Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.

This week I’m featuring The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3) by Michelle Griep. This exciting story is scheduled to hit the shelves on June 1st and trust me you will want to snag a copy of this page-turning adventure! CLICK HERE to read my review.

This week I’m sharing a favorite line of mine instead of the first line. This story takes place Five years into the French and Indian War and starts out at Fort Wilderness upper New York, 1759

For more information about the Daughters of the Mayflower series see graphic and the web link at the end of this post. 

TheCapturedBride Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart.

Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought.   Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?

  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My First Line comes from a book I’m reading now, The Ones We Choose by Julie Clark…..

    If loneliness were a color, it would be the deep purple of my eight year old’s shirt as he walks solitary laps around the school track.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚📚

  2. I’m so looking forward to this one! Have a few others to get through first!

    “‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.’” No, I’m not reading Pride and Prejudice (again), but am reading a retelling by Debra White Smith: First Impressions.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. This is on my must read list for June 😀 I’m sharing from L.M. Montgomery’s 1926 novel The Blue Castle on my blog, but I’ll share from my current read here – a novel set in the 1920’s, Ramble and Roar by Catie Cordero:

    “I wasn’t looking for death. It found me. That’s what I tell myself.”

    Happy Friday!

  6. Great first line. This book is a soon-to-be-read book for me. Can’t wait!

    Happy Friday!

    Today, I am showcasing Karen Barnett’s novel Where the Fire Falls (#2 in her Shadows of the Wilderness series) over on my blog. Here I will share the first lines from chapter 2.

    “Clark grunted as he jostled the bags under his arm and clambered up the stairs. At her disposal? First change he got, he’d be setting this little minx straight.”

    Have a great weekend!

  7. My favorites so far are the Kimberley Woodhouse books in the series, but I really love how they are doing the series through history and bringing different authors together for it!
    The book I’m sharing this week on my blog is Grace in Strange Disguise but here I’ll share from The Calling of Emily Evans by Janette Oke, which is the book I featured for my Memorable Monday post this week: “Emily Evans lifted a slender hand and pushed back a wisp of wayward brown hair.” Have a great weekend! 🙂

  8. I’m looking forward to this one! I’m currently reading Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett. Here are the first couple of lines from chapter 10…
    “Clark strode into the Glacier Point Hotel. A burning sensation simmered in his gut, like his best campfire stew straight from the pot.”


  9. I posted the first line from First Impressions by Debra White Smith on my blog today so I’ll leave the first line from chapter 21 here since that’s where I’m at. “The weeks rocked on.”

    I hope you have a nice weekend!
