These are snippets that caught my attention–with the image created by the language, by the language itself, or just because. 🙂
From WICKED DESIGNS (Book of of the League of Rogues) by Lauren Smith (a Regency romance):
He thought he was entitled to her, but after the way he’d treated her in his study, he deserved no cooperation, not unless he groveled…on his knees…for at least an hour.
It made me laugh. The heroine is VERY feisty in this one.
From HARD AS YOU CAN (Hark Ink #2) by Laura Kaye (a sexy contemporary):
He knew Baltimore had some rough neighborhoods, but this one was so run-down that both sides of the tracks were wrong.
Some songs carried memories like the images were imprinted upon the very lyrics themselves, and she had no doubt this would be one of them.
And pulling up some “oldies” from rereading a few of the In Death books. From IMMORTAL IN DEATH by J.D. Robb:
Holding onto the memory was like trying to hold onto a fistful of water. [Eve Dallas]
The look in her eye had him rising, stepping back. He was a man who adored women, and understood their wrath. In other words, he feared them. [Leonardo, clothing designer]
What about y’all? Any words strike your fancy lately?
