Happy Friday, y’all!

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

Last week we mixed it up a bit – and we’ll do that again next week – but this week I’m tired (lol) and uncreativeish so we’re resorting back to the old standby for today 😀

The book I’m featuring today is A Promise in Defiance by Heather Blanton.

And the first line is….

“I don’t know, Matthew.”

    “The Atlantic water rushed past her limbs in a silken caress.” Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble. I’m a little slow with this book, because it’s a hard print copy and too hard to read in bed at night. Each night I wish I had it on my kindle so I could keep reading!

  2. I read A Lady in Defiance recently and loved it! My first line this week is “The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and the drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive.” Can you guess which book it is from?

  3. “Uncle Truck keeps a German shepherd on his farm that’ll eat human fingers if you if you feed ’em to it just right.” Annabel Lee (A Coffey & Hill Novel) by Mike Nappa

  4. How nice of you to share about book one in the series I am reading. 😉

    “Never had the sound of falloping horses brought Chief Ouray anything but death and disaster.”
    ~Hearts in Defiance by Heather Blanton

    “Pretty as a peach,” drawled a deep voice above the burble of the creek. – Gilding the Waters by Catherine Richmond.

  6. “Dru lifted her handgun, leveling it on Gray’s stalker as she rushed forward through the crowd.” — Her One And Only by Becky Wade. Great way to start a book!

  7. Cyndi

    Dear Neil, I’ve started this email several times, and I know that doesn’t mean a lot because you’ve yet to receive a completed draft, but it’s true. ~from Together at the Table by Hillary Manton Lodge. Really enjoyed the first 2 in the series!

  8. Winnie Thomas

    “This was your dire emergency? Seriously?” — Riverbend Road by RaeAnne Thayne. RaeAnne isn’t a Christian fiction author, but she is a friend and author of more than 50 books, at least one of which has hit the New York Times Top Ten list. She lives near me and is such a sweetheart! You might encounter a bit of swearing in her books (d and h words) but no steamy bedroom scenes.

  9. Susan

    We only see what we want to see- in people, in love, and in life. – The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambton. I only have about 70 pages left. Great read!

    Harrison Gray had never heard of anyone holding a competition over mounting or dismounting a horse, but then, Charlotte Andrews could turn anything into a contest.
    “Engaging The Competition” by Melissa Jagears in the “With This Ring Collection”
    I loved that book!
