First Line Fridays

Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  A Most Suitable Bride
by Rose Pearson

And the first line is...

"'There is less excitelment this year, I think.'  Lady Hayward nodded in understanding as Lady Maria Forrest looked out of the window once more, her heart no longer as eager nor as delighted as it had been last Season."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!   

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to 
Hoarding Books to see who else is participating! 



  1. Regency Romance is probably my favorite genre! Enjoy :) I hope you can stop by:


    1. I completely agree with you Colletta--there are so many wonderful books to read in the Regency genre. My TBR list is long and growing! Happy reading!

  2. That one looks good!

    My first line is from:
    A Cowboy for Keeps by Jody Hedlund
    Colorado Territory August 1862
    “Stop or we’ll shoot! “ A dozen feet up Kenosha pass, three robbers with flour sacks over their heads blocked the way, their revolvers outstretched.
    I finished it on January 8.

  3. The book I'm featuring on my blog today is An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz. I will share the first line from my current read here, The Red Siren, by MaryLu Tyndall. "This was Dajon Waite's last chance." I wish you an enjoyable weekend.

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from "The Art of Rivers" by Janet W. Ferguson:

    "Love, like art, took on different forms with each creator."

  5. Happy Friday. 😊
    "Sylvie hadn't always leapt to the worst possible conclusion. But being a parent seemed to enlarge her imagination as much as it did her heart."
    Shadows of the White City, Jocelyn Green

  6. Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Glory Falls by Janine Rosche
    "Heroes don't wear crooked capes" Cecelia "Blue" Walker straightened the knotted ends of the pillowcase in front of Thomas's throat."

    Happy Weekend, Happy Reading! ♥

    1. Thank you Kelly-Ann! Have a great weekend too and happy reading!
