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
Proper decorum has never come easily to Carlotta Anne Fairleigh — not even tonight, when the lovely, impetuous miss is finally making her debut. As she waits to make her entrance, she can’t help wondering about the darkened house next door, the supposedly abandoned home of Hayden St. Clair, the man society has dubbed the “Murderous Marquess.” Certainly one small peek through his window before the festivities would be harmless …
And, naturally, this latest “adventure” ends in disaster, thoroughly compromising the budding debutante’s reputation and leaving her suddenly, unthinkably … betrothed! Soon she’s en route to the wilds of Cornwall in the company of the handsome, mysterious marquess whose name the ton whisper with fear and loathing.
Yet there is something thrilling — and surprisingly tender — about her dark, unreachable groom, and the desire in his eyes is undeniable. But before Lottie will surrender to the yearnings in her heart, she must unlock the secrets of Hayden’s past, no matter how scandalous — or perilous — they may be.
Why One Night of Scandal?
I simply loved this book, such a delicious read here. And this story really is the epitome of how dangerous that “Curiosity” can be or delicious in its outcomes. The writing is spectacular and adored every moment of this book.
