Book Hopping a la Maili

I was over visiting and Maili had posted a fun game "Book Hopping."

1. Take first five novels from your bookshelf.
2. Book 1 -- first sentence.
3. Book 2 -- last sentence on page 50.
4. Book 3 -- second sentence on page 100.
5. Book 4 -- next to the last sentence on page 150.
6. Book 5 -- final sentence of the book.
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph.
8. Feel free to "cheat" to make it a better paragraph.
9. Name your sources.
10. Post to your blog.

So, here goes:

He needed a woman. I think, what soft lips you have. And now he was beginning to have second thoughts about Chloe Underwood. She tugged him closer by a belt loop, fastening her mouth to one hard nipple and suckling. When he had kissed her into breathlessness, he scooped her into his arms and carried her upstairs, where true to the gentleman he was, he did not disappoint his lady.

1. Mackenzies Mountain--Linda Howard
2. The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing--Melissa Bank
3. Black Ice--Anne Stuart
4. Flirting with Danger--Suzanne Enoch
5. Scandal--Heather Cullman

The funny thing is I didn't really cheat. I left out the word Grandmother in the 2nd sentence, because in the context it creeped me out--lol, and in the 4th sentence I changed Samantha to "she". Not bad--LOL. All these books were sitting on my desk, right next to the computer.

Just posted mine, but I cheated a little and rearranged the books! I'm bad, but it makes a slightly better "story."
