Beschrijving

Valeria Montford is beautiful, proud and romantic. When she meets the reticent Lord Waterford in

France, everything goes wrong and she hates him for making her feel humiliated.

Then she meets Sir Peter Cousins – devastatingly handsome, he is much more exciting and appears strongly attracted to her.

Back in England, Valeria‘s beloved father tells her that a cad has defrauded him of his fortune and that she is his only chance of escaping penury. The rich Lord Waterford has offered to marry her and free him from his debts.

Valeria is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She would do anything for her Papa, but the idea of marriage to Lord Waterford definitely does not appeal in any way. Lord Waterford suggests that she helps him restore his Castle where she unexpectedly meets Sir Peter and he kisses her passionately.

All too soon she suspects Lord Waterford has a secret, Sir Peter and Lord Waterford come to blows and Valeria‘s heart is thrown into confusion. In London for Queen Victoria‘s Diamond Jubilee, disaster strikes. Just as Valeria comes to understand the true nature of love, it seems that

she has lost all chance of happiness.

What then happens is told in this enthralling and romantic novel by BARBARA CARTLAND.



Barbara Cartland was the world‘s most prolific novelist who wrote an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no less than 644 were romantic novels with worldwide sales of over 1 billion copies and her books were translated into 36 different languages. As well as romantic novels, she wrote historical biographies, 6 autobiographies, theatrical plays and books of advice on life, love, vitamins and cookery. She wrote her first book at the age of 21 and it was called Jigsaw. It became an immediate bestseller and sold 100,000 copies in hardback in England and all over Europe in translation. Between the ages of 77 and 97 she increased her output and wrote an incredible 400 romances as the demand for her romances was so strong all over the world. She wrote her last book at the age of 97 and it was entitled perhaps prophetically The Way to Heaven. Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States where in 1976 her current books were at numbers 1 & 2 in the B. Dalton bestsellers list, a feat never achieved before or since by any author. Barbara Cartland became a legend in her own lifetime and will be best remembered for her wonderful romantic novels so loved by her millions of readers throughout the world, who have always collected her books to read again and again, especially when they feel miserable or depressed. Her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissful happy endings and above all for her belief that the power of love is more important than anything else in everyone‘s life."
