First Line Friday – 9 November 2018 – The Tory’s Daughter (Angela Couch)


Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! New releases don’t come much fresher than the one I have for you today. The Tory’s Daughter is the third book in Angela Couch’s Hearts at War series and it releases today!

~ About the Book ~

Burying his wife is the hardest thing Joseph Garnet has ever done—until he’s called to leave his young son and baby daughter to fight Iroquois raiders. When one of the marauders tries to steal his horse, the last thing he expects is to end up tussling with a female. The girl is wounded, leaving Joseph little choice but to haul her home to heal—an act that seems all too familiar.

Though Joseph doesn’t appear to remember her, Hannah Cunningham could never forget him. He rode with the mob that forced her two brothers into the Continental Army and drove her family from their home—all because of her father’s loyalties to The Crown. After five years with her mother’s tribe, the rebels and starvation have left her nothing but the driving need to find her brothers.

Compelled by a secret he’s held for far too long, Joseph agrees to help Hannah find what remains of her family. Though she begins to steal into his aching heart, he knows the truth will forever stand between them. Some things cannot be forgiven.

    My first line is from Stratagem by Robin Caroll:

    “ According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can’t open the doorunless her employee uses the key he got in the last room.”


  2. Michelle says:

    I have this in an ebook. I look forward to reading it.

    This week I am featuring the first sentence from `Swimming in the Deep End` (Christina Suzann Nelson)

    So here I’ll feature the first sentence from my next TBR book.

    `Someday I hope to write a book on the subject of “The End”. (Through My Father’s Eyes` by Franklin Graham)

    My first line comes from A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner:

    September 2011

    The length of floral-patterned challis rested on the cutting table like a bridal bouquet undone.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!!!

  4. That one sounds really good!

    Today is book launch day for my latest Regency novel, so I’m featuring it on First Line Friday on my blog. However, I am currently reading A Tale of Two Hearts by Michelle Griep. I will share from the third chapter, which is where I’m at. “It was a grisly kind of day.”

    Happy raining Friday!

    My first line is from The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep

    Dover, England 1808
    Numbers would be the death of Johanna Langley.

    Blessings, Tina


  7. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright but I’m currently reading A Light on a Hill by Connilyn Cossette so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (30) here: “Staying close to the narrow river that now barreled downhill through the valley toward Beit She’an, we kept within the trees as much as possible.” Hope you have a great weekend!


  8. I am crazy excited about this release! Just bought my copy tonight and it is waiting for me to hurry up and finish my FLF comments already! LOL Happy weekend!

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from Wait for Me by Susan May Warren:

    “He wasn’t looking for trouble, but if Pete didn’t act right now, at least one person was going to die.”


  10. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from An Unseemly Wife by E.B. Moore on my blog. Here is the first sentence from Chapter 6:

    “On and on, they rode alone through the woods, between the branches, a flaming sun setting thin clouds aglow, until one night the sky cleared to a deep black studded with uncountable white points.”


  11. Iola Goulton says:

    This title got me wondering: what’s a Tory (apart from someone who supports the UK Conservative Party). Apparently, the term originally meant “outlaw” which is funny, considering modern Tories are often seen as the traditionalists supporting God, King, and Country.

    Anyway, that’s beside the point! I’m sharing from Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears over on my blog, and I’m currently reading another in the same genre – The Lieutenant’s Bargain by Regina Jennings. Two great books from two great Christian Western romance writers! Here’s the first line from The Lieutenant’s Bargain:

    “If she’d known there were so few washrooms in Indian Territory, Hattie Walker wouldn’t have drunk three cups of coffee at breakfast that morning.”
