Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #43

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.

Irish Gypsy by Virginia Henley, published in July 1982 (Later republished as Enticed)

Though famine holds her beloved Ireland in its deadly grip, young, innocent Kitty Rooney is a survivor. An exotic gypsy lass with cascading curls of ebony silk and eyes of brown velvet, Kitty vows that someday, somehow, the riches of the earth will be laid at her feet. Then Patrick O'Reilly walks into her life, his eyes burning hungrily over her body, his lips promising her the world, making a woman of her in one sweet, scorching night.

I haven't read Virginia Henley, but she's one of my friend's favourite authors. This is her debut novel, Irish Gypsy, which was later republished as Enticed. She's had an amazing career, and she's still writing! Her Lord Rakehell will be released in paperback later this year (it was released in hardcover format last year).

  1. I haven't read anything by this author.
    I have to look her up and see about locating some of her books.
    There's just so many wonderful authors out there....I NEED more hours in a day!! LOL!!

  2. Yup, I haven't read her books yet but heard they were great. I think I picked one of her books once. But this sounds like it'll be a very steamy read~

  3. I haven't read anything by Virgina Henley, but this one sounds...interesting. I love the 80s vibe to the character descriptions with the "cascading curls of ebony silk and eyes of brown velvet." Thanks for sharing!
