10,000 WORD SHORT STORY!
Love cannot survive without trust in full measures.
Five years ago, when Lord Faulkner returned from the Napoleonic War to find Scarlet Cason had abandoned him, he vowed to never trust another woman. He made a life for himself taking dangerous commissions until six months ago when he gave up that life to raise his sisters after their parents' sudden death. Now tragedy has struck again, and Scarlet's mother is gravely ill.
Scarlet is shocked when Faulkner tracks her down and tells her the news of her mother. She anxiously accompanies him to Murdock Castle, the very place they fell in love, and the home she fled years ago to hide a dark secret. She prays going back will not expose it.
The more days Scarlet and Faulkner spend together, the more they realize they are still in love. When Scarlet's secret is revealed, only time will tell if they can restore their faith in each other. But they are out of time when Faulkner's treacherous past threatens - they must completely trust one another or die.
Rescuing Lord Faulkner ~ Short story ~ is the 4 installment of the Regency Redemption Series. All the others in the series are full-length books.
