It’s First Line Friday again! 🙂
Earlier this week I went to a Facebook party for the release of Kristi Ann Hunter’s latest novel, An Uncommon Courtship. Regency romance was one of my first loves in fiction (I have a shelf full of Georgette Heyer!) but my reading in the genre has dropped off in recent years – in large part because there are so many other great genres and books! But as I got caught up in all the Facebook fun, I thought, “Hang on a minute. I think I have one of Kristi’s books on my iPad…”
And now I’m remembering why I love Regency romance so much!
So, my first line this week is taken from the first in Kristi Ann’s Hawthorne House series, 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.”
Incidentally, now is the perfect time to pick up a copy of this book if you’re an eBook reader, because it’s on a super sale!
Don’t forget to share your first line below, and then hop on over to visit my friends and share with them too! We love to know what you’re reading 🙂
