Book Blind Date #49
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
Everything’s coming together for budding fashion designer C******* P******. Only months away from having her own line, she could use some publicity. That’s when her brother suggests his best friend as a model—hockey player D*** H****.
C******* and D*** already have a history—a hot one, back in college. Unforgettable for C*******, but for D***, just another slap shot. This time, though, it’s different. His perfect body would be for professional use only. This time, she could use him.
D*** is all for it. He’s looking forward to the exposure. Plus, it would give him a chance to prove to C******* that he’s changed. If only he could thaw her emotions, convince her to let down her guard and let him in just one more time…
Blind Date #2
All E**** S****** wanted was to convince the man she had adored for years that she was the woman he ought to marry. She never expected that her ill-fated deception at a party would uncover a scheme against the Crown and ensnare her in the sensual trap of an enigmatic stranger.
D***** B********, the Earl of Shalcross, knows he must marry E**** to defend her honor and keep his mission secret. But, by saving her reputation, he will draw her into his arms as well as a dangerous intrigue.
After a whirlwind courtship that leaves her breathless, E**** finds herself wed to a husband who vows not only to protect her from his menacing world—but to train his wife in the pleasures of passion.
