Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #3

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.

This week, I'm featuring one my new favorite authors' debut novel:

When Dashing Met Danger by Shana Galen, published 2005

I miss the old painted covers done by Avon.

I discovered Shana Galen only recently when I read and fell in love with When You Give a Duke a Diamond and now I'm following her Jewels of the Ton series. She is also working on another series (Lord and Lady Spy) and the latest installment for that series, True Spies, just came out.


Alex Scarston, Earl of Selbourne. Rake. Spy. With his efforts for England in the war against the French suspended, family obligations compel him to investigate the disappearance of Viscount Brigham's son. When the viscount's daughter becomes involved as well, Alex finds himself entangled in a venture that risks both heart and soul.

It's not that Lucia Dashing, youngest daughter of Lord Brigham, wants Alex to go away. She just wishes he wasn't always so close—perhaps a few rooms, or streets, or continents between them would bank the heat of her attraction. But when her brother disappears, she's no choice but to engage the earl in a battle risking her brother, her country, and her love.

  1. Eeeekkk! I absolutely love Shana!!!!! And of course her Lord and Lady Spy Spies series is an absolutely must read! I beggared her to write the next installments for Lord and Lady Spy every chance I got and am super happy she took on the challenge! Well, I wasn't the only one to bother her about the book but I do give myself credit for always nagging her about it. She probably knows me by "the girl who always bother me about Lord and Lady Spy..." LOL

  2. Hi, kipha!

    Wow, now I'm curious about her Lord and Lady Spy series. Will probably finish her Jewels first before moving on to her other series. Have you read her older books? Which one would you recommend?

  3. I haven't read her really early ones but her Sons of Revolutionary series was also great. The Rogue Pirate's Bride which is the third and last book in the series was amazing.

  4. Hi Tin! Old painted covers were richer then some of the Avon obvious choices. Computer doesn't work well for every cover... I love Shana too xD

  5. Hi, Kipha!

    That's actually the series that most intrigues me! Do I need to read them chronologically? Or do they work as stand-alones?

    Hi, Nat!

    It's wonderful to have your blog back! ^_^ Thanks for dropping by!
