Promise of a Highlander by Katy Baker
They will cross time to find each other. Emilia Shaw’s life is unraveling. She’s lost just about everything. Her family’s company, her reputation as an engineer, and every shred of confidence she had left. Now all she has is guilt. So when a strange old woman invites her to step through an archway and escape her life, Emilia agrees. Little does she know that it will catapult her into the medieval Highlands—and an angry mob that want her dead. Rescued by Ross MacAuley, a troubled warrior, all Emilia wants is to escape this perilous time and return home. But as her fate becomes more and more tangled with Ross’s, she begins to realize that there might be a reason for her to stay. If she can figure out the truth of his search for the Fae, and help him face the demons of his past, the enigmatic warrior might hold the key to redeeming her soul and healing her heart.
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.
