Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #24



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...
Lady Of The Knight
   Lady of the Knight by Jackie Ivie, published in 2004
Amazon| 
                              
Blurb:
A passionate, emotional, action-packed story set against the violent and volatile backdrop of 14th-century Scotland. When her family is wiped out by Clan FitzHugh, Morganna KilCreggar makes a vow to gain justice. Tall, fit, and a weapons expert with formidable skill and perfect aim, Morganna becomes the "lad" Morgan and squire to her enemy, Alexander, the youngest FitzHugh. When desire breaks through Morgan's secret and she and Zander becomes lovers, he surprises her by surpassing all her dreams.

I came across this book when I searched for historical romance with gender bender themes, and this one is a great gender bender. The heroine, Morganna, is SO good with weaponry that she becomes the champion, besting all other warriors, and the lovers part doesn't occur until 65-70%, though by then the hero offered to end his own life because he couldn't keep his hands off the "lad." LOL. Poor guy. It's a humorous story.

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

  1. LOL That short review was too hilarious! But it sounds just like Johanna Lindsey's book Warrior's Woman

  2. I've only read a few gender-bender romances. The one that stands out in my memory is Jude Deveraux's The Conquest. ^_^

  4. I do love this style of story. They are always fun to read. Lynn Kurland did a good Gender bender theme story as well. I have read from this author once, and I didn't really like the book. It could have just been me and I would like to try her out a second time to see if the first time was a fluke, and this sounds like something that would be good for "round two". Thanks for sharing.

  5. Aww, poor guy. LOL. Sounds like a riot with the set-up and such a kick-ass heroine :)
