First Line Friday – 12.07.18

first-line-friday-3

Hi Everyone! It’s First Line Friday, so grab a book near you and share your first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first lines from A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter. I recently enjoyed the audible version of this book and, although it definitely reads as a stand-alone, I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the Haven Manor series. Fun and unique, this is a story that sticks with you.

A Defense of Honor

Here is the first line:

Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brooke’s and White’s, was bored.

When Katherine “Kit” FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she’s forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend’s missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she’s telling.

After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can’t matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. And as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, revealing the truth isn’t worth putting him and everyone she loves in danger.

  1. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth………

    I am folding laundry at my dining room table when the police car pulls up. There’s no fanfare— no sirens or flashing lights— yet that little niggle starts in the pit of my stomach, Mother Nature’s warning that all is not well.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm! Happy reading!😊📚💕

    On my blog, I’m sharing the first couple of lines from Silent Days, Holy Night by Phyllis Clark Nichols. I’m just starting chapter 2 now, so I’ll post the first lines from there.

    “‘Since I can’t go to Grancie’s today, could I go tomorrow?’ I didn’t think Dad was looking, so I took another sugar cube and stirred it into my tea.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚
