First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: Almost Midnight

First Chapter First Paragraph

Today I’m participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, in which bloggers share a bit about a book they’re reading or planning to read soon.

18984488Chapter 1

You’ll find your soulmate, honey. At the stroke of midnight, on a mountain road, when all seems lost, he’ll come like a knight on his white horse.

Twenty-eight-year-old Hannah Elliot dropped her head to the steering wheel of her old two-door coupe as she thought about her mother’s dream. Okay, it was almost midnight, and her car had just died on a mountain road. That part was right. But soulmate? Knight on a white horse? Nope, she didn’t think so. Things like that didn’t happen in the twenty-first century in the middle of Colorado.

With a moan, she lifted her gaze and stared straight ahead as a cool June breeze rustled through the nearby pines. Shadows danced in the moonlight, giving the place an almost magical charm. She had to admit, a knight on a white horse who knew something about cars would look pretty good right now.

Her cell phone was dead. She was going to charge it last night, but of course, she had loaned the recharger to a neighbor a few days ago, and it had never been returned. Besides, the cell reception didn’t work too well on these mountain roads anyway.


In this clean contemporary romance, the descendants from THE CLEARBROOKS (the author’s historical series set in Regency England) are now settled in modern-day Colorado.

Widower and millionaire Tanner Clearbrook is livid when his matchmaking father secretly hires beautiful Hannah Elliot as tutor to his young son. However, the couple want nothing to do with each other, that is, until one little boy brings them together. But can their love survive a shattering secret?

Would you keep reading?

  1. Oh, this sounds cute. Might be just the ticket one day when I’m needing a sweet story. Yes, I’d keep reading. I want to know who or how her ‘white knight’ shows up! LOL
