Book Blind Date #61
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
As the sole remaining heir to the Earl of Daventry, A******** R****** knows his duty: find a wife and sire a son of his own. The perfect bride for a man in his position would be a biddable young girl of good breeding. But the woman who haunts his imagination is J**** B*******--a village midwife with a dark secret that thrusts her into R******'s protection.
Within the space of a day, J**** has been abducted by her first husband's cronies, rescued, and proposed to by a man she scarcely knows. Stranger still is her urge to say yes. A union with A******** R****** could benefit them both, but J**** doubts she can ever trust her heart again, or the fervent desire R****** ignites. Yet perhaps only a Lost Lord can show a woman like J**** everything a true marriage can be. . .
Blind Date #2
THE TRUTH COULD RUIN HER
P******, the widowed Duchess of Ormonde, keeps a dangerous secret—the truth of how her brutish husband died. But a mysterious avenger seems to know it, too, and when anonymous threats turn into public attacks, there’s only one friend she can turn to for help—her husband’s former secretary, Lord A***** L****. The man who witnessed her every heartache. The kind of man whose love she can only dream of …
WILL HIS LOVE SAVE HER?
The youngest of the Duke of Pemberton’s five sons, Lord A***** L**** is used to waiting his turn. For years, he could only stand by, seething, as P****** suffered at the hands of her husband, but now she’s under threat from another source—one who will stop at nothing to make her pay for the late duke’s death. But the good-natured A***** can be dangerous when crossed—and he’ll do anything to keep the woman he’s adored for so long safe in his arms…
