Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #9

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.

Here's my pick for the week:


Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught, published 1992

Blurb:

Elizabeth Cameron
The Countess of Havenhurst possessed a rare gentleness and fierce courage to match her exquisite beauty. But her reputation is shattered when she is discovered in the arms of Ian Thornton, a notorious gambler and social outcast.

Ian Thornton
A dangerously handsome man of secret wealth and mysterious lineage, his voyage to Elizabeth's heart is fraught with intrigue, scandal, and a venomous revenge.
Destined for each other, yet wary of each other's motives, Elizabeth and Ian engage in a dance of suspicion and passion that tests the very soul of their star-crossed love. As a twisting path of secrets takes them from London's drawing rooms to the mysterious Scottish Highlands, Elizabeth must learn the truth: is Ian merely a ruthless fortune hunter at heart?

There might be a small chance that I will end up featuring all of Judith McNaught's books for Throwback Thursday because she is _that_ amazing. While this story is now 21 years old, it still retains the same power and magic that captivated me the first time I read it ... almost 21 years ago (Can you figure out how old I am? ^_^).

McNaught is a master at writing highly dramatic moments -- and I think I've cried through all of her books.

  3. @Ki Pha, they are the 4 Js for me: Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, Jude Deveraux and Johanna Lindsey -- they made my teen reading years so, so wonderful. ^_^

    @Camille -- I am patiently waiting for her to come up with a new book. The last I heard, it will be a contemporary, which I will still read because it is McNaught. ^_^
