From the first time Baron Sedgwick caught a glimpse of Lady Cecily he has done everything he could to make her desire him. His feelings for her go beyond just lust but he can't let her see that he loves her. He knows she would never be the man that her father would choose for her so he does everything in his power to make that happen.
This was such a great short story. Normally I try to stay away from short stories because they always seem to be missing something. Everything is just thrown together so quickly that the story just falls a bit flat for me. I never get a real sense of the characters. Not at all the case with this story. Everything came together so well and the pacing of the story just worked. I won't lie, I do wish there was more but only because I enjoyed it so much and I wanted to spend more time with the characters.
