Today I’m featuring, A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings. This book made my list of the Top Ten Historical Romance Novels I read in 2016.


Here’s the first line:

February 1865
Gratiot Street Prison
St. Louis, Missouri

“First, you’re going to write a good-bye letter to my sweetheart, and then you’re going to marry me.”

Talk about an attention grabber! This book made my list for a reason. If you haven’t read it already, I highly recommend it.

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