My friend Tara, whose first book comes out on Friday, tagged me on the Lucky Seven meme. The rules are as follows:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know
I'm likely to cut the scene below from my manuscript of "Reincarnation," but, I'm following the rules, so here it is. Oddly, my character is drunk, as was Tara's. That's all the context you're getting, because the character's identity is a spoiler for book 1.

“I'm too old for you,” he blurted out, then mortification forced his eyes shut. He'd heard her mental assessment of him as “cute,” and taken a mental leap. The alcohol had done the rest.
