Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #21

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.

By Possession by Madeline Hunter, published 2000


A Common Lady
For years she had thought he was dead. Yet when Addis de Valence strode into Moira Falkner's cottage, there was no mistaking the sharp planes of his face, and the scar she herself had helped to heal. The young squire who had once been her hero was now her lord, a hardened man who returned to claim the son she had raised as her own. But Moira couldn't deny that Addis roused a passion she never thought to feel-- and a perilous hope for a future that could never be ...

An Uncommon Love
Addis returned from the Crusades to find his lands usurped by his stepbrother, and his country on the brink of rebellion. Determined to reclaim his birthright, Addis could not afford to be distracted by a woman -- even one as tempting as Moira. Yet the only living part of his contented past lay in Moira -- and his desire for her was more dangerous than his deadly battles with the king's men. By law, Moira belonged to him ... but possessing her heart might be far more difficult.

I loved, loved, loved Madeline Hunter's The Rarest Blooms series and have read a few of the books in her backlist. She's written about the medieval times and about Regency and on a great range of topics from four ladies and a flower business, to her current one about an auction house. She is currently completing her Fairbourne Quartet (I've read the first book and have the second book in my TBR pile.)

  1. Madeline and her Rarest Blooms were just fantastic!!!! The Seducer and Rothwell series are just as great I heard. I really do need to pick some of them up.

  2. Thanks for sharing Tin.. I always enjoy checking out your picks because I realized that I haven't read even a quarter of the romance novel authors out there. :)

  3. Madeline Hunter is an author that I haven't read yet. I have the first Rarest Bloom book, but haven't gotten around to it. I will definitely check this book out soon. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi, Jennifer! The first book in the Rarest Bloom is my least favourite of the series, but the series really picks up with the second to fourth book. ^_^

    Hi, Camille! Thank you! I only just realised just how many romance books are published! And we've only read probably less than 1% of it! ^_^

    Hi, Ki! I'm still undecided with her current series. I really, really want to like it.
