Welcome to another edition of “First Line Friday”. I do so enjoy sharing with you and hearing what books you are reading. Make sure that you stop at my friends blogs also to see what books they are featuring.

This week I’m featuring the recently released ‘An Inconvenient Beauty’ by Kristi Ann Hunter. I’m sure you are no stranger to her fabulous regency novels. However, if you haven’t read her books yet, you may wish to read my review (click here).



Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797

The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.


Now it’s your turn!

  1. I need to catch up on this series. That’s a great opening line, too!

    I’ve got the first line from Janet Ferguson’s new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    “Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.”

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with ‘have a good weekend’, but I hope you do! 🙂

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    1908 4 days until Christmas
    “The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge.”

  3. I’m so jealous! I’m still waiting for Griffith’s story to arrive in my mailbox. Although, I have a feeling it’ll take even longer than usual due to Hurricane Irma to arrive. Things are slowly getting back to normal. Haha.

    I’m sharing about “The League and the Lantern” by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is “All of You” by Sarah Monzon.

    Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

    Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.

    Happy Weekend!

    1. I hope your book comes soon! It can take some time to get back to “normal” after a big storm like you had.
      I really enjoyed reading Sarah’s book! I’m looking forward to her next one that’s coming out soon!

      1. Oh boy is it going to take some time to fully recover and get back to normal. So many friends are still unable to go back to their homes or are without power still.

        Aw yay! I meant to read this one from Sarah while we were riding out the storm, but I couldn’t concentrate no matter what book I tried to read. 😦

  4. I am awaiting the arrival of Kristi’s book in the mail, too.
    Hers what I’m reading in the meantime.
    A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
    October 15, 1940
    Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

  5. I think I liked this almost as much as I liked the first (A Noble Masquerade).

    I don’t think my kids even know there was such a thing as film canisters. They were useful for a lot of random things, but I never made a rocket out of one!

    I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

    At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.


  6. I *am* a stranger to Kristi Ann Hunter’s regency books! I love good novels set in this time period, so I think that I should head on over to the library and request one of her books asap! 🙂
    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Can’t wait to read this book!!!

    Right now, I’m reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It’s the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

    “There was almost nothing there. Almost.”
