True Nobility | The Friday 56 & First Line Friday

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

A historical romance, accompanied by plenty of danger, True Nobility is a book I intend to pick up very soon.

(I'll be featuring this book on Instagram today, too, with a great giveaway, so be sure to check it out.)

First Line: Moonlight fell through an open casement as a rising shadow crept closer to the bed.

From Page 56: It occurred to her that her association with Nicholas Saberton had finally come to an end. She'd likely never see him again. Never be drawn by his mesmerizing gaze one minute, or spurned by his cool indifference the next.


Left alone in an unfamiliar land where her noble title is of no importance. Everything she believes in crumbles, nothing is as it seems. Driven by desperation, she risks it all to return to the one man whose love remains true. 

When Lady Victoria Haverwood, beloved daughter of a prominent English earl, becomes the target of a murderous plot, her idyllic world is swiftly turned upside down. 

Nicholas Saberton, an accomplished American Naval Captain, is commissioned to escort them safely across the ocean to the shores of Savannah, Georgia. Pledged to protect her with his life, Nicholas is determined to resist her innocent charm and remain focused on building his shipping empire.

Danger shadows them and before long Victoria is thrown into a web of deception that threatens to consume her, age-old secrets destroy all she believes in. Her only hope is to trust the relentless leading of her heart.

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.
And be sure to stop by Hoarding Books and Freda's Voice for a peek into other books.


  1. This book sounds really good!! I'm adding it to my #TBR!

  2. I love the sound of this one! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE MAKING OF US”

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Falling for Grace" by Janet W. Ferguson:

    "It was finally over."

    Because I am reading it on my kindle, there are no page numbers on this one (sometimes there are). The closest to 56 I can get is Loc 56:

    "Brooklyn Barlow, the head of Roundtree Group and top lobbyist in Georgia, had lived through difficult times and had become a great support through Grace's personal disaster."

  4. I love that cover! I do love a good historical mystery mixed in with romance. I hope you love this one. Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Love the cover and this dress! Happy reading Hallie!

  6. Sounds like a good one! Happy weekend!

  7. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: "'I believe.' Dowland said with all the conviction and soul he could muster." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  8. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first line from Death in the Stocks by Georgette Heyer on my blog today. Here is the second line:

    “No lamp shone in the window but a full moon sailed in a sky the colour of sapphires, and lit the village with a pale light, as cold as the sheen on steel.”

  9. I pre-ordered this one, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Sounds good!

    I'm featuring "The Seamstress" by Allison Pittman on my blog, but I've just started reading "Atoning for Ashes" by Kaitlin Covel, so I'll share that first line here:

    Josie had always detested black.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. My first lines are from A Return of Devotion by Kristi Hunter

    Marlborough, England. 1816

    She should have been prepared. After all, she’d had two months to imagine this moment. In truth she’d done little else besides imagine all the possible scenarios, each one worse than the last.
    But she hadn’t imagined this.
