First Line Fridays #8: The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delamere

Another week come and gone, and I am starting to catch up thanks to audiobooks and fitting in some more reading time. I am including this week a Victorian historical Romance that just seems to get being pushed back and back on my to read list, but I intend to get around to it next.  
Got it from Netgalley way back in March. I'm terrible when it comes to British Fiction, I sometimes go a little click-crazy on the site requesting anything like that from the major Christian Publishers, especially if its a new author or a series I already liked the previous books in.

 The Captain's Daughter: London Beginnings #1

The First Line: 

Dartmoor Coast, England, 1873

  "I'm not surprised to find you here" Rosalyn Bernay said, wrapping an arm around her sister's waist".  

Remember to check out what the other members of this group are reading on their own websites. Until next time, have a great weekend and happy reading, with love from England.

Introducing another new member this week: Ellie Harriger whose blog is Sprinkles and Pink


  1. I'll be interested in your review of The Captain's Daughter, as it wasn't my cup of tea.

    Today I'm stepping outside my comfort zone and sharing from Unblemished by Sara Ella:

    This is all my fault.
    She'll lose her soul because of me.

    Now I want to keep reading.

  2. I didn't mind this one. I'll be interested to see what you think.

    I’m featuring Nicole Deese’s new book, “A New Shade of Summer” on my blog this week, but I’ve FINALLY managed to get around to reading Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”, and I almost didn’t even want to put it down to do the First Line Friday rounds! But I’ve forced myself to share the first line:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

  3. On my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from a book I just finished. The Case of the Clobbered Cad. It was a fun story to read.
    I'll share here the first line from a book my son is currently reading.
    Tree Tall and the Whiteskins by Shirlee Evans
    "Tree Tall crept through the high dew-damp grass along the creek bank. It was early. The sun was not yet over the hill."

  4. Sounds like an interesting story.

    Come to a turable mountain that tried us almost to death to git over it. -WILLIAM CALK, HIS JURNAL MARCH YE 25TH 1775 SATTERDAY

    APRIL 1777

    What cannot be cured must be endured. A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

  5. My first line on my blog is from Colleen Coble. But I grabbed a book beside me for here.
    "He'd found her." by The Texan's Courtship Lessons by Noelle Marchand. My mom gave this book to me and I haven't read it yet.

  6. Loved this book! Can't wait for the second book in this series to come out...next March I believe. :) Happy Friday!

  7. Happy Friday!!

    My first line is from For Such a Moment by Marie Wells Coutu:

    “Ellen Nielson scanned the large office, seeking a secret corner where she could escape.”

  8. I very much want to read this book!!! I need more time to read.

    My quote comes from The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachel Anderson. This is book #3 in series. I highly recommend all three novels!

    "'How dreadful it would be to live on one's own permanently,' Lady Harriet Cavendish said to no one in particular as she walked through a thick grove of pines in Askern, Yorkshire."

  9. Once I got past the 'Dartmoor Coast' gaffe I REALLY enjoyed The Captain's Daughter and I'm really looking forward to the next in the series The Heart's Appeal.

    1. Oh of course, Dartmoor is not on the coast. I should know that as I have been there several times, but I just did not notice this Gaffe until you pointed it out. I notice Gaffes in Medieval Fiction really quickly, but small geogrpahical ones like this tend to get past me.
