First Line Fridays: Between Two Shores

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

Today I’m excited to be featuring Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green. Resplendent in historical details this fully immersible story swept me off my feet, it captured my heart and didn’t let go. The details were so smoothly written and each one melded seamlessly to the next which only added more depth and emotion to the story. CLICK HERE to read my full review.

First Line Fridays: The Alamo Bride

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

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!

May 1940, France

Claire Baudin jittered with excitement as she checked her stocking seams. One final tweak to her new red straw hat and she slid out of the cramped ladies’ water closet. Tottering her way along the swaying railcar’s aisle, she bumped three elbows before falling into her seat.

 

Okay, so I gave you a little more than one line. I just couldn’t help myself! Trust me when I tell you that you won’t want to miss out on this fantastic story! This new story from J’nell Ciesielski comes out early February, but you can pre-order your copy today!

The Gentleman Smuggler’s Lady
Cornish Coast, 1815
When a prim and proper governess returns to England from abroad, she expects to comfort her dying father—not fall in love with a smuggler. Will Helen Fletcher keep Isaac Seaton’s unusual secret?

LadiesOfIntrigue

Port village of Treporth, Cornwall, England

Pretend I am courageous.
Pretend my heart still beats.
Pretend all manner of blissful things…
and that I shall find him alive.

Reaching a worn scrap of foolscap, Helen Fletcher tucked the paper into her valise, then snapped shut the clasp, wishing most of all she’d never received such horrid news. No one had ever warned her about the dangers of parchment.

          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!!
