He’s willing to trade his daughter.
Good. She’s exactly what I want in my life.
The bastard shouldn’t have stolen from me.
It’s not an unreasonable request, but at this point, I’m glad he did.
I come from old money and lots of it.
And my business is in need of some numbers help.
The thief’s beautiful daughter fits the bill beautifully.
But the innocent girl does far more than help me get the business in line.
She wakes me up at night, has me pacing the floor, and drowns me in the desire to focus on so much more than work.
I’ve not loved or lusted in a long time, but there’s something about her.
Whether I want her to or not, she’s causing my blood to burn.
I’ll never give her back.
Not even when the debt is paid.
