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.
PRISONER OF PASSION
Rowena’s drunken father wagered her life in a game of dice–and lost. Now, for one year, she must offer her services to the one man she feared most: Sir Gareth, the Dark Lord of Caerleon! More monster than man, Gareth had been condemned by all England for his wicked deeds. Some claimed he was a murderer… and worse.
SLAVE OF SUSPICION
Rowena was terrified of the darkly handsome stranger. But even a heartless rogue such as Gareth could be lulled by her beauty and spirit. The innocent girl tapped a vein of tenderness beneath his iron muscles and bitter words that belied his evil reputation. Now Rowena was falling in love, her heart torn by fiery emotions …
Was Gareth a murderer seeking vengeance? A lover whose touch she craved? Or both …?
Why Shadows and Lace?
I love this book and of course its written by Teresa Medeiros and there isn’t a book she has written that I didn’t enjoy. Its vibrant and full of historic details and a great page turner.
