First Line Fridays # 51 – Love on Assignment by Cara Lynn James

Hi Readers, Happy Friday!

Hope you are all staying warm with this freezing cold and wet weather we are having; however, in my opinion, this the perfect weather for a cup of hot chocolate (or tea), a book and a warm spot in front of the fireplace. Well, if you are in need of a good book, here’s a book for you to check out.

So without further ado, my First Line Friday book is Love on Assignment by Cara Lynn James

Charlotte Hale’s legs, hidden beneath her long serge skirt, wobbled like a newborn colt’s.

First line of Love on Assignment by Cara Lynn James

From the Back Cover

The chance to break the big story is all Charlotte needs to secure her future. But when the truth comes out–it may cost her the love of her life.

Newport, Rhode Island, in 1900–a glamorous resort town where the rich and famous go to see and be seen.

Charlotte Hale isn’t part of that world. She’s a working girl, a secretary for a local newspaper, who dreams of becoming a real reporter. When her boss offers her an assignment, she jumps at the opportunity. She’ll go undercover as a governess to investigate a scandal about her new employer, Daniel Wilmont, a young widowed professor of religion who writes a controversial column in a rival newspaper.

Charlotte’s qualms about misrepresenting herself to Daniel soon morph into a deeper quandry. How can she get the goods on a man who turns out to be so honorable? How can she plot the downfall of a family that has inspired her to rediscover her faith? And how can she protect the man she now loves from a scheme she’s been part of since the beginning?

  1. Looks great. I love historicals!

    My first line comes from Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna White:
    Savannah, Georgia May 1861
    Cordeliia Owens had dreamed of this day a hundred times. This moment. This story just waiting to happen
