Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #10

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:


Deliciously Wicked by Robyn DeHart, published 2006

Blurb:

When wildly independent Meg Piddington finds herself locked in her father's chocolate factory after hours with a most disarmingly attractive gentleman, she doesn't realize that she is his alibi—proof that Gareth Mandeville did not commit a dastardly crime. But admitting as much would destroy her reputation, which gallant Gareth refuses to do. Besides, he believes even prison would be preferable to marriage, which is what their revelation would certainly demand!

At last, here's the perfect opportunity for Meg to don her sleuthing hat to get to the root of the secretive stranger's troubles! Besides, the man sends oh-so-pleasant shivers coursing through her body. And though heaven may well await in Gareth's embrace, danger may dwell there also . . . if the determined lady embarks on a grand mission to win his love.

Here's why you should read this book: the heroine's father owns a chocolate factory and the heroine belongs to a very interesting group called the Ladies' Amateur Sleuth Society. They are fans and followers of Sherlock Holmes and attempt to solve mysteries by themselves. There's a major mystery thread that runs through the series: about the mysterious Jack of Hearts who steals jewels. Did I mention the chocolate factory? ;-)

This is one of my favourite series, actually -- but Robyn DeHart never got to write about the fourth member of the society. It's something that many of her fans (including me) have asked her about and Robyn announced that the fourth book will be coming out soon. Yay!

Hi, Camille! Hi, Ki! When I picked this book out for the TBT, it amazed me how clearly I remember the scenes at the chocolate factory. Lol~ And I also remembered the fireworks between the hero and heroine.

Love Robyn too! Very excited for her new books. ^_^
