A Rocky Mountain Heroes

For widow Kayla Bradshaw, restoring a historic Colorado hotel means a better life for her and her soon-to-arrive baby.

Working with Kayla, the police officer finds himself forgiving her—and longing to rebuild her shattered confidence. But can they trust each other enough to forge a future together?

    My first lines are from Deadly Intentions by Rachel Dylan.
    Chapter 2.

    The impact with the car’s air bag felt like a head-on collision with a train. Smoke filled the air. Fine dust settled around her. She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. The car rolled one more time, then settled upright.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Redemption Road” by Christa MacDonald:

    “The jingle of sleigh bells rang out as the door to the shop swung open.”

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt. I just finished A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m about to start The Healing Jar by Wanda Brunstetter so I’ll share that first line here: “Tears sprang to Lenore Lapp’s eyes as she stood with the others who had come to witness this special English wedding.” Happy reading!

    A great opening line! I’m wondering what’s gone wrong? 🙂

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson.

    The clash of cologne, sweat, and ego assaulted her senses as it did every weekday morning.
