At least before settling down to playing lord of the manor he had enjoyed a brief vacation. Which was how he had met Eloise… . The sexy American had walked into his life and out again just as quickly… .Only now the real surprise at Ace's party was one of the guests – Eloise. Far from being an ordinary tourist, Eloise was none other than international sex symbol Lois Shelton… and Lois had another secret she was determined to keep. She was having his baby!
