Book Blind Date #62
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
The Seldons and Dales have been mortal enemies for centuries …
But that hasn't stopped the roguish C******, Viscount Dale, and the impetuous Lady H******** Seldon from waging their own battle … of the heart. Every stray glance, every chance encounter threatens to reveal the secret passion that keeps drawing them together.
But finally, after years of flirting with disaster …
C****** and H******** find themselves locked in a wine cellar, and now there is no denying the love and loyalties that have lured them in and torn them apart time and time again. Will this one last chance—this tempting night of desire—ignite a fire that will never be extinguished, no matter the price?
Blind Date #2
Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient E******** F**** finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive.
Twelve years later, the woman now known as A****** L***** lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance security systems designer, her own protection is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.
The mystery of A****** L***** and her sharp mind, secretive nature and unromantic viewpoint intrigues local police chief B***** G******, on both a personal and professional level. And while he suspects that A****** needs protection from something, G****** is accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, not the powerful and dangerous men who are about to have him in their sights.
And A****** L*****, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.
