Happy November! Lady Katherine's Conundrum will be released November 13, so mark your calendars.
Set up: As you will recall from Lady Katherine's Comeuppance, Lady Katherine was devastated by the fact that her friend, Lady Lorena Arnold, abandoned her when she needed her most. In this snippet, Thomas and Katherine discuss the matter again.
“She shall not be forgiven, her disloyalty showed her true character and I, for one, do not wish to be associated with women of that ilk.”
She huffed. “Honestly, do not Americans speak English? It means type, people like her. I do not want anyone to believe that I am her friend because she was no friend to me.” Katherine harrumphed, crossed her arms and stared out the window of the carriage, anger warring with the sadness and hurt she still bore, but would never acknowledge, over the betrayal by her friend.
“I think you miss your friend,” Thomas said.
Katherine turned on him. “Well, you are sorely mistaken, my lord, because I do not miss her any more than I miss having a cold or stubbing my toe.”
“Odd that you did not include spankings in that list.”
