One misunderstanding. One dance. But can it all lead to a lifetime of love?
When Susanne Seymore, the only child of the Duke of Somerset, was saved from the advances of an old spice-monger by the handsome, highly desirable, and single Earl of Wessex, she had hoped that it might be the start of a lasting relationship. Yet, a year had passed and Susanne—to her dismay—had not set eyes on the dashing Lord Wessex again. But… all was about to change with a hastily written letter, a forged signature, and her father’s seal.
Once the plan was in motion, Susanne, with the help of her best friend Clarissa and her cousin Jenelle, embarked on a spirituous adventure to secure an invitation to the queen’s ball, where Lord Wessex was said to be searching for a betrothed, in the hopes of catching the earl’s eye for a second time.
As Susanne’s confidence wavers time and time again, she begins to doubt her worth in the eyes of Lord Wessex. In fact, he seems to have taken more interest in her artistic, free-spirited cousin Jenelle than in herself. As the weeks pass, Susanne learns that while beauty can be a physical trait, it is compassion and love for others that truly matter, and once someone sees the beauty inside a person, love cannot be denied.
