First Line Fridays: On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White

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 line from On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White:

"A stranger stalking down the street shouldn't make her hands tremble in anticipation."

Have you read this book? Book blurb below and you can read my review here.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:

Against Every Warning, She's Drawn Ever Closer to the Man Known as "Black Heart"

All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster--a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the Admiralty's codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.

As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed "Black Heart," she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing--and some of her own to do as well.

With Camden's court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope--and to each other--if they want to survive.

    I really can't wait to read this one, as I've heard nothing but great things about it.

    My first line is from Take a Chance on Me by Becky Wade:

    "The hospital's electronic doors whooshed open as Penelope Quinn rushed toward the emergency room."

    Have a great weekend!

    Hope you have an excellent day and a great weekend. 🙂❤️📖

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Marry Me" by Autumn Macarthur:

    "The intercom on the hospital room wall beeped, interrupting Melanie and Alia's fast and furious clapping game and their storm of giggles."

    1. Thanks for sharing, Becky! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  5. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin today. Here is the first line from chapter 3:

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett but right now I'm reading Labeling Lincoln by Stephenia H McGee so I'll share the first line from chapter 2 here: George struggled to keep his composure as they led him deeper into the bowels of the prison."
