"Hello, beautiful. Will you marry me?"

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

Happy reading!

About the Book:

Always close, but never a bride.
Longing to find true love, Kate Millington arrives in British Columbia on a bride ship. With countless men waiting to snag a bride, Kate has no trouble getting engaged. It’s staying engaged that’s the problem. After traveling to the remote mining town of Williamsville to marry her newest fiancé, she finds herself single again.
As the prosperous owner of a gold mine, Zeke Hart has everything he’s ever wanted except for a wife. At Kate’s arrival, he takes it upon himself to protect his childhood friend from the men clamoring to court her. The more he renews her friendship, the more he wants to win her for himself. But as much as Kate admires Zeke, she’s resolved not to marry someone who doesn’t share her faith.
When Zeke begins receiving anonymous threats, he unwittingly puts them both in grave danger. In the midst of peril, the past rises up to haunt them both, and Zeke realizes the fight for Kate’s affection may be his biggest challenge yet.

  1. I'm currently reading the second novella in The Kissing Tree which is by Karen Witemeyer. The first line of that novella is "Illogical business proposals made Barnabas Ackerly's skin itch, but this one irritated like a hundred mosquito bites treated with a poison ivy poultice."

    1. I have The Kissing Tree in my TBR stack! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday! I'm sharing the first line from The Lady and the Highwayman by Sarah M. Eden over on my blog today. I'm enjoying it very much. Here's a line from the chapter I'm currently on:
    "Elizabeth decided to forebear late-night visitors."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

  4. I haven't read any of Jody Hedlund's books, but this sounds like a good one! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I’m sharing the first line of chapter 19 of The Love Note by Joanna Politano:
    If I should happen to fall in love, the outcome of such a plight depends, like any big fall, on who is there to catch me.
