I held her in my arms, so very grateful to have this wonderful woman in my life.

With some clever thinking she had solved all of our problems. We would marry just as society dictated we should but we would be free to live our lives in a way that made us all happy.

She could be with her true love. She could have a family with my illegitimate half-brother and their children would inherit the title and lands from both our families.

And I could live my days in my scholarly pursuits and my nights with my stable manager

Well, well, a win-win scenario for everybody, but oh what a house of cards they have a built. This snippet could very easily be turned into one very hot story.

Cyril, you done good - real good.
