First Line Friday: She Walks in Love by Marylu Tyndall

My first post for a few weeks. I have an excuse. Last week I was commuting and then staying with a relative.
Deciding which book to include today has been a bit difficult. I was going to do The Number of Love by Roseanna M White, but another person in this group has included that book.

So, I'm going to include another book which I have started reading on Kindle Unlimited. Its Marylu Tyndall's latest She Walks in Love, which is a Medieval Fantasy Romance.

I have to confess, I've haven't liked the novels I've read from this author before, but I thought I would give this one a try, especially since I borrowed it for free.

I don't much care for the quaint, pseudo archaic language used in the narration, and in the blurb (below the graphic) although I understand its used to try and make the story seem more ''authentic".

My First Line is from Chapter Eight  

 She must protect the Spear of Destiny at all costs
He must bring the lady safely home
But the powers of darkness chasing them have other ideas

Lady Cristiana D'Clere, the new protector of the Spear, is on the run from the steward of her estate, who has kept her drugged for years. All she ever wanted was to be safe, marry well, and raise a bevy of wee ones. Instead, she is far from home, chased by men intent on killing her and stealing the Spear of Christ for its incredible powers.

Sir Jarin the Just has never forgotten the woman who stirred his heart like no other. Determined to find and restore her to her proper place as Lady of Luxley Castle, he sets out on a journey fraught with more dangers than he ever could have foreseen. The biggest danger is to his heart, for he has vowed to remain unfettered and never surrender his freedom to a woman.

Though the Spear protects the couple along their journey, Cristiana must learn to trust the One whose blood stains the relic, while Jarin must learn to rely on powers far above his own knightly skills. For the dark magic that is chasing them may take all the powers of heaven to defeat.

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Edge of Truth" by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    "The hair on Kara Nelson's neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn't right."

  2. Happy Friday! I haven't been posting lately, either but today I'm sharing from The Crossing at Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman on my blog. I'm only a few pages in, and this is my favorite line so far:

    "Her stomach did a slow roll at the unexpected lilt of an Irish brogue."

  3. This book sounds intriguing!
