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 Driving Force by Kate Angelo (with Lynette Eason), currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

Today was going to be a breeze – a thirty degrees below zero in the frozen tundra of Siberia breeze.


He’s the last client she wants to protect…

Elite Guardians bodyguard/former sniper CHRISTINA SHERMAN has protected uncooperative clients before—but this time, well her client is bossy, headstrong and occasionally eats off the floor. Yes, he’s a highly trained military working dog, but certainly her skills could be put to better use, right?

Not according to former Special Forces Air Commando GREY PARKER. He needs her help to protect his dog while he undergoes an experimental surgery that could restore his ability to walk. He just needs someone to keep his canine partner safe. Most of all, Grey wants back on his feet so he can track down a deranged scientist known as The Scavenger who unleashed a nerve agent that left Grey sidelined in a wheelchair.

When an attempt is made on Grey’s life, and dead bodies begin piling up—with evidence the same toxin is responsible—suddenly Christina is tasked with keeping both dog and soldier alive…and with them, the secrets that could stop a terrorist attack.

But this time, even Christina might be in over her head.

Dive into the exciting ignition to the Elite Guardians Collection.

    This book is on my TBR list. I am reading The Baxter: A Prequel by Karen Kingsbury.
    Outside Kari Baxter’s French bedroom window, storm clouds gathered in the early morning sky over Bloomington, Indiana.

  2. Lisa Sabatini

    First line of the book nearest me: “Oh, Amber Lee, you look beautiful,” I cooed, smiling at her gorgeousness, pleasantly surprised her billowing gown didn’t dwarf her petite frame.
    from Dakota, by Sarah Patt

  3. I want to read this!
    And not to be super-spiritual, but the first line of the book nearest me is “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Guess who forgot to put her Bible away after devotions! I am in that unhappy state of not yet having decided on my next read.

  4. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from Shadowed Loyalty by Roseanna White:
    June, 1922. Chicago
    The wind tore down the alley, forcing Sabina Mancari to hold her cloche hat in place with one hand as she stepped around the corner.

  5. I just bought this book. Can’t wait to read it.

    Happy Friday!
    I’m just starting The Valet’s Secret by Josi S. Kilpatrick, so I’ll share the first line from there.
    “If Kenneth Bartholomew Winterton had learned anything in his life, it was that there were things a man could live without and there were things that were entirely essential.”
    Hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤📚
