The only surviving son of a poor American farmer, Leander Mayfield is shocked to learn that he is in fact the new Earl of Dearborne. Barely recovered from one of the many illnesses that have plagued him all his life, he sets sail for England and a new life.
Tired and bored with all the wealth and finery that constantly surrounds him, Julien Sutcliffe, the Earl of Blackstone, is constantly on the lookout for something to lift his ennui. Then he meets the young American Earl, whose naiveté he finds refreshing and new.
Drawn to each other, it actually begins to seem as though they might be able to enjoy a happy life in each other’s company, but something -- or someone -- is determined to separate them permanently.

Strength of Character Prevails!
The Leander & Julian love story is full of intrigue, rumors, sexy times and romance! I love this historical tale of the bedridden, farmer, turn aristocrat Leander Mayfield and the cynical, arrogant, jaded peer of the realm Julien Sutcliffe. This story has everything to keep you interested: greed, subterfuge, a missing heir, murder, heartbreak, kidnapping, shipwrecks, survival, and love.
I plan on reading more books from this author!
