Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #5

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 my favorite Jude Deveraux book:

The Duchess by Jude Deveraux, published 1992


Jude Deveraux captures the thrill of an American beauty's Highlands wedding, where a royal title is at stake -- and where love wins the day.

The Duchess
Claire Willoughby risked losing millions in her inheritance if, as decreed by her grandfather, she did not wed an "acceptable" man. Harry Montgomery, the eleventh Duke of MacArran, seemed perfect. He owned a historic castle, he looked manly in a kilt, and he was as much a titled Scotsman as Bonnie Prince Charlie himself.

Their engagement announced, Claire's future as a duchess was assured -- and she set off with her family to meet the Montgomery clan in Scotland. Bramley Castle was a damp, chill place, over├żowing with eccentric relatives. But there was also Trevelyan, a secretive, brooding man who lived in Bramley's ancient halls. Whoever he was, he wasn't at all like Harry: Trevelyan was the most exasperating, arrogant, know-it-all of a man Claire had ever met. And the most fascinating...

Favorite part of this book: Trevelyan and all of his tables. I still dream of having a room like that, where I can move from table to table whenever I wish. ^_^

  1. LOLOL The answer to why you love this book are the tables is just hilarious! Now I'll have to check it out.

  2. hehe.. the 'multiple' tables really do sound intriguing.. :) haven't read Jude Deveraux in a long time.. i think the last i've read was Knight in Shining Armor...

  3. Hi, Kipha! It's a fun book! (The heroine is so-so -- the little sister is more interesting. But I have a crush on Trevelyan up to now.)

    Hi, Camille! I was going to feature A Knight in Shining Armor but I loved this book more. ^_^

  4. @Mary, he's an adventurer and writes about his travels. He has a room full of tables and, when he's writing a book, he moves from table to table. ^_^
