Online PR News – 23-April-2021 – United States – Fiction author Patricia M. Muhammad has published her third historical romance novel.
Historical romance novels are nothing new in the Western literary landscape. Some devour these books for the escape to an era of old, where pageantry, decadence and the demur collide. Others read them expecting a surprising plot to unravel as romance permeate the storylines. Yet there is a common thread that historical romance novels seek to provide the reader with--entertainment. Whether the novel is set in the grand house of an aristocrat or involves the king and queen of a country, let's be candid, usually it is England, readers hope to be temporarily transported from the current reality of their lives. This is likely why historical romance novels remain a commercially viable source of literature. Some may ask, why another historical romance novel? Just as any other form of fiction, there is always a story to be told and a potential reader who will enjoy it.
Ardor’s Prestige is a historical romance novel set in 18th century Venice city-state. It involves Duchessa Anastasia who steals away from her esteemed House in the middle of the night. She arrives in an area near a thoroughfare. The duchessa assumes that she is alone as she contemplates what is next for her aristocratic life. However, her thoughts are disrupted when a handsome courtier appears. They question each other as to why they are present, easily noting each other’s status. Both are reluctant to divulge details of their identity. Duca Leandro escorts her home, promising not to remember where she lives. The duchessa’s family leave for an extended stay elsewhere, leaving Anastasia, who is of age, alone–but she isn’t. Giorgio, her devoted cavalier servante and a senior servant of the house keep close watch of her. She is intrigued by Duca Leandro. They begin a courtship. One day Giorgio is abruptly apprehended at the house of which he serves by royal authorities by order of the Crown for treason. He, seeing that his hopes of having Anastasia in his life has ultimately become nil, is too weak to deny the charges levied against him. The duchessa is repulsed by Giorgio but she is also sympathetic. She, however, upholds her courtship with the duca. Giorgio is eventually cleared. The Crown holds a grand gathering. It is the season of Carnevale. A near murder takes place. Duchessa Anastasia realizes that a conspiracy to disrupt her life originates closer to her than she anticipated.
