The Reckless Baron


This is a steamy historical romance short story (word count 6,798)
Harriet runs away from her family to be with Robert the Baron, the man she loves and believes will brighten up her life from her current boring existence, and show her the world!
There is only one problem: Robert says he does not feel the same way. He had only promised to whisk her away based on idle chatter and intoxication; he had not meant for her to hold him true to his words. He has no intention of seeking a wife and he certainly does not want to face the brunt of her father and brothers’ anger when they find out Harriet has run away to be with him.
Realising their misunderstanding, Robert and Harriet both finally agree, after much argument, that Harriet must return home and the two must get back to their separate lives.
Their plan to return Harriet all fares well until they are ambushed during their journey by a highwayman. Robert is left temporarily unconscious, but this is not the only drama that unfolds as Harriet and Robert are forced to share a room for the night. Will they now finally give in to their obvious passion for each other?
