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.
Who will be the last man standing?
New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander’s delicious series about four men desperately trying to avoid matrimony continues…
Lady Cordelia Bannister simply cannot marry a man she has not chosen herself, no matter what her father decrees. So, pretending to be her own companion, she decides to seek out information about her intended by meeting with his secretary–a man who soon beguiles her. But Lady Cordelia doesn’t know the truth–the man can’t resist is really her intended, Daniel Sinclair.
Daniel has nearly won the wager he made with three of London’s most eligible bachelors. While two of his compatriots have surrendered to the shackles of marriage, he’s remained free to woo any woman he chooses. Yet duty forces him to consider Lady Cordelia, so, determined to find a way to escape honor intact, he continues the masquerade he started.
Each finds the other completely irresistible, but when they uncover their mutual mistaken identities, Daniel and Cordelia must make the most important choice of all…
Why Secrets Of A Proper Lady?
Now this is one of the most unique regency romances I have ever read and this book is hilarious of course. I LOVED this book so much, it just kept me on my toes and the writing is fantastic. Its one of those books that I couldn’t put down. It was a five star read, so that should tell you all how much I enjoyed this one and I can’t recommend this one enough. It involved a mistaken identity trope, an arranged marriage and a warm and sensual romance to curl your toes.
