First Line Friday — In Search of A Prince

25 Feb

Happy Friday! This week I am excited to feature Toni Shiloh‘s new book, In Search of A Prince. I have heard wonderful things about this fairytale romance and can’t wait to read it! I think fans of Rachel Hauck’s Royal Wedding series will love it. Check out all the details below.

And now the first line:

“Your Majesty, I am afraid the news is not good.”

It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything. 

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha’s Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell–Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?

    I’ll be reading Toni’s book soon.
    My first lines come from The Element of Love by Mary Connealy.
    May 1872. Northern California
    They were running away from the threat of misery, pain, and degradation.
    And running straight toward danger. Deadly danger.
