It’s 1813, and ten lords a leaping will change Caroline’s life forever…
Caroline Fitzroy knows she will never be happier than this moment: when Dr. Stuart Walsingham proposes marriage. She won’t tell her parents it was while they were in bed together. After all, Stuart is loved and trusted by her family; a dependable, handsome, charming young man.
What Stuart doesn’t know is that he’s the heir to the Earl of Cheshire. An elderly man visiting London for the first time to reveals himself to Stuart and his new betrothed.
It’s all to be announced at Caroline and Stuart’s engagement ball – but as ten lords a leaping start dancing, a sudden heart attack changes everything. Stuart is the new Earl of Cheshire – and earls don’t marry untitled ladies with no connections nor fortune to speak of. Not with the earldom in thousands of pounds worth of debt.
Caroline must leap at any chance she has to convince Stuart to stay with her – and Stuart must resist leaping into bed with Caroline at every opportunity…
