Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #2

Thank you to Shabby Blogs ( 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.

So, here's my second feature:

This is one of my favorite Julie Garwood historical romances. (I've read them all! ^_^) I love the Saxon-Norman rivalry and, to this day, I still don't know how to pronounce the heroine's name: (Nicola-a? Nicolay-a?)

The Prize by Julie Garwood, published 1991


In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her. Ferocious in battle, seasoned in passion, Royce was surprised by the depth of his emotion whenever he caressed his charming bride.

In a climate of utmost treachery, where Saxons still intrigued against their Norman invaders, Royce and Nicholaa revelled in their precious new love ... a fervent bond soon to be disrupted by the call of blood, kin and country

  1. ouuuu Julie Garwood! But for some reason I haven't picked her up yet. :( I'm not being a good HR reader.

  2. Have not read a Julie Garwood book in ages! Oh my! I must revisit them as they are glorious! I LOVE to read!

  3. You guys should read her historicals! They are so, so good!

    When I went back to reading HRs 7 years ago, I pulled out all of my old Garwoods and reread them all -- and loved them all over again. ^_^
