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.
Tender the Storm: The Devereux Trilogy - Book One by Elizabeth Thornton, published 1991
Book 1 in the Deveraux Trilogy
Zoe Deveraux is a fearless seventeen-year-old. Though disguised as a schoolgirl, when she is spirited out of France by Rolfe Brockford, Marquess of Rivard, her life changes forever. Posing as a Revolutionary, Rolfe is on a mission to rescue innocents from the bloody horrors of the guillotine.
Once in London, Rolfe finds himself unwilling to abandon the waifish girl and shocks polite society by taking her as his bride -- in name only. What began as a marriage of convenience quickly grows into something altogether different. But Rolfe and Zoe face countless challenges—from political intrigue to their own pride, jealousy, and fiercely guarded secrets. Now, as the strife in Europe hits its peak, two stubborn hearts must make the ultimate alliance.
I've read a few books by Elizabeth Thornton (Trap Trilogy plus some stand-alone novels) and really enjoyed them -- this one is currently FREE on Amazon. Elizabeth Thornton published 28 books before her death in 2010. Her last published work was A Bewitching Bride (2010) which completed her Seers of Grampion series.
