Book Blind Date #29
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
Shy, warm-hearted Miss G**** K****** knows she is “just” the parson’s daughter, with no chance of tempting her new neighbor, Lord T**** M********. After all, every eligible beauty for miles around is swooning over the brooding former spy. He’s the picture of sin, and though he once had the audacity to kiss her senseless, he can have no interest in someone like G****. Yet, somehow, the seductive rogue unleashes her own inner
Every lady loves a hero—but T***** has no interest in any of them—except for the refreshingly candid G**** K******. If he had a heart left, G**** might steal it. She insists he’s better than he thinks. He’s sure she’s
absolutely wrong. Until danger threatens, and T***** rediscovers how easy it is to be a hero…for the right lady.
Blind Date #2
Lady M*** D***** should be the envy of London. Instead, all society believes her dead. For M*** holds a secret so dangerous, her father chose to keep her locked away…and have a grave made for her near her mother’s. Driven to the edge of desperation, M*** manages to escape the asylum, only to find that her fate yet again rests in the hands of a man…
E**** B******, Duke of Fairleigh, longs for some way to escape the torment of his father’s crimes. In M***’s warrior spirit and haunted gaze—which so mirrors his own—he finally sees his path to redemption. He will stop at nothing to keep her safe, even as she seeks revenge. But will the passion they discover in each other be enough to save them from their demons?
