Book Blind Date #26
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:
Blind Date #1
Revenge should be sweet, but it may cost him everything...
The Marquis de V***** escaped certain death in the French Revolution and is now an infamous privateer. Out to avenge the death of his mentor, B***** discovers himself astonishingly out of his depth when confronted with a beautiful, daring young woman who is out for his blood...
Forgiveness is unthinkable, but it may be her only hope...
British Admiral's daughter R***** R***** believes B***** responsible for her fiancé's death. But once the fiery beauty crosses swords with B*****, she's not so sure she really wants him to change his wicked ways...
Blind Date #2
SHE FOLLOWS THE RULES
As the Collegium council's top sheriff of the southeastern United States, V**** B***** doesn't just take her job seriously, she takes it personally. So when a notorious traitor wanted by the authorities suddenly risks his life to save hers, she has to wonder why.
HE BREAKS EVERY ONE OF THEM
As a mage, G***** is sworn to protect innocents from dark magic, which is how he finds himself fighting side by side with the beautiful V**** B*****. But when the council finds out the two have been working together, they're both left running for their lives-from the law, the threat of a ghoul takeover, and a possible Collegium mole.
