Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #50

Thank you to Shabby Blogs (http://shabbyblogs.com/) 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

Blurb: 
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 With an indifferent fiancé and a stalled writing career, Elizabeth Smith found passion and adventure only in the unpublished romance novels that she wrote.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. 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. ^_^
