Author Robin Covington: Best & Worst Pick-up Lines

Robin Covington


The best pick-up line I ever experienced was in college (so many years ago!). I was at a party

and I knew the guy who was throwing the party pretty well since we’d been flirting back and

forth for several weeks. He invited me to it and I just “knew” that this was the night when we

would move beyond the friendship stage. The party was great and it stretched into the wee

hours of the morning and as people left, I stayed behind but the guy didn’t approach me or

make a move. He was pretty shy and quiet but I figured I’d read his signals wrong and I got

ready to leave but his loudmouth roommate got me to stay as more and more people left.

I finally got fed up and I made my move to leave when the “shy guy” chased me out into the

hallway and asked if I had enjoyed the party. I was a little irritated and I let him know that I didn’t

understand why he’d invited me to a party and then practically ignored me all night. He stepped

forward and grabbed my hand, his cheeks red from his blush as he told me that he’d thrown the

party just for me, the sole purpose was to get up the nerve to kiss me goodnight.

He leaned over and laid a kiss on me that made my toes curl. It was fabulous and we dated for

a while after that.


Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was never supposed to be ruler of Callanos. He was the “spare to

the heir,” pursuing a decadent life of the rich and royal—extreme sports, physical pleasures, and

glorious irresponsibility. Until his brother died. Now Nick is to be coronated king, and no one

believes he’s ready.

The best way to secure his crown is to do the unthinkable…find a queen.

While Isabel Reynolds works in the palace gardens, she has no desire to draw the attention of

the way-too-flirty, would-be king. For she’s not the woman everyone thinks she is. Even if she

wanted—or was tempted by—the promise of love, it would only end in disaster. Because while

Isabel may be able to catch a king, her secrets would only destroy him…
