First Line Friday (and a Giveaway!): The Bull Rider’s Fresh Start

Posted September 3, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, Heidi McCahan, romance / 30 Comments

Welcome to the new home of First Line Friday! The other dear blogger friends who joined me on Hoarding Books have each had to step away from regular blogging for an indefinite season. But I still have first lines to share, so I offered to bring it back to RimSP where this incarnation of First Line Friday started. I will be posting the link-up here from now on, and I invite all of you to participate! Without further ado… 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 The Bull Rider’s Fresh Start by Heidi McCahan, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first lines are…

He’d clung to the back of enraged bulls for thousands of wild rides. In his tireless pursuit of world champion status, he’d endured a punctured lung, broken bones and more torn ligaments than he cared to recall. But never once had a crying baby threatened to bring him to his knees.


This cowboy can charm almost anyone…

except the mother of his surprise baby girl.

Former bull rider Landon Chambers has made mistakes. Big ones. But discovering that he’s the father of a sweet little girl might be the best thing ever. Now Landon just has to convince her mother, navy diver Kelsey Sinclair, that his wild, troubled cowboy days are over. But Kelsey’s not quite sure she can trust Landon with her little girl…or her cautious heart.

    Thanks for keeping FLF going so we can see what others are reading, Carrie. I am reading a new to me author, Traci Hunter Abramson, and she has a book coming out later this month, Redemption. This is the first lines.
    Perspiration beaded on Eric’s forehead. The plan had been so simple.

    Thank you for keeping this going, I enjoy the FLF posts! My first line comes from The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright: “Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.”

    Forever Home by Amy Grochowski
    A sensible Amish woman aspired to marry, as Lydia Miller was reminded daily. She also knew any wise Amish woman ought to bypass schemes destined to failure. Yet here she stood, determined to avoid the first and ready to plunge headlong into the second.

    I am sharing the first line from the book by Jo Saxton The Dream of You. Hey friend, You are fully known and deeply loved by the living God.
