First Line Fridays: More Dangerous Pursuits Novellas

Welcome back to First Line Fridays. I haven’t participated in a while, but I wanted to share with you the first lines of the upcoming novellas from the Dangerous Pursuits authors. Whet your appetite for 15 suspenseful tales from some of today’s best-selling authors, filled with mystery, murder, and absolute mayhem! Come back each week to get a taste of what’s to come!

Heidi Martin flipped on the overhead light

and looked into the eyes of a killer.

A Dark Silence by Dana R. Lynn

Deaf since birth, Heidi Martin is excited about her new career as a counselor at the school for the deaf. Until she walks in on a murder and must flee to stay alive. Desperate, she has no where to turn but Sergeant Tyler Davis, the man who saved her life, but spurned her love, years ago.

Even with the pillow pressed tight against his ears,

Fitz could hear the baby’s wails.

Never Think Twice by Loree Lough

NEVER THINK TWICE is the story of Brooks (Fitz) Fitzgerald, former Marine turned recovery agent (aka bounty hunter). When his parents were killed in a head-on collision, he was tasked with the job of raising Pete, his 15 years younger, wayward brother. Enter their best friend, Matilda (Matt) Casey, who balances caring for her Alzheimer’s grandfather with running his gas station/grocery store. Unbeknownst to any of them, one of the felons he delivered to the authorities has spent every day of his life-without-parole sentence thinking up ways to get even with Fitz. Joe Michaels escapes the maximum security prison and makes a beeline to Ellicott City, where Fitz, Matt, Pete and his 10-month-old son Jake, live. What better way to lure Fitz into his net than by kidnapping Matt and Jake… at gunpoint!

The fist pounded on Lola’s door,

almost drowned out by the crash of thunder.

A Dark Road Home by Dana Mentink

After a tragic mistake, Lola Armstrong left the U.S. Marshals and fiancé, rancher Abe Everhart, far behind. Now Abe’s on her doorstep with retrograde amnesia and his twin niece and nephew in tow. Is his tale of police corruption and a plot to take the twins real? And why was he headed to Lo’s remote cabin instead of the airport? Soon they are on the run with only each other to trust and four lives hanging in the balance. It will take all their ingenuity and faith to make the perilous journey to reach safe haven.

    My first line this week is from The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery by Amanda Cox :
    Sarah nudged aside last night’s puddle of clothes with her bare foot, the exposed designer label sticking out a bit too much.

    Happy Friday!
    I’m currently on chapter 26 of Crossed Lines by Jennifer Delamere, so I’ll share from there.
    “‘It’s a coach maker’s shop!’ Emma said in surprise, reading the sign painted over the door.”
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

    They all sound wonderful. I am going to begin Defending Britta Stein by Ronald H. Balson. The first line is “Judge Obadiah Wilson peers over his reading glasses at the two attorneys who stand before him and he smiles.
