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

Today I’m excited to be featuring The Lieutenant’s Bargain (Fort Reno #2) by Regina Jennings. While this book is the second in the Fort Reno series, you can easily pick it up and start reading and not feel lost. However, with that said, you don’t want to miss out on the other fun stories in this series! CLICK HERE to read my full review!


December 1885
Indian Territory

          If she’d know there were so few washrooms in Indian Territory, Hattie Walker wouldn’t have drunk three cups of coffee at breakfast that morning.


Oh, I have been there, well kinda… While I haven’t ridden in a stage coach, I can definitely understand the difficulty of being on a long car trip without any bathroom stops within sight, and a desperate need to find one!

This story is such an enjoyable, page-turning delight! You won’t want to miss out!!

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Through the Shadows” by Karen Barnett:

    “Elizabeth King held her fingers against the ivory keys, refusing to stir as the final chord faded and silence descended on the parlor.”

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first paragraph from A Bound Heart by Laura Frantz. I’m currently on chapter 12, so I’ll leave the first line from there.

    “Lark smiled as the long-awaited bairn made his entry into the rain-washed July day.”

    It’s such a good book!

    Hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend full of rest and good reading time! 😀❤📚


  3. Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

    My first lines come from Home For Christmas by Holly Chamberlin…..

    It was the eleventh of December, a crisp winter day with not a cloud in the sky to threaten rain or snow. Nell King shivered as she came down the stairs from the second floor and into the living room.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊🎆💕

  4. This one is on my TBR list. On my blog, I’m featuring The Christmas Bride. I know Christmas is over, but this book was really good, I just had to share it. It’s about the Moravian community that I knew next to nothing about. It’s a fascinating love story. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter 29 of that same novel. “Catherine heard the savage Indians long before she saw them.” I wish you a wonderful weekend to relax and read.


  5. Sorry I’m a bit late coming around this week again! On my blog I featured With This Pledge by Tamera Alexander but I’m currently reading The Teacher’s Bride by Kathleen Fuller so I’ll share that first line here: “I can’t believe she came here without letting us know ahead of time.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
