Daniel Stamfield sent years working for the British Army. He has the ability, as does most members of his family, to be able to detect truth from lies. Now, at his leisure, he is enjoying being a carefree bachelor and indulging in wine, women and wagering. Though he has no title, he is related to an Earl, has property and is pretty much accepted in polite society. Daniel isn’t real comfortable within society though as he is a larger than average man and a bit rough. He’s not a good dancer and has a habit of becoming tongue tied. When someone lies around him, Daniel starts to itch and there are just some places that you can not scratch in public without being asked to leave. When he informed that his mother has come London to launch his younger sister, Susanna and her goddaughter, Corisande Abbott or Corie, Daniel knows that he has to toe the line until they leave which won’t be too soon for him!
