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
Knight Triumphant (Graham Saga #4)
Author: Shannon Drake
Release Date: 1 March 2002
After her husband, Lord of Langley, dies from a deadly plague, Englishwoman Igrainia finds herself a prisoner in her own castle, held hostage by Scottish warrior Eric Graham, whose wife and son -- prisoners of Lord Langley -- have also perished there.
To Graham, Igrainia is merely a political pawn, a pretty prize to dangle in front of the English king. But when the king refuses a trade -- Igrainia for the wife of Scotland's ruler Robert the Bruce -- Graham forces her to marry him, though the proud noblewoman would rather rot in her own dungeons than accept one gesture of kindness from her captor.
What Graham never expects is the desire his strong-willed bride stirs in his soul. And when Igrainia discovers the true heart of the fearsome knight, her life -- and loyalties -- will never be the same...
Someone I follow on tumblr was reading this and posting quotes, and it got me very intrigued. I'm not sure about the heroine's name. Igrainia is certainly an unusual choice!
