Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #30

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.

Thunder and Roses by Mary Jo Putney, published 1993


A Dangerous Bargain

“They called him the Demon Earl. They said he could do anything.” Son of a rogue and a gypsy, Nicolas Davies was a notorious rake until a shattering betrayal left him alone and embittered in the Welsh countryside. Desperation drives quiet schoolmistress Clare Morgan to ask the Demon Earl to help save her village. Unwilling to involve himself in the problems of others, Nicholas sets an impossible price on his aid -- only if Clare will live with him for three months, letting the world think the worst, will he intervene. Furiously Clare accepts his outrageous challenge, and finds herself drawn into a glittering Regency world of danger and desire. As allies, she and Nicholas fight to save her community. As adversaries, they explore the hazardous terrain of power and sensuality. And as lovers, they surrender to a passion that threatens the foundations of their lives ...

I'm a big fan of Mary Jo Putney's current Lost Lords series and would have wanted to feature the first book of that series, Loving a Lost Lord, but it missed the cut-off (published in 2009). Thunder and Roses is the first book of Putney's Fallen Angels series. I've read a few books from the series and would love to be able to read it from beginning to end.

  2. Mary Jo Putney's books are wonderful reads!!
    I have read all seven books in the Fallen Angels series....very good books in my opinion.
    I have to dig them out from my pile of books and reread them, thank you for listing this book.
    The Lost Lords series is also very good.
    Thanks Tin for Throwback Thursday! :-)

  3. I do love this author, but I haven't read this one. I really love the blurb for it though. It does sound like something I would really enjoy reading.

  4. I haven't read this author yet. T__T But I am intrigued by that book summary. Based on the plot, lots of fireworks and personality clashes ahead, which is a great start for a wonderful romance. LOL :) And I love that cover! They look so tender with each other.. aww..
