You have ruined us all with this mad venture, Caroline! When he escapes – ’ ‘He will not escape,’ Caroline said confidently. Amabelle Levenshulme searched her face. ‘You seem very sure. ’ ‘Joseph is looking after our guest’s needs today. ’ Caroline smiled thinly, remembering his lordship’s unflattering comments as they parted. ‘Hopefully the dear Viscount will be in a better humour when I see him. Such a bad temper, especially considering he has no one but himself to blame. ’ ‘Yes,’ Lady Julia agreed with Amabelle’s question.
