Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition

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.


Christmas Pie by Emma Craig, published December 1997

Blurb: 
Unlike most girls her age, Polly doesn't go out with friends to parties or on sleigh rides with charming beaus. She stays home to take care of her ailing mother and only dreams of a world of boundless riches and endless fun. But when shopping for a Christmas gift in Chinatown, she receives a mysterious coin from an ancient-looking woman -- and watches as a wonderful series of events begins to unfold.

I know Christmas is over, but I saw this cover at our local used bookstore and I knew I wanted to feature it for TBT:Historical Romance this week. Honestly, who can resist a book with the word "pie" on the cover? ^_^

Emma Craig released her debut novel in 1997, Rosamunda's Revenge and proceeded to publish 6 novels and contribute in 3 anthologies between 1997 and 2001. Her last published book as Emma Craig was in 2001, Gabriel's Fate. She's currently writing as Alice Duncan.

      Her name sounded familiar to me, but it was the cover that caught my eye. ^_^

  2. It is so amazing how many historical authors there are that I have never heard of. I do love Christmas stories so I'll add this to my watchlist. Thanks!

    1. Hi, Jennifer!

      How true! And that's why I love that we are all challenging ourselves with our weekly TBT posts so that we can feature new-to-us authors. ^_^
