Book Blind Date #13
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:
Blind Date #1
L**** is no ordinary single mother. With feathers in all the right places, she's one of the hottest showgirls in Vegas. Aside from a hot-tempered ex-boyfriend on her sequined tail, L****'s biggest problem is finding a decent babysitter for her son. L****'s dilemma is solved when she ropes H****, the casino's shy-but very smart and cute-accountant, into the task.
Inheriting his chemist father's high I.Q. and sexy good looks, H**** has always been intrigued by L****. He isn't thrilled at the prospect of babysitting, but he'll do anything to get near the gal who fuels his craziest fantasies. Then L****'s dangerous ex comes knocking. Their option? Run faster than a pair of net stockings.
In disguise and on the lam, L****'s masquerading as the perfect wife. H****'s doubling as the he-man protector. But with a set-up this hot, who's fooling who? When the lights go down, and the masks come off, a nerd like H**** could be just the right ignition to set a woman like L**** on fire.
Blind Date #2
CAUGHT BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE…
S****, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, G****, at Waterloo, she has married his best friend and heir, T****. S**** gives herself to him body and soul…until the day G**** returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands—and his wife.
TORN BETWEEN TWO HUSBANDS…
Now S**** must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be G****, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be T****, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, S**** finds herself immersed in a dangerous game—where the stakes are not only love…but life and death.
