Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition (#8)


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 Tin of Love Saves the World 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.

So, the novel I'm featuring is...

                                                         

                                                   
                                                      Devilish by Jo Beverley, published first in 2000
                                                    Goodreads | Amazon

Blurb:
The Marquess of Rothgar has been haunted all his life by witnessing his mother turn mad and murder his baby sister. With such blood in his veins, he is resolved not to marry, but then he meets Lady Arradale.

Diana, Countess of Arradale is that rarest of creatures, a peeress in her own right, holding extraordinary power and influence for a woman. To marry risks losing her independence, and yet when she meets the Marquess of Rothgar, for the first time she is tempted. She is tempted in a strictly physical way as well, and surely that might be safe when he is the one man in England who does not want to marry her wealth and power.

Both decide it would be wiser to part, but then the king, alarmed by awareness of such a powerful woman loose in his realm, commands Rothgar to escort the countess to London.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is book 5 in Jo Beverley's colorful Mallorean series, of which there are 13 books to date. Confession time! I have actually never finished this book, but from what I've read and others' reviews, it is a very grand tale. A peeress is a very rare thing and Diana is an incredibly strong and independent heroine. Rothgar's power and influence is almost unmatched, and for such an uncompromising man to fall in love...well, it's a journey. I hope to finish this book one day (curse you, ARCs) and will continue to follow Jo Bev's books. ^_^


Now, head over to Tin @ Love Saves the World for her pick of the week.  Ki Pha @ Doing Some Reading has also joined us, so be sure to visit her blog as well. :-)

  3. Confession: I had a copy of this book but never read it! I do like the idea of a peeress, which is a rare thing in romance novels. ^_^

    1. Very much so. Might I recommend Liz Carlyle's In Love with a Wicked Man? That is the second book I've read with a peeress. Only these two, really.
