Book Blind Date #47
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: (Click covers to purchase the books)
Blind Date #1
After he is betrayed by one of his own, British spy J***** T******, Earl of Langford, refuses to retire without a fight, vowing to find the traitor. But when the trail leads to his childhood home, J***** is forced to return to a place he swore he’d never see again, and meet a woman who may be his quarry—in more ways than one.
Though she may appear a poor young woman dependent on charity, G**** H****’s private life is far more interesting. By night, she finds friendship and freedom as a member of a smuggling ring. But when the handsome J***** arrives, she finds her façade slipping, and she is soon compromised, as well as intrigued.
As she and J***** continue the hunt, G**** finds herself falling in love with the man behind the spy. Yet J*****’s past holds a dark secret. And when he must make a choice between love and espionage, that secret may tear them apart.
Blind Date #2
Being out of control…
The product of a rigid upbringing, B***** has grown into a sexy free spirit who does things her way. No possessions, no debt, no man, and no rules to tie her down. And if she has to work, what better way than as assistant in a wilderness expedition team? So many opportunities to go wild.
…can be risky when you’re falling in love.
One person who doesn’t “get” B***** is her boss, G****. He prefers order and emotions kept in check, which means B***** loves to push his boundaries. He’d be impossible to work for if he wasn’t so infuriatingly hot. But when his overbearing, matchmaking mother arrives in town, B***** volunteers to be G****’s pretend girlfriend. After all, it’s the perfect opportunity to drive G**** crazy at every turn.
B*****’s just a little surprised when G**** agrees to her wild, impulsive schemes. And she’s more than a little surprised when their games take them to the bedroom…
