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
Set during the misty Middle Ages, when brave knights in shining armor rescued fair maidens and chivalry and honor were prized above all things, this quartet of novellas from some of the genre’s best-known writers takes the concept of the vow and spins it into four very different yet thematically linked medieval tales.
Lynn Kurland – The Traveller (MacLeod #2.6)(de Piaget/MacLeod #7.5)
A bedraggled knight makes a solemn vow to protect, defend, and rescue any and all maidens in distress – even those from Manhattan…
Patricia Potter – The Minstrel
A vow to marry for love transforms a marquis into a minstrel who must sing for his supper – and for a woman whose heart is true…
Deborah Simmons – The Bachelor Knight
A forgotten vow comes back to haunt the greatest knight in all the land,when a fair maiden asks for hand in marriage…
Glynnis Campbell – The Siege
Trapped underground with his unwilling betrothed, a determined knight vows to free her – body and soul…
Why A Knight’s Vow?
I simply adored this book so deeply….one of my ALL time favorite anthologies actually. If you love medieval historical romance, then you definitely need to try this book out, I guarantee you will love it.
