Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #23

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...

   Bride of the Beast by Sue-Ellen Welfonder, published in 2003
When passion is fierce, resistance is futile.

A Headstrong Lady

A Battle-Torn Knight

And A Lesson In Temptation

Twice wed and twice widowed, Lady Caterine Keith has no need for a champion.  She can fend off unwanted suitors on her her and guard her Scottish stronghold without the help of any man.  But her sister, knowing better, sends a make-believe husband – a knight with a battle-scarred face almost too frightening to behold.  Sir Marmaduke Strongbow has a secret ambition.  He wants not Caterine’s land, but her hand in marriage and her heart to own.  With tantalizing caresses, he will show her how a real champion lays siege… and how love is impossible to fight.

So, I've recently been introduced to Sue-Ellen Welfonder's books. Her latest review, To Love a Highlander, I loved and reviewed it HERE... so this book is part of my "I wish I read but I haven't read it list" Still, I think the premise is highly interesting, and worth taking a look. So there ya go! :D

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 Now this sounds like a very wild read. And very Scottish! I haven't read Sue-Ellen's works yet but have seen a lot of her books, like her recent one.

  2. I love that Sue-Ellen is really devoted to writing Scottish HRs -- this one sounds very interesting, but her hero's name is a bit ... unusual. I wonder if he has a nickname in the story. ;-)

  3. I'm interested in the agenda of the hero mentioned in the book blurb. The heroine thinks he's there for her land when in fact he's using that as an excuse to get closer to her and that he's really after her heart. Aww... swoon... :)

  4. I've never heard of this author before so I'll have to check her out. I will admit I giggled when reading the hero's name (Marmaduke)...

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I loved this book!!! This author does some great highlander romances, and I really have enjoyed her writing style and I feel like her books have only gotten better. But I do love her older titles too. I am working on reading the rest of this series. Happy Reading! :)
