Friday Firsts: Pirate of my Heart

Friday Firsts is a meme, hosted by Allison from The first line can make or break a reader’s interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy.
  • Grab the book you are currently reading and open to the first page.

  • Write down the first sentence in the first paragraph. (If you want to use 2-3 sentences, that is okay but limit it to the very beginning.)

  • Create a blog post with this information. (Make sure to include the title & author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)

  • Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?

  • Come back to this blog post, hosted on and add your comment to the post.

Here is my Friday Firsts:

Pirate of My Heart: A Novel

"The grey clouds of dawn shivered against the paned glass of the castle, shrouding the three figures at the side of the four-poster bed in an eerie light."
Pirate of My Heart: A Novel

I am about halfway through this book and am absolutely loving it! The first sentence helped to draw me in, but it was after reading the first two paragraphs that I was hooked. I can't wait to finish this book and at the same time I don't want the story to end - it's so good!

Synopsis (from
When her doting father dies, Lady Kendra Townsend is given a choice: marry the horrid man of her cold, money-grubbing uncle's choosing or leave England to risk a new life in America with unknown relatives. Armed with the faith that God has a plan for her, Kendra boards a cargo ship and meets American sea captain Dorian Colburn. But the captain has been wounded by a woman before and guards his independent life. A swashbuckling man doesn't need an English heiress to make him slow down, feel again, or be challenged with questions about his faith-or so he thinks. It is not until Dorian must save Kendra from the dark forces surrounding her that he decides she may be worth the risk.
