This is a steamy historical romance short story (word count 6,028)

We are first introduced to Julian when his future is looking very bleak. He has just lost all his estate and worldly possessions to a Mr Carter through several very poor games of cards on his part. Unable to repay all his debts, he fears that he will be punished and sent away to debtor’s jail.

But his day takes on another twist! Mr Carter is prepared to write off all of Julian’s debts to him: all Julian will have to do is marry his daughter, so she as well as his future grandchildren can benefit from the Viscount title.

Julian is very reluctant to fulfil Mr Carter request: the last thing he wants to do is get married to anyone! Unable to find a solution to his predicament, he agrees to meet Mr Carter’s daughter, Helen, but as soon as he sets eyes on her, he is left stunned and captivated by whom he discovers. Could he now be having a change of heart, as Helen shows him that she matches all his desires in more ways than one?
