He was the nephew of a governor and statesman and the grandson of a pirate who sailed with the infamous Jean Lafitte, but tonight Claiborne William Andre Gentry was merely one of the many anonymous souls who walked along Magazine Street in the Vieux Carre.


I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing this book for Hope By The Book magazine‘s online bonus content. I especially loved the subtle connections to The Pirate Bride.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Yesterday’s Promises” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Danica Callaghan sank down on the lowest of the wide, built-in, carpeted risers and surveyed her handiwork.”


  3. My first lines are from When You Look At Me by Pepper Basham:

    Chapter Six:

    The mountains carried thier own song. A melody beginning with soft brass, perhaps a stray violin solo- or even more accurate to the history of these hills- an Irish flute, grew in his thoughts to a full orchestral explosion as vast as the blue horizon.

    Am looking forward to The Alamo Bride! I have most of this Collection.


  4. I have so enjoyed the books in this collection. I can’t wait to get to read this one also! I hope you have a nice weekend, Beth!


  5. Happy Friday! On my blog, I am featuring a book by J. Stephen Lang, The Christian History Devotional. Here, will share a couple lines from the chapter I’m currently on. “1731: One of the world’s most famous books happens to be a Christian book, though most people think of it as an adventure story. It is Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, published in 1719.” I wish you a wonderful weekend.


  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers today, here are the lines that follow:

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    Hope you have a good weekend.


  7. I recently read this one as well and actually read (and finished) The Golden Bride last night. I’m waiting until closer to launch to share my reviews but I sincerely hope they end up adding more books to the series!

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I’m currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
