The rules of this game are, a person gives a brief synopsis of a book, and the players list books that fit that general synopsis. Although I don't do it in the example, try to attach a link to the book. Any period (historical, contemporary, paranormal) in the romance genre will work for this game. When the submissions are exhausted, we'll move onto the next one.

For example: The hero makes a bet that he can seduce the heroine.

1. Meet Me at Midnight by Jacqueline Navin
2. Lucien's Fall by Barbara Samuel


Does that make sense?

Okay. Here's the first one....

1. The hero and heroine marry because they are caught in a compromising position. (I think we can come up with lots of books that fit this!)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) Okay, I'm bad, but I peeked at my books (not near my computer) and OMG! How could I forget Devil's Bride? I kind-of OD'd on S. Laurens a few years ago when I think I read all her many books in a row (Not recommended with any author!) But this first in the series will always remain one of my favorite. The compromising 'reveal' was several pages long.
