Today I am going to post a line from:

A Convenient Christmas Wedding 
by Regina Scott

And the first line is...

Seattle, Washington Territory 
December 1866

"What better time than a wedding to ask a man to marry you?"  

Happy reading and have a wonderful and safe Black Friday!  


  1. 7 Heart Ranch, Hartville, Texas

    "Quiet down, now." George Washington Hart put his hands flat on the dining room table and levered himself upright. "I have something to say." - 7 Brides for 7 Texans Romance Collection by Erica Vetsch, Amanda Barratt, Susan Page Davis, Keli Gwyn, Vickie McDonough, Gabrielle Meyer and Lorna Seilstad. It just came in today's mail.


    1. I love novella collections! I will have to check this one out--I actually just picked up three Christmas novella collections yesterday.

  2. My first line is from Jaded by Varina Denman, which I am giving a copy away this week.

    "Ruthie, did you hear? There's a new kid up at the school."

    1. That's a great idea--I will have to have a book giveaway on my blog soon. :)

  3. I've heard some great reviews for that one!

    Lake Michigan
    I am living my nightmare. A violent storm has overtaken our steamship, and as we mount high on the crest of a wave one moment, then plunge sickeningly into a watery trough the next, I am certain we are about to sink.

    Had to let you in on the second line there, too much suspense for just one little line!

    1. I know! I find that I want to include the first paragraph--not just the first line. :)

    2. The struggle is real!
      Waves of Mercy by Lynn Austin... my brain must have been in a turkey fog!

  4. London February 1770, My Precious Lord; My only hope; My Saviour, How I need you now. Eleanor Morgan repeated the words, over and over, scrubbing her fingernails more vigorously with each repetition. I know, I cheat...Haha!

    1. It's so hard not to add more than one line! :) Plus, I love these lines--you really need to know who uttered them. I know I have said them before in my prayers.
