Throwback Thursday: Historical Edition #4

Thank you to Shabby Blogs (http://shabbyblogs.com/) for the free frame!

Happy Thursday, everyone! And welcome to a new feature on Buried Under Romance and Love Saves the World.

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 Mary of Buried Under Romance and I are unapologetic lovers of historical romances, we've decided to focus on our beloved 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.

This week, I'm featuring my first Anne Stuart book:


The Devil's Waltz, published in 2006

I loved this story so much I went and tried to read all of Anne Stuart's historicals. She's an amazingly prolific writer and has written romantic suspense, contemporary and paranormal romances as well. To date, I've read all of her historicals except: The Demon Count, The Demon Count's Daughter, The Spinster and the Rake and Lord Satan's Bride, which are out-of-print. But, I am so proud to say that I was able to track down A Rose at Midnight -- quite an achievement for me because of my geographic location. ^_^

Blurb:

When you dance with the devil, you hold hands with temptation ...
Christian Montcalm was a practical man, if a destitute scoundrel, but his plan to bed and wed the delectable Miss Hetty Chipple would take care of that sticky wicket. However, there was a most intriguing obstacle to his success.

Annelise Kempton desired nothing more than to come between this despicable rogue and the fortune (and virtue) of her young charge. Certainly, Annelise understood the desperation that comes from hard times, but Montcalm would fail -- she would personally see to it. All that stood in her way was a man whose rakish charm could tempt a saint to sin, or consign a confirmed spinster to sleepless nights of longing ... to give the devil his due.

  3. Hi, Kipha! I think her older books are worth looking into. Her Rohan series was very good and I'm enjoying her current series.

    Hi, Renee! Thank you for dropping by with your comment! I wish we had a local library that stocked romances. Who are your favorite authors? ^_^
