TheWhiteCity (TrueColors)

Chicago, July 1893

          Winnifred Wylde concentrated on his forehead, nodding, trying to respond appropriately, but it was so difficult with his nose hair escaping and retreating into his left nostril with every breath.

 

Yuck! The first line makes my stomach turn! Ladies, this is not the kind of suitor you’d want your spinster aunt trying to set you up with now, is it?

Is the active nose hair his only flaw? Will Winnifred find an escape? Or will she be forced to endure further outings with this latest suitor?

First Line Fridays: The Alamo Bride

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

Today I’m excited to be featuring The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo. I’m starting this book this weekend, and I just know that it’s going to be a wonderful story to enjoy this weekend. What is next up on your #TBR?

thealamobride

New Orleans, Louisiana
October 12, 1835

          He was the nephew of a governor and statesman and the grandson of a pirate who sailed with the infamous Jean Lafitte, but tonight Claiborne William Andre Gentry was merely one of the many anonymous souls who walked among Magazine Street in the Vieux Carre. Back in Tennessee, his sisters had teased him about the dark hair that was so different from their blond braids and yet so similar to the pirate whose name was forbidden in their home. Here in New Orleans, Clay’s resemblance to the grandfather his family never spoke of had caused him to fit in rather than look out of place. And when a man was carrying a secret on behalf of the president of the United States, looking out of place was not the goal.

 

Okay, so I did give you more than just one line. I just couldn’t stop at the first line!  Makes me curious to find out what secret Clay is carrying!

Clicking on the link below will take you to the Amazon page for this book so you too can find out what secret Clay is carrying!
