Book Blind Date #58
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
When female wolf shifter T**** W***** first encounters T*** C******, an alpha male wolf shifter with a dangerous reputation, she’s determined to resist his charms. After all, T***—who was only fourteen when he defeated his own father in a duel, winning the right to be alpha of his pack—can’t have anything to offer the talented healer besides trouble, or so she thinks. T**** finds herself drawn in by T***’s forceful demeanor and arctic-blue eyes, and she eventually agrees to enter an uneasy alliance with him. If the two succeed in convincing their respective packs that they’ve chosen each other as mates, T*** will win valuable political allies, while T**** will escape an odious arranged mating.
But there are a lot of potential pitfalls to this plan—including the very real possibility that the wolf shifters, overwhelmed by their growing attraction to each other, will be unable to maintain the clear heads needed to pull off the deception.
Blind Date #2
To bring down a sleazy abduction ring, Lieutenant M******* "M****" P******* has set herself up as bait. But recruiting D****** R**** as her unofficial partner is a whole other kind of danger. D*** is six feet four inches of laid-back masculine charm, a man who loves life—and women—to the limit. Until M**** is threatened, and he reveals a dark side that may just match her own….
Beneath M****'s tough facade is a slow-burning sexiness that drives D*** crazy. The only way to finish this case is to work together side by side…skin to skin. And as their mission takes a lethal turn, he'll have to prove he's all the man she needs—in all the ways that matter….
