Crown of Dreams by Kimberly Cates
A bright future… With Devlin Chastain's wedding to the Honorable Braden Tracey a mere two weeks away, she has everything to look forward to. That is until her scapegrace childhood nemesis, Lord Myles Farringdon, returns home to announce that he has joined Bonnie Prince Charlie’s cause. Devlin will do anything to get him to leave—especially after the blackguard kisses her—even if it means helping him escape as the dragoons arrive to arrest him. A dark lord… Myles Farringdon hadn’t intended on branding Devlin a traitor, but in her haste to be rid of him, she was seen by the king’s soldiers. Knowing she’ll be hanged if she is caught, he drags her onto his horse and rides with her to Scotland. A perilous journey… From the court of Prince Charles, to the crushing defeat at Culloden Moor, and to the search for a legendary Jacobite crown, Devlin and Myles face danger and betrayal, losing hope along the way, and nearly losing each other.
Book Length: Novel - 150-320 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
