Chloe is one of those Wherlockes who are rumored to have peculiar abilities: to see the truth of the matter. It is her gift that has been preserving the life of one Julian Anthony Charles Kernwood, Earl of Colinsmoor. He seems to have more lives than a cat, but his life is just being saved over and over again by Chloe and her kin.
Chloe has been heavily involved in protecting the lives of Kernwoods. First, when her sister was dying, a baby was left in her arms to die as well, and Chloe vowed to protect the boy babe and his heritage until they can reach his father. Then, when Julian realizes he is being betrayed by his wife and uncle, he visits the lowest stews in London where several attempts were made on his life. Thanks to Chloe he yet lives. Now the worst attempt is made on his life leaving him hanging on by a thread. Julian finds out his heir is alive and well all thanks to Chloe and her family.
They meet and they fight their attraction towards one another. Chloe, because she has never felt this way before, and Julian because he vows never to trust another woman with his heart again. As she is busy nursing him back to health and devising a plan to thwart his uncle's and wife's attacks, Julian finds himself involved in some ungentlemanly behavior, and Chloe craves his touch so much she is letting him!
