Is it just me, or are you a little surprised that we are here at the last Friday of September? This month has just flown by! Next month First Line Friday’s will be hosted by Hoarding Books!

Today, I’m featuring Her Cherokee Groom by Valerie Hansen. I enjoy reading stories about Native Americans, and Cherokee especially.  Click here to read my review.


On the run from false murder charges, Annabelle Lang can only count on one man, Cherokee diplomat Charles McDonald. The handsome ambassador has already helped her escape Washington City. Now he’s proposing marriage to protect her honor. Though she’s losing her heart to Charles, Annabelle’s certain his offer comes from duty, not love.

Charles’s feelings for the flaxen-haired beauty go beyond mere companionship, but he’s doubtful a lady like Annabelle would ever consider him under normal circumstances. And with his family expecting him to wed a Cherokee bride, he wouldn’t have asked. If it’s more than convenience that binds Charles and Annabelle, there’s only one way to find out—he’ll have to court his own wife!


Washington, DC – 1830

“What are you doing out here? Spying?”


How about that first line? Doesn’t it make you want to pick up the book to find out who is spying and what they spying on?

  1. Definitely an intriguing first line!

    I’m featuring the first line from Melissa Tagg’s “All This Time” on my blog this week. I can’t believe the Walker Family series is finished! 😭 But here, I’m going to share the first line from Chapter 1 of Toni Shiloh’s new release, Returning Home:

    Jo Ellen Baker slammed the tailgate of her pickup shut.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. That’s a great first line! I’m sharing the first line from Rachel Hauck’s Once Upon a Prince today. “What did he say? The storm gusts moving over the Atlantic must have garbled his words. ‘I can’t marry you.'”

  3. I REALLY enjoyed that book!!!
    Happy Friday! My first line is from Magnolia Storms by Janet Ferguson:
    “Fear and loss snaked around Magnolia Marovich’s heart like they always did when she studied the satellite images on the three computer screens in front of her. Not again.”

  4. That’s an intriguing first line! I love stories about our Native Americans so this has been added to my to-read list!

    I’m featuring “All This Time” by Melissa Tagg on the blog today, but for here, I’ll share my first line from Hometown Girl by Courtney Walsh. It’s one of the three books I’m currently reading and I’m loving it so far.

    “Beth Whitaker hated flowers.”

    Happy Weekend!

  6. My first line is : from an Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter.
    The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soo. Leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.
    Lots of good books represented here!
