The A-Z Challenge Letter C

C is for Captain Richard Gaines. The hero in THE CAPTAIN'S LADY.

Richard is a naval hero who remained with Lord Nelson during his death after the great battle at Trafalgar.

When Richard goes to America, he meets an uncommon woman who captures his heart. His travails through the deep South to find her kidnapped daughter lead him through the travesties of slavery and upon his return to England, he finds he's brought more back from America than he bargained for.

    1. Well, there was Ionn Gryyfudd, but he's too young as Horatio Hornblower, so I'll save him for someone else.

    1. Thanks. I love my heroes. They are sooo gallant and charming. And none of them want to be married. They just can't help themselves.

  5. Nice model for the character, Anne, Russell Crowe or a look-alike?

    I like the premise of the story, especially addressing the issue of slavery. Attitudes can be changed when we see something that jars our 'perfect' world vision.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and I like your own version of the A-Z. It's a good way to get to know something about your writing.

    1. It's Russell. From "Master and Commander, the Far side of the World." Great movie, but very manly, if you know what I mean. I do address slavery in my book and the consequences of what it means to Richard. And thanks. I like your version of the A-Z too. I love Paris and want to go even moreso now.

    1. Thanks Jenn. I have to say, I'm warming to him. I didn't particularly like him at first, but he's grown on me.

  7. Venereal disease? Haha, just kidding, I don't know why that just popped in my head. Really interesting to have America enter the picture and get a foreigner's view on slavery.

    1. LOLOLOL. Especially Richard. He doesn't think about it until he's forced to. And then he finds he has quite a few choices to make.
