First Lines … ‘Hope’s Betrayal’ by Grace Elliot


Captain George Huntley could think of many ways to spend a bitter winter’s night, but lying belly down on wet sand was not one of them.

“The devious bastards will land tonight I know it.”

The officer beside him stirred and shook the feeling back into numb hands.

“It’s late, almost high tide, Captain.”

Huntley scowled. “Not losing heart now, Bennett?”

“Of course not.”


This is the second installment of ‘The Huntley Trilogy’, with the first book ‘Eulogy’s Secret’, still enjoying great success for its author Grace Elliot.



Would the first few lines of your book make you want to read on?

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
