Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #22

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...
When Dreams Come True
   When Dreams Come True by Cathy Maxwell, first published in 1998
                                                  Goodreads | Amazon
Everyone knew the Earl of Penhollow needed a wife, so one thunderous night the villagers gathered together to ask the ocean to deliver a bride to the bachelor lord . . .

When Pierce Kirrier rescues a mysterious beauty from the billowing ocean waves, he has no idea who she is or where she came from. But at first sight of this enchanting maiden, he knows he must claim her for his own. Taking her back to Penhollow Hall, he pampers her like a princess, determined to win her trust and her heart.

For Eden, awakening in an elegant bedchamber in a remote corner of Cornwall is like a perfect dream. In Pierces arms she has discovered true love, true joy, and a passion she never imagined could exist. Yet she knows in her heart that, once her secret past catches up with her, her dreams could be shattered . . . forever.

This is the book that introduced me to Cathy Maxwell, and one of my favorites by her. I've reviewed it HERE -- or just go to the post below, because I had forgotten to upload my review until TbT. :)

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

Happy Reading! 


  1. LOL!!! Did you pick Cathy because she was a guess at Katharine's party this evening?
    Well, I definitely love the 2012 cover! That's just sexy~
    And that blurb just made me laugh. The villagers wished him a bride from the sea! That's just awesome! :D

    1. LOL Ki, I'll have you know that party drained me out. So, yes, I took the easy route out. :D Also because I realized that I never posted my review of her book on this blog. Only on Goodreads.

  2. I've only read a few Cathy Maxwells, but I did enjoy them. I'll have to look for this one soon. Thanks for sharing!
