First Line Fridays: The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep:

"Was it wicked to say goodbye with a smile?"

Have you read this book?

I loved, loved, loved The Noble Guardian and you can read my review of this novel here.

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

A Cross-Country Trip through Regency England Brings Intrigue, Rogues, and High Adventure.

The must-read conclusion to Michelle Griep’s Bow Street Runners Trilogy: Life couldn’t be better for Abigail Gilbert—but it’s been a long time coming. Having lived with a family who hated her, love is finally within reach. Abby sets off on a journey across England to marry one of the most prestigious gentleman bachelors in the land—until highwaymen upset her plans and threaten her life.

Horse patrol captain Samuel Thatcher arrives just in time to save Abby. But to him she’s simply another victim in a job he’s come to despise. Tired of the dark side of humanity, he intends to buy land and retire.

Abby pleads with him to escort her on the rest of her journey. He refuses until she offers him the thing he desperately needs to achieve his goal: money. Delivering her safely will earn him more than enough to settle into a quiet life.

So begins an impossible trek for the cynical lawman and the proper lady. Each will be indelibly changed by the time they reach her betrothed, if they don’t kill one another first—or fall in love.

  1. I shared from Amanda Barratt's My Dearest Dietrich on my blog. Here is the first line from Outbreak by Davis Bunn -- "Avery Madison was awakened at eleven minutes past midnight by a most unexpected call."

    1. Someone was just telling me about Outbreak last night. Enjoy!

  2. I love Griep's book! Happy Friday Jolene!

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I'm just getting into Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham so I'll share the first line from that book here: "After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellow papers closer and pressed her lips to them." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of reading time!

  4. Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Until Then (Women of the Heartland Book 5)" by Gail Kittleson:

    "Sent Jerry packin', didn't we?"

  5. I haven't read the first two books in this series, but that first line is enough to get me interested!

    Today I’m sharing from Entanglements by Rachel McMillan on my blog, one of the novellas in Finding Ever After. Here’s the first line from the next story in the collection, Twice Upon a Time by Ashley Clark:

    “Under no circumstances would she fall for him again.”

  6. I read the Noble Guardian and really enjoyed it!
