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.
The Wedding Bargain by Victoria Alexander, published October 2006
London's most scandalous beauty, Pandora Effington, intends to marry a hero -- not one of those boring, run-of-the-mill bachelor lords who leave her cold. No, the husband she desires must be someone special, someone whose touch sends delicious shivers down her spine, and who will do absolutely everything in his power to win her love. Someone like ... Maximillian Wells.
The dashing Earl of Trent cannot believe his ears ... or his eyes. Here before him stands beautiful Pandora Effington, and the fiery, unattainable heiress is making him a most tantalizing offer. Maximillian can have the lady's hand in marriage ... if he agrees to play a game of her devising -- one involving great risk, ingenuity, passion, and determination.
It is a game he has no intention of losing ...
The Effingtons are right up there with the Cynsters, the Bridgertons, the Everseas and Redmonds IMHO -- and Pandora was one of the most interesting members of the family (I love her name!). Her book is the first in the series and actually introduces this wonderful family. It's a bit outrageous how she tests Maximillian in the story, and it's fun to read how the hero handles these challenges.
