Author Heather Long: Best & Worst Pickup Lines

Heather Long


Did it hurt? Did what hurt? When you fell from heaven, did it hurt?

Welcome to the Love Boat. I’ll be your Captain.

Nice shoes, want to fuck?

Pick up lines are a dime a dozen, but some are funny, some are just sad, and others make

you pause to blink—but what they all do, is get your attention. One of the lines above

actually appeared in one of my books. I won’t tell you which one, because the whole

conversation had to do with pick up lines—oh you know, why not? The “nice shoes” line

appeared in The Two and the Proud. The debate between them was a lot of fun.

The best lines are the ones, which capture your attention and make you laugh. Even if the

laughter is punctuated by a groan. Life has long since taught me the true power of laughter

when it comes to making a memorable impression. Now, that said, the worst lines are

skeevy or beyond inappropriate. The nice shoes line, for example, teeters on the edge.

While it could come across as playful depending on the delivery, you better be certain of

your audience. Not all pick up lines happen in a bar, they can happen when you ask

someone out to a meal—when you deliberately arrange the situation so you can spend time

getting to know them better.

In my upcoming release, River Wolf, Pad Thai played a key role in an invitation to dinner

and pick up for the possibility something more…

RiverWolf-Heather Long

River Wolf Blurb

Brett Dalton, Alpha of Hudson River, isolated himself from his pack mates after one

betrayed him. The once, easygoing Alpha has become taciturn, remote and unforgiving. His

pack worries for him, but they too have suffered a devastating blow. When several

members leave to join Three Rivers, the pack faces the threat of dissolution until Brett’s

best friend and Lone Wolf, Luc Danes returns to Hudson River accompanied by a beautiful

young human—or is she? Something about the woman consumes Brett. Has Luc come

home to help or to take the pack from Brett?

Colby Jenson wrapped up thousands of hours of community service working at the hospital

in Maine when an injured Luc Danes rolled through the door. The impossible patient drove

the nurses crazy, but when Danes offered her money no strings attached to drive him to

New York, she agreed. The last thing she expected was to arrive in the small Westchester

County town and to meet the craziest collection of residents—especially the devastatingly

sexy Brett Dalton. Part of her wants to hit the road, the rest wants to make him smile and

he keeps making excuses for her to stay.

Then she sees the wolves…and is exposed to a world she can barely imagine. When Brett

discovers a secret about her, nothing will be the same again. Now she will find herself torn

between a world she isn’t sure she can understand and the man who has taken her heart
