First Encounters Fridays – 3/22/13

First Encounters Friday is something new I’m trying out.  Here I will give you a little glimpse into a book I’ve read or currently reading – it will be the very first meeting of two main characters, whether it’s the first time they have ever met, or the first time they have encountered each other within the book.

Today’s encounter is from The Rogue’s Princess by Eve Edwards

Who we are meeting: Kit Turner and Mercy Hart

Today’s First Encounter comes from Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill

Who are we meeting:  Julie Lichtenstein and Jason Lippincott

        “Book Licker!” He says, invoking my least favorite junior-high nickname. He grins, several freckles on his forehead scrunching together. “Enjoying the flight?”
