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.
Beast by Judith Ivory (published 1997)
An exquisite American heiress, Louise Vandermeer is beautiful, brilliant ... and bored -- which is why she has agreed to a daring adventure: to travel across the ocean to marry an aristocrat abroad. Rumor has it her intended is a hideous cad -- a grim prospect that propels her into a passionate, reckless affair with a compelling stranger she never sees in the light of day.
Though scarred by a childhood illness, Charles d'Harcourt has successfully wooed Europe's most sophisticated beauties. For a lark, he contrived to travel incognito on his own fiancee's ship -- and seduce the young chit in utter darkness. But the rake's prank backfired. It was he who was smitten -- while the hot-tempered Lulu, now his wife, loves only her shipboard lover, unaware it was d'Harcourt all the time! And Charles will never have her heart -- unless he can open her eyes to the prince who hides within.
Sherry Thomas cites Judith Ivory's Beast as inspiration for her own story, Beguiling the Beauty. I have never read Judith Ivory and I really think I should this coming 2015. Beast was Judith Ivory's debut novel. Her last published book was Angel in a Red Dress in 2006. I could not find her website. Does anyone have more information/updates about Judith Ivory?
