Book Blind Date #43
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
Destined for spinsterhood, I****** “I***” T***** can only dream of finding a husband—of feeling his touch in the dark, his lips on her neck, his passion building with each kiss. Imagine her surprise when she awakens to find she’s not dreaming at all! Lord J***** B*********, has mistaken I***’s room for his—and he’s fallen into her bed and into her wildest dreams…
When the household discovers a man in her boudoir, I*** pretends that J***** is her fiancé . Once he spends time playing the part, J***** finds himself falling for the fiesty beauty. But how can I*** trust that this notorious rake’s feelings are for real—and that she won’t end up being branded a “fallen” woman?
Blind Date #2
The small Montana town near the Kooskia reserve seemed like the perfect place for J***** M********* to hide from her not-so-law-abiding family. But when her peace is shattered by a break-in and threatening phone calls, it’s clear someone back in New York knows where she is. It’s time to plan her getaway, and fast—but first, she needs to tie up a few loose ends and find out exactly what the town’s sexy cowboy sheriff is hiding.
Sheriff Q**** L**** has enough demons of his own to know when someone’s hiding something, and he's determined to uncover what’s beneath J*****’s uptight, city-girl exterior—preferably one piece of clothing at a time. But when their chemistry goes from fizzy to full-on explosive, things start getting complicated.
How can J***** stay beneath the covers with Q****, when doing so means blowing her cover?
