As the sun sets on the horizon, a hush falls over the sprawling estate. The servants retire to their quarters, and the lord of the manor is left to his own devices. He stands at his window, gazing out at the rolling hills and dense forests that surround him.
He has everything a man could want: wealth, power, and a position of authority over all those beneath him. But there is one thing he craves above all else, and it is the thing that he can never have: the love of his young and gorgeous ward.
She is a creature of grace and refinement, with skin as fair as alabaster and hair that falls in golden cascades down her back. At every turn, she evokes in him an intense and primal desire, a yearning that can’t be sated.
For years, he has fought against these feelings, but tonight they are too strong to withstand. He makes his way down the hallway to her chambers, his heart pounding in his chest.
He finds her seated at her vanity, brushing out her hair. She looks up as he enters, her eyes widening in surprise.
“Lord,” she says softly. “What brings you here?”
He moves closer to her, his body brimming with a fierce and untamed desire. “I have come to claim what is mine,” he growls.
She stands up, wrapping her arms carefully around her slender frame. “What are you saying?” she asks, her voice trembling.
He steps closer to her, pinning her against the wall with his body. “I have waited long enough,” he says, his breath hot against her ear. “I will have you, now and forever.”
With that, he captures her lips in a fierce and possessive kiss, his hands roving over her body as he drinks in the taste of her mouth. She moans softly, her own desire for him finally breaking free of the restraints she has kept on it for so long.
He takes her then, with a wild abandon that shatters all of the carefully constructed walls and barriers they have built up between them. He dominates her, his hands and mouth exploring every inch of her skin, driving her to the very brink of madness.
And in those moments of pure and unbridled passion, they both realize that this forbidden love is the only thing that can ever truly satisfy their untamed desires.
