The Duchess and the Cowboy by Debra Erfert
Pride and Prejudice meets the Wild West A young British duchess fleeing from her husband’s murderer. A widowed American cowboy with a small daughter. Their second chance at love. At twenty-one, Jane Langley the Duchess of Chatham, is too young to be a widow. Her husband’s misguided duel with his ruthless younger brother leaves him dead. The new duke’s menacing threat to Jane—marry him or else—has her fleeing her home to America for safety and an opportunity to where she can buy her own property. Although Jane worries about her new role as a landowner in the Wild West, she wonders if a proper British duchess will be accepted in a land that lacks propriety. Does Carson City have a high society? Or does she become a pioneer woman? Her concerns change the morning she meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy, Mr. Bellamy. Heath Bellamy is no stranger to misery. He lost his wife shortly after their daughter was born, and for the past two winters, the cruel Nevada blizzards killed too many of his ranch’s cattle. They need grass to survive. When a new owner takes over the neighboring big spread, he sees the possibility of the herd grazing on her land. When their relationship turns from friendship to deep affection, they must decide if love is worth risking getting their hearts broken all over again.
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.
