Darius reluctantly enters a deal to attempt to father a child with a dying man’s wife. After the tragic loss of two sons, William needs an heir to secure the succession and provide for Vivian, his young wife. Such an arrangement isn’t far from Darius’ most profitable activities, where he sells certain services to a duo of lusty but unfulfilled women. Having endured beatings as a child allows him to shut down emotions when a client expects similar behaviour. But Vivian is different. She wants a baby, but not this way. Both are surprised by their growing feelings for each other during a steamy month at Darius’ country estate, where she dotes on his young ward. Those feelings are extremely inconvenient when Vivian must return to her husband. Vivian’s greedy stepfather provides drama as he learns of the affair. Will Darius untangle himself from his clawing clients? Will the baby be safe? Read on.
