I thought it would be fun go back in time and post the opening six from To the Limit, my RWA Golden Heart® finalist, published by Harlequin. The was the first "book of my heart," and the second manuscript I ever finished.
I'll let my hero, Nicholas Romero, introduce my heroine, Mary Beth Williams. Here are keywords I would use to describe To the Limit: romantic adventure, kidnapping, South America, diplomat, librarian. Here are the opening six:
