Throwback Thursday HR Edition: Taken By The Night

This meme was once hosted at Buried Under Romance and Love Saves The World, and hasn’t been active for a while now. So I decided since I have a fierce love for historical romance, to start it up again. Anyone is welcome to join in if you like because I would love to see your pick of the week for a throwback historical romance that you loved!!

What is Throwback Thursday?
Traditionally, Throwback Thursday celebrates nostalgia, asking participants to post a personal photo or an image from their past — usually from 5 to 10 years ago. There are a lot of book blogs that also do a book-related Throwback Thursday.

The Historical Romance Edition:
Since Tin from Love Saves The World, Mary from Buried Under Romance, are fans of historical romance, this is a way to honor our favorite genre.

Here are our rules:
1. It must be posted on a Thursday.
2. It must be a historical romance novel published before October 3, 2008.

I enjoy carnal pleasures like any mortal man, but six hundred years of existence have taught me loss. Best to stay away from people and save myself the heartache. Then I arrive at the notorious London brothel Maison Rouge, and my life, such as it is, will never be the same again.

Ivy Dearing, daughter of the infamous Madam, has requested my assistance. Two of her friends have been murdered, and she is determined to find their killer. I know better than to agree to help, yet Ivy is impossible to resist. No stranger to vampires, she has awakened desires within me that are as potent as my thirst for blood—desires that can only be satisfied by Ivy herself. But when there is another murder, it is all I can do to protect the woman I love from an evil more powerful than the undead .

 

About Kathryn Smith

In a little over a month, my last book with Avon will be released. When Tempting a Rogue is Trystan's book, and I hope you all enjoy it. This means that Archer will not be getting a book of his own. I'm sad, but it's out of my hands. WTaR is also my last book as Kathryn Smith.

Talk about dropping a bomb, right? lol.

Not to worry. I'm still writing. In fact I'm busier than ever right now. On May 31st my Steampunk Young Adult novel 'The Girl in the Steel Corset' will be released under the name of Kady Cross. I'm so nervous and excited about this it's not funny.

Then, I will have Steampunk romance out next year from Signet Eclipse. I'll be writing those under the name Kate Cross. Those of you who enjoyed my historicals should like these as well. Also, my vampire fans should enjoy my 'extraordinary' heroes and heroines.

Speaking of vampires, I've also sold a new series to another publisher. I don't want to say too much because nothing's been signed, but it will have vampires, werewolves, goblins and corsets. Did I mention they're present day and set in an alternate England where WWII never happened, and a certain long-lived monarch is STILL on the throne? I'm having such fun with this new series! Right now the plan is to release these books under the name Kate Locke.

So you see, I'll have plenty of books for you to read, no matter what your preference. There will simply be another name on the cover. Just keep an eye on my Kathryn-Smith.com website (which will be updated soon) for more info. Eventually that website will forward to the Kate Cross site, but you'll still be able to find out the news about all my many names.

And now I return you to your reading!
hugs
