Lady Cadoret's Longing
But in the transporting of my "stuff" from one house to the other, I've found the beginnings of a new story. Actually, the beginning, middle, backstory, and almost the end of another short story -- Lady Cadoret's Longing.
Lady Dorcas Cadoret has been in a few of my short stories. She's the pretty lady no man wants to speak with because all she talks about is her cat. I felt bad for her, I thought for sure the Earl of Greenleigh would have seen through her feline fancy, but alas, he found his true love in Lady Ryder.
It's come to my attention (through the sheer physical exhaustion of my days) that Lady Dorcas Cadoret is not as shallow as most people think. She's lost someone very dear to her heart and has never found another to take his place. Hence all the cat talk. She doesn't want to be bothered looking for someone new. She'd rather remain loyal to her one true love than find someone else.
Her mother has other plans. And so does Lady Olivia. Only problem is, I have no idea who is going to sweep her off her feet. The man has not come to me, or to her yet. I'll let you know when he does.
Also, in case you wanted to stop by, I will be guest posting on Romantic Friday Writers today -- my topic -- historical research. This is a brief overview of something I'm trying to put together on this blog over the next couple of weeks -- breaking down historical research into palpable bite size pieces. Hope to see you.
