Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #29


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...
Then Came You (Gamblers, #1)
   Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas, published in Jan, 2003
Amazon

Blurb:
Reckless and wild, beautiful Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society and in breaking any rule to flaunt her independence. Now she′s determined to rescue her sister from an undesirable marriage to the ruthless Alex Raiford, the arrogant Earl of Wolverton. She succeeds in rescuing her sister, but in the meantime Alex decides that Lily must be his. He has resolved to make her pay dearly for her interference—with her body, her soul... and her heart.

I've been on a Lisa Kleypas marathon lately and started with this book, which I heartily enjoyed because of all the scenes with Derek Craven...and also because the aristocratic hero, for once, willingly asks to marry the heroine who would have agreed to become his mistress. How's that for a change? :D 

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