First Line Friday – 5.5.17


Have you read any great books lately? Well grab one and share the first line with me!

It’s first line Friday and today I’m sharing the first line from Fire and Ice by Mary Connealy. It’s the third book in the Wild At Heart series which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Mary’s books are my go-to choice for fun adventures in the wild west.

Fire and Ice

Here’s the first line:

October 10, 1866
The bullet spit dirt up in Gage Coulter’s eyes, and he didn’t even flinch.

And it just gets better from there! 😀 The rivalry and chemistry between the hero and heroine in this one had me laughing out loud and cheering them on. A fitting end to this entertaining series.

Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

  1. Sounds like a fun read!

    I have the first line of Tosca Lee’s ‘Firstborn’ on my blog today, but here I’m going to share the first line of “Wings of the Wind” by Connilyn Cossette:

    “Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, I’d never felt more alone.”

  2. I enjoy reading Mary’s books also! On my page I’m sharing the first line from Such a Hope by Sondra Kraak. However, here I’m going to share the first line of book on my TBR stack; “The Miracle of the Seventh-day Ox” by Bradley Booth: “Nickolia Panchuk stared at the four walls of the jail cell around him. The cold gray concrete made him feel as if he were in a tomb–cold and frightened and alone.”

  3. My first line comes from an advance read of a book that will have a permanent home on my “favorite books” shelf. THE ASTONISHING THING by Sandi Ward releases in November. It’s so clever and touching…told from the point of view of a cat, Boo, who is trying to solve the disappearance of her human mom and help her family heal. So, so sweet! “Let me tell you about my mother.” (Mainstream with references to faith, 99% clean)

    “Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn’t all fun and games.”

    1. It is a fun series.
      Hmm if they are having to jockey for position, they must be in a crowded city. And in a hurry. Yet this man, though clearly anxious, doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere. Intriguing. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Ooh. Great first line!

    Last night was my brother’s college graduation, so while I was waiting for the 200+ students before him to get their diplomas, I read “Love at First Bark” (Dana Mentink). It was short and amusing. 🙂 The first line…er…paragraph… was great…

    “Marcy Deveraux was surprised to discover she didn’t actually miss the prince very much. The naked truth was, he’d been high maintenance with all that dark broodiness and not much of a sense of humor to speak of. By the end of their time together, he’d even gotten on her nerves just the tiniest bit. Still, Prince Rafe’s departure left her at a loss. It was not as though His Royal Highness was required to save anyone else from assassination, and it had been twelves months since that perilous jungle crossing, complete with poisonous spiders and the one-eyed bandit. The prince had survive more adventures than could be expected of anyone, fictional or not, and he deserved his happy ending.
    So now what?
    Marcy chewed her pencil eraser, staring at the blank pages of her notebook as the summer wind rattled the cabin windows.”
