What’s My Line with Shana Galen

My latest release, Love and Let Spy, is out this month. Instead of the usual blog, I thought I’d play a modified version of what’s my line with you. I’ll post a few lines from each of the first 5 chapters. You tell me your favorite in the comments—don’t forget to leave your email—and one person who comments will win a copy of Love and Let Spy.



Chapter One
She did a quick calculation then dove out the window, pulling her knees in so when she landed on the awning she would roll easily to the edge. She held her breath for the free fall and felt the air whoosh out of her when she hit the fabric.

But she didn’t roll.

Chapter Two
“I don’t care how beautiful or rich or bloody socially acceptable she is,” Dominic said, turning fiercely from the drawing-room mantel. “I am not marrying her.”

Chapter Three
He dipped his tongue between her lips and met her tongue with his. The effect was electric. She jumped beneath him, and the shot of arousal he felt was all but dizzying. He knew he must stop. This was a gentle­woman, the niece of Lord Melbourne. He could not kiss her this way.

Chapter Four
She thought she remembered Q saying to wait a quarter of an hour. Perhaps it had been three-quarters of an hour? Oh, bollocks! Jane did not have time to waste. She would go and hope for the best. Nine out of ten of Q’s inventions worked.

Jane stood at her window and looked down at the drop. Please let this be one of the nine.

Chapter Five
“Are you implying I am not a lady?” She took a menacing step toward him, and though he did not retreat, she thought she saw a flicker of concern in his eyes. “A piece of advice, Mr. Griffyn. A gentleman never even hints that a woman is not a lady, no matter what insult she has given you.”

His brow arched. “I believe we’ve already established I am no gentleman.”

Now you get to play! What was your favorite snippet? Answer in the comments and don't forget your email if you want to be considered for the giveaway. One more stipulation. Sorry but this is U.S./Canada only.

  1. Those are so good but I liked chapter five - I love a feisty heroine, especially when the hero finally gets a taste of her power and independence and fears it, just a little!! Love it!!

  5. I love the comment from chapter two:

    "I don't care how beautiful, or rich, or bloody socially acceptable she is," Dominic said, turning fiercely from the drawing-room mantle, " I am not marrying her."

  6. Well, I loved Chapter 3. I'm into all this hot stuff, and you always write it so well. "He dipped his tongue between her lips and met her tongue with his. The effect was electric. She jumped beneath him, and the shot of arousal he felt was all but dizzying. He knew he must stop. This was a gentle­woman, the niece of Lord Melbourne. He could not kiss her this way."

  9. Hard to choose. For me it is a tie between 4 and 5. Love the humor in both.

  12. LOVE Chapter 5...a little banter about lady and gentleman sure makes me want to know what happens next. Does she prove she's a lady or does he prove he's not a gentleman?

  15. I really like all of them, but Chapter 4 is my favorite. Who doesn't love Q's inventions whether they work perfectly or not.....

    1. Q was a fun character to write. She even got her own subplot, which I did not intend!
