Book Blind Date #18
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.
Last Week's Blind Dates:
Book Blind Date #1
Luck Be A Lady
Lord C*****’s reputation precedes him—the infamous “F****” is as legendary on the field of honor as he is in the bedroom. Which makes it surprising that young E**** C**** has taken up the cause of closing F****’s favorite gambling hell. Who does this brazen, flame-haired beauty think she is?
Love: A Roll Of The Dice?
E*****’s vendetta is personal: She is determined to take a pound of flesh from F****, who ruined her sister. But the man she meets is not the cold-hearted devil she imagined—and is twice as handsome to boot—and soon E**** finds herself falling for him. Their battle of wills quickly ignites into blazing desire. Could it be that the most jaded Lord of Vice is finally willing to risk everything and gamble on her heart? Or is true love only a fool’s game?
Book Blind Date #2
C***** N****, Supreme God of the South Wind and Summer, is on a mission: save E**** from his death sentence and prove his troubled brother can be redeemed. But E**** fights back, triggering vicious summer storms that threaten the mortal realm, dangerously drain C****, and earn the ire of the Olympic gods who ordered E**** dead.
L**** S***** refuses to give up her grandfather’s horse farm, despite her deteriorating vision. More than ever, she needs the organized routine of her life at S***** Stables, until a ferocious storm brings an impossible—and beautiful—creature crashing down from the heavens.
Injured while fighting E****, C**** finds himself at the mercy of a mortal woman whose compassion and acceptance he can’t resist. As they surrender to the passion flaring between them, immortal enemies close in, forcing C**** to choose between his brother and the only woman who’s ever loved the real him.
