Happy Friday!

This week the book I’m featuring is:


Amazon | Goodreads

England, Midnight, 2 February, 1860

Moonlight fell through an open casement as a rising shadow crept closer to the bed.

I will be taking part in a social media blitz for this book next week and I’m excited for the chance to read it. I just got my hands on my copy today so I’ll hopefully be digging into it very soon!

About the Book:

Left alone in an unfamiliar land where her noble title is of no importance. Everything she believes in crumbles, nothing is as it seems. Driven by desperation, she risks it all to return to the one man whose love remains true.

When Lady Victoria Haverwood, beloved daughter of a prominent English earl, becomes the target of a murderous plot, her idyllic world is swiftly turned upside down.

Nicholas Saberton, an accomplished American Naval Captain, is commissioned to escort them safely across the ocean to the shores of Savannah, Georgia. Pledged to protect her with his life, Nicholas is determined to resist her innocent charm and remain focused on building his shipping empire.

Danger shadows them and before long Victoria is thrown into a web of deception that threatens to consume her, age-old secrets destroy all she believes in. Her only hope is to trust the relentless leading of her heart.

About the Author:Lori Bates Wright

Lori is a child of the Southwest. Raised in New Mexico, she now lives in Texas with her husband of 34 years. When she’s not writing, you can find her by a lake in the mountains, watching her four grandsons play and sipping coffee. Her family is truly the heart of who she is.

Now it’s your turn!

  1. Happy first Friday of February 💕

    I shared the first few lines of Tara Conklin’s upcoming novel “The Last Romantics” on my blog today. I am only about 47% into the book so, here, I’ll share to you the first lines of the chapter I’m currently on.

    “With Will gone I searched in earnest for Noni, worrying that she had seen us speaking and that I would be forced to explain. Noni did not recognize boundaries when it came to us, her daughters, our skin problems or boyfriends or job prospects. Her questions were always frank and pointed, designed to elicit answers that contained enough salient information for her critique. Dodging Noni’s questions had become a sport for my sisters and me, a verbal tennis match with Noni always retaining the serve. I could only imagine what she’d do with Will and the kiss he’d delivered.”

    I hope you enjoy those lines. Have a weekend full of great reads! 😀

  2. Pretty cover; great line! Here’s the first line from Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green — “I told you, I’m not staying.” Have a great weekend!

  3. I’m looking forward to reading this one too!

    I’m currently reading The Secret of Willow Inn by Pat Nichols. Here’s the first line: As far back as Emily Hayes could remember, her heart yearned for a sister.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from The Christmas Remedy by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall. It’s a sweet little book if you haven’t read it yet. I’m currently starting The Seamstress by Allison Pittman, so I’ll share the first line from this book.

    “My first and last memories are my cousin Laurette.”

    I’m very excited to read this book!

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

  5. Sounds like a great read! On my blog, I’m sharing a book by the late Ruth Bell Graham called Prodigals and Those Who Love Them. Here, I will share a line from Chapter 5 of that book, which is Gigi Graham Tchividjian’s story. “At times the Lord had to gently remind me to deal with my son as He deals with His children: to keep the doors of communication always open, to accept the person, even when I could not accept his actions and conduct.” I wish you a warm and wonderful weekend!

    Such a beautiful cover! I enjoyed the book as well 🙂

    I’m sharing the first line of Maybe It’s You by Christy Hayes on my blog, but I’m currently reading The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers, so I’ll share that first line:

    Roman Valesco climbed the fire escape and swung over the wall onto the flat roof.

    Happy reading!

    Happy Weekend! My first line (well, first 2 lines) is from “Ellie’s Redemption” by Molly Jebber:

    “Ellie Graber glanced at Joel Wenger across the room. Her heart raced, and her cheeks warmed.”
