and the first line is…

Two days after the undertakers lowered his mother’s casket into its wintry grave, Henry Pollard found the letter.


Thrilled with her new independence, Susannah decides she doesn’t need a man to complete her life. Yet she falls in love with Edward.

Edward’s bachelor creed is to date a woman three times and walk away. Then he meets Susannah. Loving her is dangerous for his career goals, but he can’t resist her.

When Edward’s law firm assigns him an out-of-state project, will his career success remain his priority, or will the woman he loves become his major concern? Find out in this unforgettable first novel in the Emotions of the Heart series.

If you like wholesome romance that brings together a city boy and a small-town girl, don’t miss this intriguing and entertaining love story that can be read as a standalone.

    This sounds like a good book. I just finished A Sprinkle In Time by Dana Mentink. The first line is:
    Trinidad Jones had never before realized how much her senior dog Noodles appreciated yodeling

  2. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading A Perilous Plan by Melanie Dickerson. I’m really enjoying it!
    “Penelope felt sick. David and Camille? How Camille must be laughing at her for being gullible and senseless.”
    I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fun reading time!

    My first line comes from To Tame A Cowboy by Jody Hedlund :
    Front Range, Colorado Territory, May, 1867
    “Savannah Marshall’s heart pulled taut like a rope in a tug-of-war.”

    I just finished In Honor’s Defense by Karen Witemeyer.
