Many times, when I least expect it, a phrase or a snatch of conversation pops into my head. I figure Iffy is doing a drive by but I always dutifully make note of her suggestions. Quite often, I incorporate them into the WIP or another project.
The other day on Facebook, Jennifer Lyon asked about favorite lines. While I might make note of favorites in someone else’s book, I don’t often acknowledge my own. I do have them. No, I do. I just can never recall them off the top of my head.
Today, I’m going to share a few of these. While I won’t mention which book the lines will likely appear in, I hope you enjoy anyway. 🙂

He had to do this right. After all, he had only this once to make love to her for the first time.
Hero: I wish you loved me.
Heroine: I wish I didn’t.
Yes, I know which two characters speak those last lines. No, I’m not saying because I’m not sure in which of their books I’ll use it.
What about y’all? Do you have a favorite line in one of your books? Or in someone else’s book? Share! And have a great weekend.:D
