Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #35

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.

Her Ladyship's Companion by Joanna Bourne


When Melissa Rivenwood accepted the position of companion to Lady Dorothy, she had no idea what intrigue enveloped remote Vinton Manor. Why was 7-year-old Robbie, the future Earl of Keptford, so terrified? The trio of fascinating men who surrounded Melissa hid some dangerous family secrets that undoubtedly led to peril-and her suspicions fell on the one man she loved. Regency Gothic by Joanna Bourne; originally published by Avon

I always thought The Spymaster's Lady was Joanna Bourne's first novel (2008), but, apparently, Joanna Bourne published a novel with Avon in 1983. I'd love, love, love to read this book -- but, if you can see the prices on Amazon marketplace, I can't afford to spend $190 for a book. I'm a bit optimistic because, on Joanna Bourne's website, she's listed this book as "Out of Print at the moment" and in another area, there are buy links to it -- crossing my fingers that an ebook is in the works? ^_^

  1. I'm thinking I need to try Joanna Bourne soon. Here's hoping this one gets re-released someday. Great choice!

  2. Hi, Jennifer! You should give her a try -- she writes spy stories very well!
