ran his hand through his thick black hair, unfolded his lanky frame
from behind the large mahogany desk, and wandered over to the table
placed against the wall nearest the desk. He picked up a decanter of
whiskey in one hand and two glasses in the other. Though it was late
afternoon, now was as good a time as any to get foxed. It wasn’t as

women queuing up to marry a disgraced duke.” He
poured Norwood a glass full of whiskey and handed it to him. Pouring
one for himself, he drank it down in one swallow before throwing the
glass, slamming the crystal against the hearth. The sound of the

not going to solve anything,” Norwood said, sipping his whiskey. “No,

that’s sad, I’m sure, but how would she be able to help me?” “Her
