First Line Friday (and a Giveaway!): Coming Home to Maverick

Posted June 26, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, romance / 9 Comments

Happy Friday! And welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books!!! Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of Coming Home to Maverick by Sophia Summers, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first lines are…

Maverick dipped his hat lower against the hot Texas sun. A man’s hat could hide a lot of things, unfortunately not everything.


Bailey is back. Maverick thought he was over her. But neither can deny the feelings that will always be there.

Bailey has made mistakes, so many she doesn’t think she’ll really ever forgive herself. But her daughter deserves the kind of life Bailey had growing up. When she shows up on her parents’ doorstep back to her hometown, the one person she isn’t ready to see is Maverick. But will she ever be able to face him?

The minute Maverick hears Bailey is back, he knows his heart still belongs to her. But what kind of man trusts a woman who left him at the altar? As he grapples with a new daughter that he can’t help but wish was his, all the responsibilities of running his family’s ranch, and the hurt he feels about Bailey’s betrayal, he finds new love and hope not only with her but with God.

As soon as God is a part of the equation, the sweetness they find is better than they ever had. Just maybe this second chance around is God’s gift of happiness to them both.
