Six Sentence Sunday #3 : Hardly a Stranger Part 3

Six Sentence Sunday #3Welcome to my third Six Sentence Sunday and I’ve chosen my six from just after the duel scene in Hardly a Stranger, with Francis Redding and the Duke of Staines in close proximity. Enjoy!

“And I’m far from good nowadays.” The duke squeezed Francis’s backside. “Ask me to repay you properly when you’ve saved my life again. I’m sure we can come to some mutually pleasurable arrangement.”

Francis sighed. “Only you could proposition someone while you’re bleeding to death.”

Hardly a Stranger

The Duke of Staines has the worst luck in wives and lovers. A widow for fifteen years, Ambrose is busy running his gentleman’s club, snatches pleasure from transient lovers, and relies on Francis Redding to provide intelligent companionship between social engagements. There is only one problem with his relationship with Redding; the man would make the perfect lover, if only he wasn’t a dependant servant.

Life-long footman to the Duke of Staines, Francis Redding, is hardly a stranger to the disappointment of unreachable dreams or the duke’s unorthodox love life. He’s lived in the duke’s shadow for most of his life, trained as a surgeon at his request, too, and has all too frequently kept the duke out of trouble. It’s not a bad life for a farmer’s son, until the duke’s luck runs out.

This story is a steamy regency romance.
