I’ve watched several bloggers put up their First Line Friday posts for a while now, wondering how they connected to do that. Well, turns out the lovely ladies over at Hoarding Books Blog have made it easy. This week, they are opening up FLF to anyone who would like to participate. If you join in the fun, be sure and link your post over at the Hoarding Books Blog.
Without further ado, here is my first First Line!
“The amount of female attention her brother garnered never failed to amaze Lucy.”
About the Book
Lucy Drake’s mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming.
Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin’s connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they’re wading into will take them.
