Book Blind Date #51
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:
Midnight's Temptation (Dark Warriors)
Blind Date #1
Self-made tycoon L***** S***** heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Z***. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, L***** plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. Of course, he didn't count on falling for Big Sky Country…or R** M******.
R**'s starting to settle into country life herself…until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door—and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either. Could L*****'s homecoming be her heart's undoing?
Blind Date #2
He left her when she needed him most…
Four years ago, Dr. G**** F***** lost everything that mattered in a terrorist attack she barely survived. Now she’s stronger than ever and in Pakistan with a UN-sanctioned team for the most important assignment of her career. She’s dedicated her life to eradicating the world of chemical weapons, and long ago accepted the inherent risks associated with her job. Until the man whose memory has haunted her for so long suddenly reappears and inadvertently makes her the target of one of the most dangerous terrorists on the planet. Forced to accept A***’s protection, it’s impossible to deny the white-hot attraction still burning between them. And while she trusts him to guard her from this new threat, G**** must once again decide whether to risk her heart to the man who once shattered her entire world.
Now he’ll risk everything to win her back…
Four years ago, NSA agent A*** R****** left G**** because had no choice. But never again. M**** H****** has escaped custody, he’s on the run, and has locked onto G**** as a means to target A***. This time A*** will do whatever it takes to protect her—and convince her to give them another chance. Walking away from her nearly destroyed him and now that she’s back in his life, he can’t let her go. When the unthinkable happens and G****’s life hangs in the balance, he’ll sacrifice everything to save her—including himself.
