Throwback Thursday is a new meme hosted by Buried Under Romance and Love Saves The World, and since I just love Historical Romance I decided to participate.
What Is Throwback Thursday? Traditionally, Throwback Thursday celebrates nostalgia, asking participants to post a personal photo or 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.
Here Are The Rules: 1. It must be posted on a Thursday. 2. It must be a historical romance novel published before October 3, 2008
When Lynx de Warenne, Edward Plantagenet’s most prized warrior, invaded Dumfriescastle, he took possession of Jane Leslie’s home–and soon wanted something more from the headstrong lass.

Any child of that union is deemed legitimate. Jane had no choice but to surrender to theinvader’s knowing touch. . . .
Fearless on the battlefield, Lynx was afraid to love. But Jane slowly stole into hisheart. And as the fires of war raged around them, amid treacherous foes and brilliant intrigues, who would have thought that two such unlikely partners would fall in love–or that their breathlesspassion for each other would outlast . . .
