Color profiling with Lightroom 5->Blurb


I'm in the process of creating a photo book  that I aim to self publish via Blurb. I'm using the LR 5 book module.  My processed image files are 16 bit Photoshop. It's my understanding that I can up load directly to Blurb & Lightroom will process them appropriately for the book.

However, I'm confused about the issue of color management. My question is this:

*When Lightroom 5 processes my .PSD images for upload to does it also adjust the color profile for printing to book? (Like convert to CMYK?) 

*Related to this, can I then expect the hue/saturation in my photos to "shift" significantly? 

*Should I first soft proof in Photoshop with the blurb CMYK .icc profile and then  upload via Lightroom?

 Thanks in advance for reading this and letting me know the answers.
