          Aven peered down at the letter again, noted the address written in Aunt Dorothe’s hand, then looked back to the wooded sign that was staked to the ground. The location matched, but with the Virginia summer sun overhead and the shores of Norway but a memory, she was suddenly having a hard time putting one foot in front of the other.

 

I couldn’t stop with just one line! I felt you needed two lines to really give you a good start! Has Aven found the correct address? What surprises lay in store?

          Condensation dripped from stone-hewn walls as Charles lowered himself down into the dry well, seeking the treasure his grandfather had tucked away just days before the Allies sacrificed the Sudetenland to Hitler’s death squad like a lamb to the slaughter. The rock walls and the earthy, wet smell reminded him of medieval dungeons and secret tunnels he had read about as a child, and of tales of adventures hunting treasure.

 

Ok, you caught me. I gave you two delicious lines. I couldn’t help myself!
What do you think? Will Charles find the treasure that his grandfather tucked away?

First Line Fridays: The Captured Bride

 

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

This week I’m featuring The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3) by Michelle Griep. This exciting story is scheduled to hit the shelves on June 1st and trust me you will want to snag a copy of this page-turning adventure! CLICK HERE to read my review.

This week I’m sharing a favorite line of mine instead of the first line. This story takes place Five years into the French and Indian War and starts out at Fort Wilderness upper New York, 1759

For more information about the Daughters of the Mayflower series see graphic and the web link at the end of this post. 

TheCapturedBride Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart.

Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought.   Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?
