Ok party people! It's that time again! First Line Friday's hosted by my amazing friend Kathy over at Bookworm Nation! Are you ready?!
This week's First Line Friday is:
The Reclusive Billionaire by Lucy McConnell
Lucas Scott, a world-renowned microbiologist, is desperate to find a cure for the butterfly flu before it spreads. Hounded by the media, he escapes to his houseboat in Santa Barbara where he meets a vivacious veterinarian with a penchant for taking in strays. While he searches for the key to unlocking the butterfly flu, Becca somehow unlocks his analytical heart.
Becca Lee isn't impressed with her new neighbor. His clothes are constantly wrinkled and he's grumpier than a cat with digestive problems. However, Luke isn't easy to brush off. He's always around, has a magnificent mind, and is full of surprises. But, what she can't figure out is why her instincts tell her to trust this rouge billionaire. It doesn't take long to realize he is the only one alive who can save the world and Becca has to make a choice--open her heart or watch Luke sail off into the sunset.
"Dr. Scott! Dr. Scott! Running his hands up the sides of the dark wood, Dr. Lucas Scott gripped the edge of the lectern, feeling the corners dig into his palms in an effort to ground himself enough to make a coherent statement in front of the dozens of reporters in his press room."
I am a HUGE fan of Lucy McConnell! I absolutely LOVE all of her Billionaire books! They were the first books of hers that I read and are definite auto-buys without even reading the synopsis. (I'm a rebel like that!) ;) When I heard she was writing a new Billionaire series, along with a few other authors, I knew I would be adding more Billionaire books to my collection. :)
Rainy weather, a comfy blanket and a good book! It's shaping up to be the perfect weekend! Now all I have to do is make it through my work day and I'll be good to go! ;) Hehe.
