Lois Greiman is in the house! This successful author of more than 22 published novels has a very interesting background. Born on a cattle ranch in North Dakota, Lois now lives on a small farm in Minnesota with, according to her website, "three children, fifteen horses and a menagerie of pets." Between North Dakota and Minnesota, she worked as a high fashion model, a fitness instructor, a veterinary assistant and she also professionally trained and showed Arabian horses. Honestly, I'm not sure where she finds the time to write! Please give her a warm welcome!
Romance novels…I love 'em. But, after writing a couple dozen of them, I finally decided I wanted to try something a little different. Hence, Unzipped, the first book in my Chrissy McMullen series was released from Bantam Books about five years ago. And even though it was a new avenue for me, I found that I really didn't venture too far from my usual haunts. There's still a strong relationship running through the series. There's still flirting and double entendres and that love/hate chemistry that makes me keep coming back for more. But my favorite thing about romance is the pick up lines. I lovvvve me a corny pickup line. So, in honor of romance novels, love/hate chemistry, and mystery novels that reallllly kind of want to be romance novels, here are a few of my favorites:
What has 142 teeth and holds back the incredible hulk? My zipper.
Hi. I have big feet.
Roses are red, candlelight flickers, after the meal, it's off with the knickers.
If a fat man puts you in a bag tonight, don't worry, I told Santa I wanted you for Christmas.
Would you help me find my lost puppy? I think he went into that cheap hotel room across the street.
Your eyes are as blue as my toilet water at home.
I'm not actually this tall. I'm sitting on my wallet.
Are you a parking ticket? Cuz you got 'fine' written all over you.
Not that my male protagonist, Lieutenant Jack Rivera, would ever use any of those corny lines. But Chrissy McMullen…all bets are off where she's concerned. After writing seven of her novels, I'm still surprised at what she'll say or how many new ways she'll think up to torment the good lieutenant.
To celebrate the release of Uncorked, the seventh Chrissy novel, I'm giving away an Amazon gift card to one much appreciated commenter. So…what's your favorite pick up line?
