Lord Thayer needed to make a choice and he was finding it hard to do.
He wanted a burst of sunshine in the morning, a sprite in the afternoon, a Lady in the evening, and a wanton at night, but the choices were slim. Were his desires unattainable?
Annalise Coton was to be sold to the highest bidder. She was eighteen, had met her usefulness as a nursemaid to her half-brother, and with no natural parent to protect her from the outcome, she was to go home with the man offering the best price by the close of business today, proposal of marriage optional.
But if the choice were hers, the attractive lord who entered the leather shop was one she would consider. He was obviously used to having his desires met, but there was a gentleness about him that belied the harder, angular exterior. She imagined he would be a strict taskmaster, possibly a ruffian in the marriage bed, but a tender caretaker.
She felt the tingles in her lower regions, and her daydreaming began. If he would only pay her price.
Lord Stephen Thayer needed to find a wife, produce heirs, and meet his first son obligations. However, he had prerequisites that were making a choice difficult, and he would not lower his expectations or standards merely to obtain a bride.
Stephen wasn’t a snob, he had needs, and he wanted a woman who had the same desires as he did but how to find her was the issue. With the London season ended, Stephen prepares to return to his estate stopping to purchase some needed leather and possibly a new pistol. He finds that a new saddle and pistol is not all that is offered at the shops today.
Could the lovely blonde haired sprite with the biting tongue, innocent bravado, and enticing pout be the answer to his dilemma? Would she submit to him in every way to include his discipline?
The choice was his to make and hers to take.
