Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition

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.

Her Norman Conqueror by Malia Martin, published 1998

A Desperate Nobleman

Aleene has steadfastly vowed never to enter into a forced marriage with the vile pawn who threatens to usurp power over her beloved Seabreeze Castle. But she never expected rescue could come in the virile form of a poacher caught roaming the estate. In one rash, rebellious act she marries this man.

A Divine Opportunity

But once the wedding vows are said, Alene begins to see Cynewulf, her husband, in all his golden splendor. With his mane of sun-drenched locks, Cynewulf is breathtakingly handsome and his hands work magic on her in ways she never believed possible. Yet how could Aleene ever have known that the unexpected passion joining her with this man, who she has come to know as her soul mate, will lead her into a more treacherous game ... one she can only win through the power of an all-encompassing love?

This is Malia Martin's debut novel, published in 1998. She went on to publish 3 more books, with her latest book published in 2002.
