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...
A Most Unconventional Match by Julia Justiss
Originally Published in July 2008
Hal Waterman's calling on the newly widowed Elizabeth Lowery is the caring act of a gentleman. And with her household in turmoil and a young son to support, she is certainly grateful for his help. Hal finds Elizabeth even more lovely than when they first met, but knows that she will only ever see him as a kind and often taciturn friend.
Elizabeth finds comfort and companionship in Hal's caring of her. But then a tantalizing desire starts to simmer. His reassuring strength and presence have become so very attractive...so alluring.
Such a sweet story! Hal made me fall in love with him from the beginning with his adorable crush on Elizabeth, his shyness, and his business smarts. I have a thing for big, quiet heroes and Hal definitely fits the bill. I read this quite a few years ago and I don't remember much about Elizabeth, but I do remember liking her. But, Hal is the true star of the story and that was fine with me!
