Book Blind Date #36



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
Scarred in the terrible accident that took his wife, gruff Lord K*** has hidden himself from Society. When he meets his neighbor, D***** B******—a young beauty who shares his love for poetry and books—he realizes she is the one woman who could make him forget the past. But how can such a recluse attract the eye of an enchantress? K*** appeals to his godmother, the Duchess of Roxburghe, to help him become the dashing, well-dressed hero of D*****’s dreams.

Arriving at a house party given by the Duchess, D***** is unprepared for the change in her neighbor. Suddenly, she is seeing him in a whole new light. When he captures her lips with an ardent kiss, she realizes he could be her romantic hero, but then a jealous rival twists an inadvertent comment she makes. Now D***** must persuade K*** that she’s not just a pretty girl feeling pity, but a passionate woman who sees past painful scars into the soul of the man she’s come to love.



Blind Date #2
His Secrets Can Destroy Her

From the moment J**** laid eyes on sexy, mysterious S**** D***, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, S**** had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, J**** is shocked when the hospital calls: S**** has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save Him

S**** can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside-or who he even is-but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect J**** overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and J**** is the key to discovering why. As S**** struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can J**** trust a man she thought she knew-one who carries such a deadly secret?
