Book Blind Date #48
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
To truly have her, he must free her from her dark secret....
Enforcer E*** F**** has dedicated her life to protecting her kind. But keeping her heart safe from N*** C*******, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult. The deadly beauty would love to sink into his arms and become his mate, but she knows she can’t—he must never know about her dark past.
When E*** is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, E*** and N*** find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as E*** delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed. The people who wanted her dead in the first place are trying to finish the job, and N*** wants nothing more than to shield her from harm. But can E*** truly trust N*** and let him see the wounded beast she’s hidden for so long?
Blind Date #2
SHE TAKES A CHANCE.
Determined to forge a better life, E*** launches her new business with high hopes—until a sexy Centaur bumps into her and throws her life off course forever. Voted “Most Eligible Bachelor in Boronda”, A********* shakes up her world and tilts her in more ways than one.
HE’S IN DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
Years of warfare and countless bedroom encounters have stolen Kempor A*********’s luster for life. He never expects to rediscover his zeal in the small, redheaded form of E*** the Troll, who fires his blood hotter than the deepest caverns in the forest.
A PASSION SO HOT.
But as trouble lingers in their midst—and edges ever closer—A*** and E*** spiral into troubled terrain. Turning to each other, the pair face down dangers that run impenetrably deep in their mythological world. But will the two lovers discover a passion that runs even deeper?
