THROWBACK THURSDAY-HISTORICAL ROMANCE EDITION (21)

Happy Thursday, everyone! This is a new feature hosted by Buried Under Romance and Love Saves the World.

What is Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition?
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.  Since Tin and Mary C. are unapologetic lovers of historical romances, they've decided to focus on this beloved genre.

Here are the rules:
1. It must be posted on a Thursday.
2. It must be a historical romance novel published before October 2008.


THIS WEEK I AM FEATURING...

His Every Kiss (Guilty, #2) 
His Every Kiss
by Laura Lee Guhrke
Originally Published: September 2004

Everyone knows about Dylan Moore—his brilliant talent and his pleasure-seeking ways—but no one knows the torment that lies beneath his reckless veneer. Only one woman gets a glimpse of the forces that drive Dylan's soul, a woman who haunts his dreams and evokes his passions as no other woman ever has before.

Disgraced and destitute, Grace Cheval wants nothing to do with the seductive man who desires her. When Dylan offers her a position as governess to his newfound daughter, she knows his true intentions are dishonorable. Yet she finds this charismatic man hard to resist, and she returns his passionate kisses with a fire that matches his own. Can Dylan dare hope that this proud, spirited beauty will melt the ice around his heart? 


*************
I loved this book because of the musician hero who suffers from tinnitus and how he learns to deal with his situation.  LLG is great at writing characters who aren't aristocrats with Dylan and Grace being some of my favorites.  I read this years ago and need to do a re-read soon.

  1. Oh interesting combo for a hero. I've been looking for a new one of hers to try to see if it works for me. I'll add this to the list :)

    1. I liked this one though it isn't my favorite LLG. I definitely recommend her Girl Bachelors series if you want a good idea of her writing style. The first book is And Then He Kissed Her which takes place in late 19th century England. The heroine works as a secretary for a publisher (the hero). Thanks for the comment!

  2. I loved this book! Have you read Grace Burrowes's The Virtuouso? Her hero, Valentine, plays the piano! ^_^

    1. I haven't read any of Burrowes's books yet, but I have a few on my e-reader. I'll have to check out The Virtuoso...I love musically inclined heroes. Very swoon-worthy to me! Thanks for commenting.
