These characters are the property of Disney and Terry Goodkind (the main characters, that is) .Author's notes:
This is my first story composed of "chapters." The time period is 1066. Our 1066, not any time period that may belong to the books or the television series.
In this setting, the Midlands and D'Hara are medieval kingdoms (known as England in modern times). Update note
: I had most of this chapter written since 2014 and 2015, but my laziness and lack of enthusiam kept me from updating. Then work got in the way. Today, though, while off from work for a second week in a row and watching some Cara clips on YouTube, I decided: "Let me go ahead and update this story." I had to spend a few hours adding more to the update and tweaking things, but it was worth it.Summary: The Lord
: Lady Cara Mason would have never predicted that her hot-headed twin brother would be so selfish as to put her in this position — to where she must not only assume his identity but his marriage as well — but, alas, here she is. Looking every bit the part and awaiting his bride. All of this while he attends to "urgent matters." All of this to save their lands. Cara only hopes that it's worth it. She hasn't had much "experience" with women, though she has "dabbled," and is quite sure that she would have been better off had a certain male appendage been appointed her life-mate than the woman she will soon meet.The Lady:
If there's one thing Lady Kahlan Amnell knows, it's that she's not attracted to men. Not sexually. Not generally. So it is not in any way forgivable that her father, Wyborn, King of the Midlands, guilt-trips her into marrying none other than the enemy, Cal, Earl of D'Hara, to unite their feuding kingdoms and to hopefully defeat the invading Normans. But as Kahlan makes an attempt to find some common ground with "Cal," it may be commonalities with Cara she finds instead.Chapter 1 (if you need to start from the beginning, need to catch up, or just refresh your memory). Read Chapter 3 here.
