Damn it all. He missed bloody Redding on his days off. He never got into scrapes like this when his servant was around. Lord Silas would never have approached him if Redding had been in attendance last night. That’s it, his days off are cancelled.

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.

  1. Glad you found this part funny. Ambrose was a fantastic character to write.

    Karysafaire – Ambrose would argue that he has no need to grow up. He doesn’t like to be serious all the time, even if he is a duke. LOL
