Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition #37



Happy Thursday, everyone!  Zeee here from I Heart Romance hosting this weeks’ Throwback Thursday:  Historical Romance Edition, a feature started by 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.

My pick for this week is The Handmaiden’s Necklace  by Kat Martin, published on January 1, 2006.



BLURB

CAN A NECKLACE HOLD THE POWER TO RIGHT A LOVE GONE WRONG?
Five years ago Rafael, Duke of Sheffield, believed he was betrayed by the woman he loved and the pain haunts him still. When Rafe discovers that he was cruelly tricked, and that Danielle Duval was never unfaithful, he’s desperate to win her back. But Dani is already on a steamer bound for America to marry another man. Impulsively, Rafe follows her and, trapping her in a compromising situation, quickly makes her his wife.

Promising her that with time he can prove his love and win her trust, Rafe presents her with a stunning necklace rumored to hold great power. As much as Dani wants to believe it can right the wrongs of the past, she fears there is one truth it cannot conceal, a truth that could cost her this second chance with Rafe, the only man she has ever loved …


My Thoughts
Second chance love is perhaps one of my favorite romance tropes.  Handmaiden’s Necklace really encapsulates this trope.  As my usual TBT book picks, I have read this book multiple times and it never gets old!  










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

    I love the second chance romances too! The only one that tops that for me is fake mates. I’ve got her on my tbr list. Will add this one to the mix :)

    I’ve never read Kat Martin, but I have copies of her books. Is this a good one to start? It’s part of series, right?
