The Heart’s Companion by Holly Newman


They say, "Love conquers all," but with loves destroyed and lives damaged by vicious lies, will the Devil's Disciple and The Ice Witch share a passion strong enough to conquer rumor's power?

Miss Jane Grantley—society dubbed her the Ice Witch, London’s most elusive debutante. Janes calm self-assurance and cool green gaze intimidated all but the most calculating of suitors. She scoffed at the many scheming designs on her virtue—and her dowry. Jane swore never to marry for any reason but love. With relief, she left London at the end of the season and settled at her sister’s house with her companion to provide a steady hand to her young nephews while her sister and husband were out of the country.  She had just begun to relax and appreciate the rural environment when she learned the Earl of Royce, nicknamed The Devil’s Disciple, had returned to his neighboring ancestral property to see what could be salvaged from years of neglect.

Royce was all Jane loathed in a man. He was a rake, responsible for the ruin of innocent ladies—if the countless rumors about him were to be believed. Jane planned to undo the rogue once and for all, but it appeared Royce had plans of his own.

The Devil’s Disciple refused to live up to his society nickname; instead, he played the perfect gentleman until even the Ice Witch found her reserves melting.

Book Length:
Historical 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.
