Throwback Thursday HR Edition: Chance the Winds of Fortune

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

Fortune smiled on Dante Leighton, titled lord turned pirate. Sailing before the Sea Dragon’s towering masts, he plundered hearts and cargoes from the Carolinas to Trinidad’s turquoise lagoons. But one treasure always eluded him …. Until, a world away, at the English country estate of Lucien and Sabrina Dominick, a series of dazzling intrigues results in the abduction of their golden-haired daughter, Rhea …. And now, in a gathering wave of turbulent emotion, the fates of Rhea and Dante converge unforgettably — in a quest for sunken Spanish treasure … and a love worth a thousand fortunes.

Why Chance the Winds of Fortune?

This is such a wonderful book, its part of a trilogy and is a re release of a book that was written in the “old school” style. This features multiple romance sub plots as well as a continuation of an epic love couple we saw in the previous book. It has a solid villain and some great build up of intrigue and adventure. If you enjoy old school romance, you definitely need to check this trilogy out.

About Laurie McBain

Laurie McBain was born on October 15, 1949. She was always passionate about art and history, and her father encouraged her and helped her write her first historical romance. At twenty-six, Laurie became a publishing phenomenon with her first historical romance. Her first novels "Devil's Desire" and "Moonstruck Madness" each sold over a million copies. She was one of the pioners of the new romance style with Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. But, after the death of her father, she decided to retire from the publishing world in 1985, with only seven romances written.
