said...

You roc, Tammy, I'm impressed!

Anonymous said...

I was going to start looking these up but it looks like Tammy has them all. LOL I did another contest like this, but when you submitted your answers they didn't post for everyone to see. I think the author changed her blog setting so she'd get them.
