  2. I’m sharing the first line of the latest novel from James L Rubart, The Man He Never Was on my blog.

    I’m currently reading The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon, a modern marriage of convenience story based on the Book of Esther. Here’s the first line of the Prologue:

    Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest.


  3. I’ve seen this book a lot lately. I will have to check it out.

    Happy Friday!

    Today over at my blog, I am sharing the first line from the novel An Improper Proposal by Davalynn Spencer. Here, I will share the first line from Janet Ferguson’s novel Leaving Oxford.

    “Baby steps. Sarah Beth LeClair forced one foot in front of the other and willed herself to soak in the new life bursting around her on the University of Mississippi campus.”


  4. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Grace White’s “Coveted”

    “He watched her through his mind’s eye. She was different: her mortal form fragile and unassuming. Nothing like the formidable and unforgiving Goddess he knew her to be. And yet, she was the same.”

    I super excited to continue on with this ya paranormal / fantasy series!


  5. My first line is from The Redemption of Lillie Rourke by Loree Lough…

    “Rain sheeted down the grimy window and puddled on the blacktop, and a dozen identical buses lined up in angled parking slots.”

    blessings, Tina
