  1. Such a pretty cover! 🙂

    I’m sharing Beyond the Ashes by Karen Barnett over on my blog, so here I’ll share my favorite line from a book I recently enjoyed, The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin:

    Did he really stand by me if he didn’t love all of me, if he wanted me to lock up my passions, dreams, and hopes – my gift – and be what he wanted me to be instead?

  2. That’s a pretty cover. 😍

    I’m sharing Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows’ “My Plain Jane” on my blog today, which I read a couple of weeks ago, so I’m going to share this line instead from an anthology I’m currently reading, “A Thousand Beginnings and Endings” edited by Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman.

    “Do not trust the fruit of Maria Makiling.”

    Have a great weekend! 😀

  3. Thanks for another fun post Trisha! Here’s my first line from My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray “The promise of liberty is not written in blood or engraved in stone; it’s embroidered into the fabric of our nation.”

  4. Happy Friday!

    Among The Poppies is on my wish list. There is not a lot of historical romances that focus on World War I.

    My FLF this week on my blog is Love in the Balance by Regina Jennings. I’m also reading Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer.

    Cisco, Texas – April 1883
    “Tonight is the night. She could feel it.”

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I do love a good WWI novel! I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:

    “A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”

    And on that cheerful note, happy Friday!

  6. My FLF is from A Defense of Honor by Kristi Hunter:
    London 1816
    Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brooke’s and White’s , was bored.
    Let me tell you , this book is never boring! Kristi has captivated again!
    Love Caryl’s choice!

  7. Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.

    “Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lexi Blake’s new release “Order of Protection” on my blog. Check out to see the start of her newest series!

The first line is “Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge Fencing Team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brooke’s and White’s, was bored.”

    The Book I’m sharing on my blog is Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan but I’m currently listening to The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and I’ll share the first line from that here: “We slept in what had once been the gymnasium.” Happy reading this weekend! 🙂
