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 will wed only my one true love!” declared Princess Brianna despite King Henry’s decree that she marry one of the sons of the man who had conquered her family’s castle. So Brianna issued a seemingly impossible challenge: He who returned with a gift that made her laugh would win her hand. And thus began the bride quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin. . . .
Burke and Rowan, knights both, set out at her command. Only Luc remained, refusing to indulge the whims of the glorious Irish princess. Even Brianna’s legendary beauty could not tempt him–until she invaded his senses . . . and his soul. But Luc thought a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior who vowed to lay down his sword forever–until he was forced to take up arms to protect the fair maiden who had seized his heart by divine right.
Why The Princess?
I just loved this book when I read it years ago and its one of my favorites from this author, who is highly underrated in my opinion (although if you have heard of Deborah Cooke—she writes under that name as well). I just love a good royal romance and this one …..boy the tension between these two is such fun. I did put in the older cover cause personally I do not like the updated covers at all. I think these are so much better. I know I know I am so vain lol at least I am honest 🙂
