Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #50

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.

A Dance Through Time by Lynn Kurland, published 1996

Scotland, 1311. James MacLeod was the most respected -- and feared -- laird in all of Scotland. He loved his men like brothers and his land with a passion. And he allowed no women to cross the threshold of his keep ...

New York City, 1996. With an indifferent fiancé and a stalled writing career, Elizabeth Smith found passion and adventure only in the unpublished romance novels that she wrote. Until a Scottish hero began calling to her ...

Elizabeth longed for the man of her dreams. But she knew she was overworked when she began hearing his voice -- when she was awake. To clear her mind, she took a walk in Gramercy Park. She dozed off on a bench -- and woke up in a lush forest in fourteenth-century Scotland. A forest surrounding the castle of James MacLeod, an arrogant and handsome lord with a very familiar voice. Elizabeth would turn his ordered world upside-down and go where no woman had ever gone before: straight into his heart ...

Watching Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series on Starz has made me curious about the time-travel trope, and I can only recall reading 2 historical romance novels with a time-travelling hero/heroine (Jude Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor and Sweet Liar). Lynn Kurland's debut novel in 1996 featured an author who travels back to time. It's also the first book in a series that has spanned 12 books, with the latest book published in 2012.

  1. This author is one of my favorites and she has done great with her time travel romances. Great pick.

    1. I looked through her booklist and she's written quite a number on the time-travel theme -- what amazes me is her crossover to fantasy. ^_^

  2. I haven't read much time travel romances but I have been intrigued by Outlander and some short reads I've done.

    1. Hi, Ki! I haven't read any in recent time. But I've been following Outlander (on Facebook and elsewhere) and I'm suddenly intrigued by the concept. ^_^

  3. I tried to read a Lynn Kurland book years ago and couldn't finish it. But, I do enjoy time travel so I may give this one a try someday. Yeah for Outlander!!
