Posted February 10, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, romance, Toni Shiloh / 17 Comments

Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! 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 In Search of a Prince by Toni Shiloh, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

No matter how many times I look at this stunning cover, it takes my breath away!

and the first line is…

“Your Majesty, I’m afraid the news is not good.”


It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha’s Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell–Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?

  2. Of course it’s not good news if it is starting a book. 🙂 I just hope the “Your majesty” doesn’t shoot the messenger.
