First Line Friday — Caught In The Crosshairs (from Targeted)

18 Nov

Happy Friday! Today I am featuring Caught in The Crosshairs by Natalie Walters, the final story in the novella collection Targeted. This book is perfect if you are looking for romantic suspense for your holiday reading — it is full of fast-paced action and of course some serious romantic chemistry. Each novella is hard to put down, so when you start one make sure you have some time set aside.

Here’s the first line:

“Only six Thursdays left.”

Get ready for triple the excitement, intrigue, and romance with three heart-stopping stories from your favorite romantic suspense authors! 

In On the Run, Lynette Eason introduces you to IT Specialist Daria Nevsky, a highly skilled FBI agent with the ability to hack any computer. She must go on the run to find out who wants her dead–and Dr. Ryker Donahue refuses to let her do it alone.

In Deadly Objective, Lynn H. Blackburn throws physical therapist Emily Dixon and Secret Service Agent Liam Harper into an impossible situation. They don’t know why the vice president’s son seems to be in the crosshairs of a killer, but they’ll sacrifice anything to keep him safe.

In Caught in the Crosshairs, Natalie Walters pits former Army PSYOPS officer Ari Blackman against his colleague, CIA officer Claudia Gallegos, when Claudia is implicated in the murder of a Saudi prince. Can he prevent a coup that would put America at risk?

    Targeted wa# a great book by three of my favorite authors!
    My first line comes from Nightfall in the Garden of Deep Time by award winner Tracy Higley!
    Prologue
    Location- from the street
    A wasted city lot, hidden behind a blank wall of moldering brick, empty of all but scrabbly weeds grown tree-height and the wind-blown detritus of several apathetic generations.

    I just finished this book and it was really good! I’m reading Blackout Book Club by Amy Lynn Green and the first line is: “Avis Montgomery, January 31, 1942, Derby, Maine – Avis gripped the ladder as her husband climbed, a thick swath of black bunting draped over his shoulder.” ~ Hope you’re having a good weekend!
