Book Blind Date #8
Book Blind Date is something that Danielle from Book Whore Blog and I decided to start after seeing a Facebook post on the Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in.
Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names and identifying phrases are removed just to make things fair. The only rule is: No Googling the synopsis, you have to pick a "date" based on what you read below.
So take part in the Book Blind Date and link up your blog! We'll be stopping by some of your blogs to check out your blind dates ;)
Last Week's Blind Dates: Taste by Kate Evangelista and More Than Meets the Ink by Elle Aycart
Book Blind Date #1
Battered by the sea, ***** remembers nothing of his past, his ducal rank, nor of the shipwreck that almost claimed his life. However, he's delighted to hear that the golden-haired vision tending his wounds is his wife. *****'s name and face may not be familiar, but her touch, her warmth, feel deliciously right. . .
When ***** prayed for a way to deter a bullying suitor, she didn't imagine she'd find the answer washed ashore on a desolate beach. Convincing ***** that he is her husband is surprisingly easy. Resisting the temptation to act his wife, in every way, will prove anything but. And now a passion begun in fantasy has become dangerously real--and completely irresistible. . .
Book Blind Date #2
When his father announced his engagement to a gold-digger with a lying, scheming fourteen-year old daughter, seventeen-year old ***** left ***** Ranch and never looked back. Until the day he got the phone call that his father had died unexpectedly.***** lives with guilt every day but can't quite work up the courage to track down the son of the man who raised her as his own. When ***** shows up at his father’s funeral eleven years later-and a hell of a man to be reckoned with-he has no interest in her too-late apology. Worse, they’ve inherited half shares of the family ranch—but only if they work together to catch *****, the stallion a young ***** let escape and made sure ***** took the blame for.***** proposes a secret competition to the beautiful witch who stole his life: whoever catches the stallion first gets the ranch all to themselves. It sounds simple, but once they’re out on the range, tempers and passions flare in the Texas heat and nothing goes as either of them expects.
So who would you like to cuddle up with?
