First Line Fridays - 1/13/17 - An Uncommon Courtship


Good morning and welcome to another edition of First Line Fridays!

I do hope that you are keeping warm in your part of the country (world), it barely creeped into the double digits (Fahrenheit)  today and doesn't look like it will be getting warmer anytime soon.

I am SO excited about this book! I JUST started it...and it is very hard to not disregard housework and meals. I just want to read! Watch for my review early next week!


Prologue
Hertfordshire, England - 1796
"Many a man has been inspired by a great father or a noble brother, and young six-year-old Lord Trent Hawthorne had been blessed with both."


Post your first line below and head over to see what First Lines my lovely friends have today!

Folks said Thomas Beaufort could track a housefly through a hurricane, and though he admitted that it might be a slight exaggeration, he felt it wasn’t too far off.

I just got this book in the mail! :) But I need to go back and read the other books in the series first I guess. :)

Here is my first line:

Kit Kat and Lucy by Lonnie Hull DuPont

You will always by lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats. Colonial American Proverb

"To say moving from San Francisco to rural Michigan was not easy for me would be an understatement."

Happy reading and Happy Friday!

"They share the truth of an experience that only those who were there can truly know. As part of a regiment of southwestern cowpunchers, Oklahoma Indians, Ivy League football stars, and champion polo players, they had faced death boldly and defeated the enemy.

They had been Rough Riders."

Rough Riders: Theodore Roosevelt, His Cowboy Regiment, and the Immortal Charge Up San Juan Hill by Mark Lee Gardner.

Happy Friday!!!

Sam wouldn't lose another kid on his watch.

I have plenty of heat to spare over here in Australia! You may have barely made it into the double digits, but we made it into the triple figures this week! (If you're speaking in Fahrenheit).

I'm going to turn this into a Kristi Ann Hunter fest, and share the first line from 'A Noble Masquerade':

“It is never a happy day when an eight-year-old girl's cheesecake lands in the dirt, and she certainly doesn't take kindly to the laughing little boy who put it there.”

I can't wait to get into the rest of the series!

Rachel said...

Oh this is such a good series!

Rachel said...

Ooooh!

Rachel said...

Ooooh Happy Friday...OK it is Sunday now haha! HAPPY READING!!!

Rachel said...

I am almost done with it now! You are probably finished already haha!

Rachel said...

Gah! You will LOVE An Elegant Facade!

Rachel said...

Eeeee....Triple digits is not my favorite either! But we get up that high in July/August here too. Yay for Kristi's books!
