The Poet and The Paragon by Rita Boucher


A decade has passed since Rebecca Creighton was jilted at the altar at 17 and she has resigned herself to spinsterhood and the task of keeping her spendthrift family afloat. Her lectures and popular penny tracts have made “doing the Creighton” synonymous with proper behavior. But when mayhem breaks out during one of her speaking engagements in a disreputable part of London, she is saved by a seductive stranger.
Sir Michael Fairgrove knew that his best friend, Ollie narrowly escaped the parson’s mousetrap years ago. Now Ollie’s only hope to avoid Fleet is marriage to his former fiancé, Rebecca Creighton. But Michael’s plan to persuade her to accept his friends suit soon goes horribly awry. When he rescues Rebecca from a raucous mob and they face the dangers of a late-night London riven by unrest, Michael finds his good intentions fading in the face of growing fascination. Rebecca is far from the plain-faced, pompous paragon that Michael had been led to expect. How can he persuade Rebecca to agree to Ollie’s offer when Michael finds himself falling in love with the Paragon?

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.
