"You cannot go to that house."
I glanced across the table at my brother. I had never seen such fear on his face. His eyes were wide, his jaw tense. He ran his hands through his hair.
"Jon is right. If you were caught, it could mean the gallows for you," added my father.
"Then I will have to make sure I'm not."
"But, Nicole, it's Lord Sandford's house. You've heard the rumors about him?" It was my sister-in-law who now placed her hand on top of mine.
"Who's to say they are true?"
"I have spoken with women who have...well, you know, have been seduced by him."
My sister-in-law, despite being a married woman, had always been shy about speaking of matters of the flesh.
"Lord Sandford as far as I know has never seduced a woman who wasn't a willing participant," I said.
"But, Nicole, there is your reputation...should you be caught seen in his bedroom."
I have never told my family, but I lost my innocence three years ago and have taken two more lovers since. We are a poor family, and the chances of me marrying a lord or a duke are nonexistent. In fact, the odds of someone making an offer for me are fair at best, so I felt I couldn't wait to experience sex. I had nothing to lose by being bedded by the first man who showed an interest in me. "It is settled. I shall go to Lord Sandford's house, break in, and retrieve the pearl necklace."
"I cannot let you do this," said my brother, slamming his fist down on the table. "It's all my fault. I was foolish enough to lose it in that game."
"And stupid to take the real pearls instead of the replica," added my father.
An argument was brewing, and that would not help our situation.
"Enough," I said, slamming my own fist down. "Lady Hornsby will not be calling for her necklace for another two days, so that gives me time to go to Lord Sandford's house to retrieve it."
My father and brother both opened their mouths to speak at the same time.
"I will be careful. I will not get caught, and even if I do, I am sure Lord Sandford, with his reputation for members of the opposite sex, can be charmed and sweet talked into looking the other way."
My father put his hand on top of mine. "You will promise me you will not be foolish enough to allow him to bed you."
"Of course not, Papa."
I'd crossed my fingers as I'd made that vow to my father. The rumor mill was ripe with stories of Lord Sandford's escapades with the ladies. Once fucked by him, a woman was ruined for life--not because of her tarnished reputation, but other men no longer could excite her in the bedroom. It was said his cock hung almost to his knees and he knew exactly how to use it to please a woman.
I did not want to be caught, but somehow the prospect of Lord Sandford having his wicked way with me excited me like never before.
