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
Sweeping from the fabulous country estates and hunting lodges to the opulent ballrooms and salons of the Russian nobility, here is a novel of savage passions and dangerous pleasures by the incomparable Susan Johnson, mistress of the sensual historical and author of the bestselling Outlaw.
He was a renegade prince skilled in the arts of sensual persuasion. . . .
She knew him by reputation; a man unmindful of convention, it was said he offered sensual delight beyond a woman’s wildest dreams. Yet even forewarned of his wild and reckless past, Alisa Forseus found herself responding to the dark smoldering gaze and the quick warmth of Prince Nikolai Kuzan’s stolen caresses. She knew too well that love between them was impossible—forbidden—but she could not resist the rapturous pleasure of one moment in his arms. . . .
She was the exquisite bounty in a scandalous wager of love. . . .
She was to be his prize, his ultimate conquest, but when Nikki found himself alone with the lovely and chaste Alisa, he was shocked to discover that it was more than her body he desire to possess. He had three days to win the heart of this proud and passionate beauty, three days—and nights—to steal her from the man she called husband in name only. For what began as a simple challenge had become a dangerous passion for a woman he’d surrender anything and everything to love—even his renegade heart.
Why Seized By Love?
I adored this book SO much!!! I read this a couple of years ago, and I am always amazed by how much I adore this author each time I read her. She is more old school, but somehow it still works for me. And its set in RUSSIA!!! Loved the setting and culture here.
