Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #18

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.

Lord Ruin by Carolyn Jewel (Published December 2002)


Ruan Bettancourt, the Duke of Cynssyr, intends to marry London's most beautiful debutante. A case of mistaken identity forces him to marry her sister, spinster Anne Sinclair. Before long, he's head-over-heels in love with his wife while Anne is determined to make the best of her unwanted marriage. Can the man society calls “Lord Ruin” convince Anne he's fallen in love in with her?

I don't know how I found Carolyn Jewel, but I'm glad I did. She has a very unique voice in historical romance and I've once referred to her prose as beautifully strange. She took a break from historical romances in 2009 to write paranormal romances but I'm really, really glad that she's back to writing historicals. Her current series, Seducing the Scoundrels is quite amazing and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.

  1. Oooo~ I haven't read any of Carolyn's backlist so I'll have to look into them.

  2. I've never read anything by Carolyn Jewel but I'm definitely partial to a romance where a rake ends up married to a 'spinster', I'll have to check it out :)

  3. Oohh, my kind of set-up :) Added to my TBR list :)

  4. I've only read one Carolyn Jewel (Scandal) and loved it. I have had Lord Ruin on my wishlist for ages and I think I need to move it up the priority list. Great choice!

  5. Love the pick! I have heard of this author, but mostly her more recent books. I will have to check this one out more!!
