Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #52

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.

Perils of the Heart by Jennifer Ashley, published November 2002

Sent to seduce the captain of the merchantman Aurora, the English governess trembled in her innocence. Her stepbrother’s life -- and the life of the rugged sailor she must tempt -- depended on her success. Evangeline swore to surrender her body, her virtue ... anything Austin Blackwell demanded. But she never expected to relinquish her heart. On a mission for the American colonies, Austin suspected the timid temptress was a skilled spy ordered to sabotage his plans. She played the part of an untried miss to perfection, her inexperienced fumbling driving him wild with desire. But after sampling her sweetness, after one harrowing night fraught with passion and peril, the commander vowed to navigate any course to discover the truth. For his soul mutinied at the prospect of sailing into the future without the courageous lady by his side.

I recently discovered Jennifer Ashley books, though I've heard of and seen her books before, so I'm making up for lost time. ^_^ I fell in love with Ian in The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie and am currently going through her Highland Pleasures (Mackenzie/Macbride) series. Perils of the Heart was her debut novel in 2002.
