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.
So, the novel I’m featuring is…
From the shimmering cities of a faraway land to the heather-scented hills of the Scottish Highlands comes this passionate tale of adventure and dangerous desire by one of America’s bestselling and beloved authors, Iris Johansen.
TIGER, TIGER, BURNING BRIGHT
In a locked room of shadows and sandalwood, Jane Barnaby first met the wickedly disturbing man whose searing blue eyes and brazen smile seem to read her deepest desires—a man who exudes the mystery and danger of exotic lands. In his mesmerizing presence, Jane finds herself instantly transformed from a hardheaded businesswoman to the willing slave of a passion she knows she must resist.
IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT . . .
A man of sensuous grace and smoldering sensuality, adventurer Ruel McClaren brings the independent beauty back to his native Scotland to spin a web of revenge. But once at Glenclaren Castle, he finds it ever harder to play the unforgiving captor to this woman who touches his heart and makes his blood run hot.
Why Tiger Prince?
Tiger Prince is a fantastic historical romance. What I have adored about this author is how well she mixes up adventure and romance. Iris Johansen just mixes up historical details with a great love story so well. Her books are some of the most swoony romances.
