    What a precious cover! Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray is featured on my blog today with a giveaway but I’m currently reading The Vexing by Tamara Leigh. Here’s the first line:
    Normandy, France
    Early December 1161
    Women were more trouble than they were worth. Or so Sir Durand Marshal told himself each time one dragged him into a mess like this one promised to do.

    1. That first line was so interesting that I hopped over to Amazon to read what the book is about. Great choice! Thanks for sharing it.

    That looks like a good book! I love the Love Inspired books!
    I’m sharing the first line from The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from the book I’m currently reading here. “If you’re willing to admit it, you probably know me as Raine de Bourgh.” The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner.

    A lovely cover – and what sounds like a fun twist on a popular romance theme!

    I’m sharing from Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman over on my blog today. But I’m currently reading Piercehaven by Robin Merrill, which is kind of a girls basketball version of Friday Night Lights, except set on an island off the coast of Maine. Here’s the first line:

    She had expected it to be a poetic voyage. She had expected sunshine and whitecaps, a sea song to serenade her as she sailed toward her new home.

    I have heard of Mail Order Bride but never Mail Order Mommy; however, I suppose they are one in the same. I love this series of books, so I will have to pick this one up. Happy Saturday!

  5. Sounds like story to tug on your heartstrings. I’ll have to add this to my #TBR as it sounds quite enjoyable.
