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...
Highland Destiny by Hannah Howell
Originally Published in January 2006
When destiny brought Sir Balfour Murray and his wounded brother down the same road as Maldie Kirkaldy, she offered her services as a nurse even as she tried to deny the desire this dark-eyed knight had ignited at first sight. Soon they discover that they both share a mission of vengeance, but Maldie cannot tell him her true identity—to do so would brand her a spy...
Sworn to avenge his family as chief of the Doncoill Clan, Balfour vows to destroy his greatest foe, Beaton of Dubblinn, with Maldie at his side. Yet Balfour knows that he can no more afford to trust her than he can ignore his lust for his sultry beauty. Now, he is not only determined to unearth her deepest secrets, but also to pursue his passion for her. And nothing will stand in his way.
This is the first book in the epic Murray Family series which is at 19 books and counting. I have read and loved almost of all of these, but (for some reason) I haven't read how it all started. I do own a copy of this and will read it sometime. :)
