First Line Friday - Valentine's Day Edition

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Happy Friday!

In celebration of Valentine's Day I am sharing a line from ONE of my FAVORITE romance books of ALL time...Everything about this book touches my heart. The romance, the forgiveness, the redemption...*Sigh*...And #myDavid..."Heaven help me, you taste like Christmas."

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

The Thorn Keeper
Pepper D. Basham

"He chooses broken people to accomplish His will.
Not perfect people. He uses us as we are, where we are."


What is one of YOUR favorite romance reads?
Comment below with your First Line and then...

Head over to Hoarding Books to link up with your own FLF post! (Please keep it family 
friendly...Or note otherwise in the link up)


  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from You're The One That I Want by Susan May Warren, a book that needs to go to the top of my TBR pile. "No one died tonight, not if she could help it."

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today my First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading next week. A Mother's Gift by Charlotte Hubbard.

    As Lenore Otto sat on the bed with Leah, wistfully watching the dusk of late November fill her daughter’s room, her heart was torn.

    Have an awesome weekend!!

  3. Heaven only knows I should have brought back a tote sack full of beignets that day, like I’d planned, and NOT a sales flyer for the old Sweetwater mansion down the road.
    By Sandra Bretting

  4. This is one of my all time favorite books!! Have a wonderful weekend!! :)

  5. My first line is from Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer:
    The cheerful tinkle of a bell alerted Grace Mallory to the arrival of a guest.

    Happy reading!

  6. Oh, I do need to read some Pepper Basham!

    I’m sharing from the Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers Romance Collection (read through NetGalley) today. Here’s the first line from Partners in Crime by Vickie McDonough:

    “Run, Laurel. Run!”

  7. Prologue

    Vincentio Rossi lifted his glass of ten-year-old Lombardi Brunello di Montalcino, closed his eyes, and sniffed the complex bouquet of the ruby red wine. - Lethal Legacy by Irene Hannon

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading

  8. i adore the book, you, and your graphic! :D

    My current first line is from Missy Tippens’ new novella “Her Valentine Reunion” (in the Back to You collection) – "In a preemptive strike against the Valentine’s Day funk that hit her every year in February, Abbie Rogers had been working on her latest craft project she’d dubbed Operation Kill Cupid.”

  9. The book I’m featuring on my blog is Rumors and Promises by Kathleen Rouser. Since I’m on chapter 14, I’ll share the first line from that chapter here. “I insist that you stay here and rest today, Sophie.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. The audio is wonderful for this book!

    I know I’m late but yesterday was busy! Happy Weekend! My first line is from A Langhorne Romance (which is in Right Where We Belong collection) by Deborah Raney.

    “No sooner had Lily O’Neal plunged her hands into the sticky bread dough than the doorbell rang. Why did it always work that way?”
