Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #21

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...

  To Taste Temptation by Elizabeth Hoyt, published in May 2008
                                                  Goodreads | Amazon

Lady Emeline Gordon is the model of sophistication in London’s elite social circles, always fashionable and flawlessly appropriate. As such, she is the perfect chaperone for Rebecca, the young sister of a successful Boston businessman and former Colonial soldier.
Samuel Hartley may be wealthy, but his manners are as uncivilized as the American wilderness he was raised in. Who wears moccasins to a grand ball? His arrogant disregard for propriety infuriates Emeline, even as his boldness excites her.
But beneath Samuel’s rakish manner, he is haunted by tragedy. He has come to London to settle a score, not to fall in love. And as desperately as Emeline longs to feel this shameless man’s hands upon her, to taste those same lips he uses to tease her, she must restrain herself. She is not free. But some things are beyond a lady’s control…

As I featured Elizabeth Hoyt's Darling Beast for the Waiting on Wednesday meme, I wanted to feature the first of her Four Soldiers series here. I haven't read this yet, but hope to do some in the future! :)

Now, head over to Tin @ Love Saves the World and Ki Pha @ Doing Some Reading for their pick of the week. :-)

Happy Reading! 


  1. I love Elizabeth Hoyt!!! I'm also looking forward to the release of Darling Beast! Apollo's story! ^_^ I think I've read To Taste Temptation ages ago and have forgotten the plot completely. LOL. But it's Elizabeth Hoyt so I just know it was great.

  2. I haven't read any of these!!! Her Maiden Lane are the only ones I've read.And I love her covers!!! Darling Beast is just beautiful!!

  3. I still haven't read Elizabeth Hoyt but she's on my list to try this year. So glad I finally decided to join in on the meme this week :)

  4. This is a wonderful romance, and I think this one might be my favorite of the series. Great pick.

  5. Ooooh, I like the sound of this! I've only read the third one in this series, but I am very intrigued now :)

  6. Elizabeth Hoyt is definitely one of my favorite historical authors right now. Almost everything she does is amazing! This was not my favorite of the series (that would be To Seduce a Sinner), but I still enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I am forever grateful to my book buddy, F, for introducing me to Hoyt and Guhrke. I am so, so excited for Apollo's story!
