First Line Friday | The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Valerie Comer

Today I’m joining in the fun by sharing a book for First Line Friday. The deal is we pick up the nearest book (or in my case, the nearest device with an ebook in it) and quote the first line.

I’m sharing the first line from The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Valerie Comer. I’ve included the first paragraph below – an intriguing opening!

Spencer Haviland had prided himself on planning his life to the tiniest detail. Until two days ago.

The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage is a June 2019 new release. Here’s the book description:

Rivals form a marriage of convenience in this contemporary cowboy romance, but plan not to fall in love!

When Spencer Haviland receives registered mail from his great-uncle’s attorney, he figures he’ll sell his upcoming inheritance after the old man dies. After all, he’s anything but a cowboy. But when Spencer’s life suddenly unravels, he retreats to the rundown Montana ranch only to discover his cousin’s widow and child firmly entrenched.

The Rocking H is the most secure home Carmen Haviland has ever known until Spencer arrives, claiming to be Great-Uncle Howard’s heir. But with the attorney’s revelation that his client is considering bestowing the ranch to charity instead, Carmen reluctantly agrees to Spencer’s rash plan for the sake of her daughter.

Will a marriage of convenience offer them both what they seek, or will their vows become anything but convenient?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Pink Bonnet” by Liz Tolsma:

    “Momma, Momma, watch me.”

  2. My first line is from No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky. It came out a few days ago!
    London 1909
    Katie McAlister’s heart pounded a frantic beat as she gripped the rickety railing and rushed down the back stairs.
    Great historical book!

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first 2 lines from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 where I am now: “I found my father on the roof, on his knees.” It’s amazing so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time 🙂

  4. I read the first book in this series and really must read the rest – it’s a change from Valerie Comer’s usual settings, but I love it!

    I’m sharing the opening line from The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale over on my blog today, and I’m currently reading Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson. I clicked “buy” on the first line of the sample:

    “Book Fair. The very words of the sign filled Mellie with loathing. Book Fair indeed. More like Book Unfair.”

    Quirky, and it appeals to my sense of humour. I’m halfway through and loving it! Happy reading 🙂

  5. I’d never heard of this one before seeing you’d shared it, but it sounds like a really interesting read, and I’m definitely going to have to look it up!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. This one sounds wonderful! I don’t usually gravitate to contemporary romance, preferring historical, but I might make an exception. I’m sorry I’m so late this week in participating. Life has just been a bit crazy, but good. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!

    1. Hi Anneliese, No need to apologise. I live in Australia and only got around to commenting on Saturday afternoon my time, which I believe is late Friday evening or early Saturday morning US time. I hope you’ll have an opportunity to look up Valerie’s book. Enjoy your weekend. 🙂
