First Line Friday — Critical Alliance

1 Jul

Happy Friday! Elizabeth Goddard is one of my go-to, must-read romantic suspense authors. I am excited that her newest novel, Critical Alliance, book 3 in the Rocky Mountain Courage series, will be released in just a few days. (You can pre-order HERE.) It is definitely headed to the top of my Summer TBR pile!

Here’s the first line:

Her world was spinning out of control.

Mackenzie Hanson’s special set of skills opened the door to a successful career as a professor of cybersecurity at a Michigan university, allowing her to put her criminal past behind her. But when a long-ago partner in crime delivers a cryptic message about her father’s tech company being under cyberattack, she heads for Montana to secure exposed assets, close security breaches, and hopefully save lives.

Diplomatic Security Services special agent Alex Knight is back home in Montana to decompress from a mission gone wrong. But even as he’s trying to relax, he’s drawn into another mystery, complete with suspicious deaths, lethal threats, and whispers of espionage that all have one thing in common–a beautiful cybersecurity expert with a dark past.

When the situation turns deadly, Alex and Mackenzie will have to work together to find the answers they need–before someone silences Mackenzie for good.

USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard weaves a tangled web of nail-biting suspense and heart-stopping romance in this fast-paced conclusion to her Rocky Mountain Courage series.

    Hello!
    I’m just starting Where the Road Bends by Rachel Fordham. So far, I’m loving it!
    “A firm peck to his nose startled him from his rest. His eyes flew open. A rooster, red and large, hovered above him.”
    Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of relaxing reading time!

    I’m in the middle of Critical Alliance….. nail biter!

    My first line comes fro Hope Beyond the Waves by Heidi Chiavaroli.
    Osterville, Massachusetts April, 1993

    I stand rigid, arms pinned to m6 sides as my mother wraps me in a loose hug in Gram’s foyer.
