First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books

First Line Friday: The Thorn Keeper

It’s KISSING BOOKS DAY, y’all!!! (Also known as Valentine’s Day)

And in honor of Kissing Books Day, I’m featuring one of MY favorite kissing books which not surprisingly also contains one of my favorite kissing scenes. In fact, that’s what I’m sharing a line from today, instead of the actual first line of the book. (Holiday rules apply here haha)

<<<<<< >>>>>>

The Thorn Keeper by Pepper Basham

and the first line is…

“Heaven help me, you taste like Christmas!”

  1. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Carrie!! Oh my goodness, I just talked about David and Catherine last night in my FB live for The Writers Alley! I love them so much! And they’re getting ready to have their 4 year bookiversary on Feb 28th!!! They haven’t reached 100 reviews yet on Amazon, so if anyone is wanting to share a little Valentine’s love with them, please add your thoughts 🙂

  2. The Penned in Time series is high on my TBR!

    The first line of my current read is: “Maggie Lofton punched the speed in her twin sister’s Corvette as a car rounded the corner behind her a little too fast.”
