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

Today I am happy to be featuring Beholden (The Fairest Maidens #1) by Jody Hedlund. If you are a fan of page-turning stories that pull you and keep you turning pages late into the night, then this is the book for you! This Fairy Tale Romance is sure to delight.

I knelt before my father, King Christian. My two brothers did likewise on either side of me. “The time of testing has come.” The king’s voice resounded through the great hall which was filled to overflowing with nobility and commoners alike, vying to witness the fate of their princes.

Now it’s your turn!

  1. Gorgeous cover! Happy Friday! My first line is from “Without Proof” by Janet Sketchley:

  2. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I’m currently reading A Haven for Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason. It’s an excellent story! I’m just beginning chapter 21, so I’ll share from there.
    “I’m taking Sofia out for a while,” Darius said to his mother as they finished up the dishes.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚


  3. Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Farm Stand by Amy Clipston: “Salina Petersheim huffed as she pulled two wagons piled high with boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables across the parking lot at the Bird-in-Hand marketplace.” I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂


  4. My first line is from Chapter 6 of THE RED RIBBON by Pepper Basham:
    “What a horrible way to end a mighty fine kiss”
