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...
The Lady's Tutor by Robin Schone
Originally Published in 1999
Married young to a man hand-picked by her father, Elizabeth Petre is an ideal Victorian lady. She has borne two sons and endured sixteen years of selfless duty in a passionless marriage. Craving a man's loving touch yet loyal to her wedding vows, Elizabeth is determined to seduce her coldly indifferent husband. She knows of only one man who can teach her the erotic secrets of love.
The bastard son of an English Countess and an Arab Sheik, Ramiel Devington was reared to embrace both Western culture and Eastern pleasure. Scorned by society and challenged by prim Elizabeth's request, he undertakes her her instruction in the art of sexual delight. But when the lessons become a temptation neither can resist, Elizabeth is forced to choose between obligation and a bold, forbidden passion...
My first experience with erotic romance. I was pleasantly surprised at how steamy the love scenes were and how well the steam worked in the overall storyline. Elizabeth and Ramiel were wonderfully developed characters and I need to re-read this again.
