Book Blind Date #32
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
The last thing C***** M******* wants is to inherit his Aunt G*******'s mansion in the San Juan islands off the coast of Washington. As the pack leader of the Trevelyans in Scotland, he had little time to travel halfway around the world to take care of his inheritance.
But the trip takes a pleasant turn when he meets L*** R*******, the young secretary his aunt hired shortly before she died. He isn't sure which surprises him more-L***'s clever plan for turning the mansion into a resort of the fact that she's drop-dead gorgeous. Both intrigue him-until he learns that L*** is only a half-breed. There's no way a pack leader can mate with a woman who's partly human...or is there?
Blind Date #2
The new king of Camelot wears no shining armor: Arthur and his knights have fallen and a new king rules.
In the darkest forest...
A scared, forsaken youth has become the most powerful—and feared—man in the world. Ruthless and unrestrained, K******* has long ceased to be human.
In the heart of London...
A spirited peasant mired in drudgery, S**** dreams of becoming her own woman, but never expects that by fleeing her fate, she will meet her destiny.
Their worlds are forever changed...
K*******'s goal is simple: barter or kill S**** to claim Arthur's Round Table. Yet she is the one person who holds no fear of him. More than that, her nobility sparks something foreign inside him. In his nether realm, kindness is weakness and a king who harbors any sort of compassion loses his throne.
For countless centuries, K******* has lived alone in the shadows. Now S****'s courage has forced him into the light that will bring either salvation to both of them...or death.
