I had fun revising and adding some new twists to some of my previous chapters of Courting Cassandry this week. Here is a small sampling of some of the new sentences I've added to the mix. (Along with my weekly character list.)
Gerolt: My 50-something hero
Cassandry: My 40-something heroine
Aveline: Gerolt's late wife
Antony: Cassandry's late husband
Sir Ingram: One of Gerolt's knights
Sir Owen: Another of Gerolt's knights
Rauffe: Gerolt's teenaged son
Monday: Perhaps he had fashioned memories that had never been real, out of the loneliness he had felt with Aveline.
Tuesday: The news had begun to bind her and Antony’s hearts together again, so much so that she had begun to feel a long buried flicker of hope inside her.
Wednesday: The child in her wanted to fling herself into the familiar shelter of Gerolt’s embrace, and for once, the proud widow and angry, betrayed woman nearly let her.
Thursday: She fixed her gaze on Sir Ingram, the feather in his cap dancing merry on the breeze as he mounted a bay horse. If she did not stare somewhere else, Gerolt would see her sudden, deep awareness of him.
Friday: (Gerolt speaking:) “Sir Owen’s judgment is above reproach. I have only asked him to share a bit of advice with Rauffe.”
