Can you guess the book...

Everybody's doing it...

1. Grab the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

5. Don't you dare dig around for that "cool" or "intellectual" book on your shelves. (I know you were thinking about it.) Just pick up whatever is closest.

I have 3 books sitting on my desk, so I decided to post from all three.

Book one:
He didn't know her that well at all. In fact, she was desperately, impractically romantic.

She leaned back in her chair, stretching her long bare legs out in front of her. "So let's sum this up," she said in her best lawyerly voice. In truth she'd spent very little time in court, and it had never been up to her to provide the summation ,but she could wing it with the best of them. "I can't leave the house because the doors and windows are electrified, but I can use the pool... What's to keep me from taking off once I'm outside?"
Can you guess my book?

Book two:
He was motivated by an urge for adventure and the hopes of impressing an unattainable lady.

It was not his place to disillusion Miss Welbourne, however. Nor would she thank him for it.

"I'm sure he was very brave," she said.
Can you guess my book?

Book three:
A shiver ran over her; he rubbed his free hand up her bare arm, feeling the coolness of her skin. Of its own accord his hand continued upward, stroking her satiny jaw, smoothing her dark tangle of hair away from her face. She was in a melancholy mood, this funny little cat, staring at the rain as if it would never stop, her eyes shadowed and her full passionate mouth sad.

Cupping her chin in his hand, he tilted her face up so he could study her quiet expression.
Can you guess my book?

Book one is COLD AS ICE.


Book clue!

This is the first time on anyone's blog I knew a book and it's probably because I've read them so recently.

ames said...

LOL Rosie. :P I had no clue for any of these books.

Tara Marie said...

Rosie has book one and two.

They were on the desk because I'd recently read them too. Book three is an oldie and I have no idea why I had it out.

Jenster said...

No clue here, either. I just got a $50.00 GC from B&N for my birthday and I'm getting Rules of Seduction. Can't wait!!

I didn't know any of them either. I need to catch up on my reading.

Bookwormom said...

I don't feel so bad then, I only knew #1.

Tara Marie said...

Jen, 1. Happy Birthday. 2. I hope you like it. 3. Our school is doing a B&N fund raiser at the end of the month, I'm planning on doing some shopping then.

Meljean, don't feel bad, I think I only got one of the several I've come across on other blogs.

Amanda, completely clueless about the ones you posted--LOL.

Tara Marie said...


Book three is an old category romance by a very popular writer.
