Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #20

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.

The Inconvenient Duchess by Christine Merrill, published October 2006


Dear Cici and Father,
I have come to Devon and married a duke. And I'm more tired and hungry than I have ever been in my life. Please let me come home.

Compromised and wedded on the same day, Lady Miranda was fast finding married life not to her taste. A decaying manor and a secretive husband were hardly the stuff of girlish dreams. Yet every time she looked at dark, brooding Marcus Radwell, Duke of Haughleigh, she felt inexplicably compelled -- and determined -- to make their marriage real!

I've written about how I came to discover Christine Merrill when I reviewed this book in September. Bottom line is that I really loved this book and came to fall in love with Merrill's writing. I plan to work my way through Merrill's backlist this year and I'm also following her The Saint and the Sinner series.

  1. :D This is a great book!!!! Love it~

  2. I got this book for free when I first started using my e-reader, but still have never gotten to it. I'll have to try it soon. I actually read a Christine Merrill book (The Saint) that I got through Netgalley and it was okay. Her writing style is interesting though I wasn't a huge fan of the set-up of the romance. Thanks for sharing!
