Summary

Wealthy, popular and famously handsome and dashing, Draco, the Duke of Atherstone has the world and most of its Society beauties at his feet. 
Yet, as his arrives on his yacht in Algiers he is dissatisfied. If only he could find the woman who would complete the other of him – as has his wise and supremely contented Russian friend, Nicholas Vlastov. 
Visiting what appears to be a slave market in the Kasba, the Duke notices that among the drugged girls being callously auctioned is a beautiful young waif who is utterly different from the rest – and when she whispers, “save me!”, he knows that she in English and that he must rescue her. 
So begins his and Selina’s flight from the evil slavers to Monte Carlo, then from murderous kidnappers who hold them for ransom and then from the Society beauty determined to claim the Duke in marriage. 
Not once, but twice, the dashing Duke puts his life on the line to save Selina, as he falls wholeheartedly in love for the very first time.
But how, Selina wonders desperately, can a noble Duke, possibly marry a girl he has found in a harem?

    The Honourable Richard Brooke, the younger son of the Earl of Grandbrooke becomes a close friend of Prince Ivan of Karlova.
    The Prince however does not use his title as he is incognito.  He is therefore known as Ivan Sazon.
    As is usual in Aristocratic families, Richard, as the second son is ordained and is then appointed to a Parish in Oxford.
    Prince Ivan is often at his house and it was not long before he falls in love with Richard’s sister Elizabeth, who is very beautiful.
    They marry and are very happy for six years and have one child, whom they christen Tarena.
    Unexpectedly Ivan is called back to Karlova because his father, the King, has died and he has to take his place.  He also learns that he is expected to save Karlova and its adjacent country Dubnik from the Russians, who are determined to annex both countries.
    To do so he has to marry Princess Catrina of Dubnik.
    Shortly afterwards Elizabeth dies and Tarena goes to live with her Uncle Richard.
    Tarena is very happy with her uncle and takes her mother’s place in tending the garden and helping in the Parish.
    Then King Ivan dies and it is a tremendous shock to Tarena to learn that she must go to Karlova, become Queen and marry Prince Igor of Dubnik.
    This will save Karlova from the Russians and she goes with Queen Victoria’s blessing.
    Frightened but convinced that she must follow in her father’s footsteps, Tarena travels to Karlova aboard a British Battleship accompanied by her uncle. 
    How Tarena is taught the language of Karlova by the dashing Count Vladimir in charge of the Escort of Karlovan soldiers on board.
    And how she succeeds in astounding and defying the Russians, at the same time falling in love, is all told in this fast moving tale by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    Dutiful, demure and far lovelier than she knows, Princess Zosina, the eldest daughter of the Archduke Ferdinand of Lützelstein, is reluctantly obedient when her father announces that she must marry King Gyórgy of neighbouring Dórsia in order to create an alliance between the two nations that will defend them against the threat from the German Empire. 
    
    Arriving in Dórsia on a State visit she is greeted by the country’s Regent, a kind, handsome and very considerate Prince. By contrast and much to Zosina’s dismay, her future husband King Gyórgy is as wild and disagreeable as his reputation had suggested. 
    It seems that for the sake of her country she must yield to a life without love – until dramatic events supersede even the power of Kings and the hope is rekindled in the young Princess Zosina’s heart that happiness and true love will triumph after all.

    Although she lives in an elegant and impressive household in London’s prestigious Belgrave Square, young Angelina Medwin’s life is not a very glamorous or romantic one. Most of her time is taken up with caring for her ailing grandmother Lady Medwin and acceding to the demands of her beloved “Lion Pekingese”, which Angelina frequently walks in the Square’s beautiful, secluded and leafy private park. 
    London is buzzing with excitement about the forthcoming Coronation of King Edward VII – and the neighbouring Cephalonian Embassy, aglitter with official brass and braid, is no exception.
    Just before the great event, though, a chance meeting in the square with the dashing young Prince Xenos of Cephalonia, no less, puts her whole life in a spin as she loses her heart utterly to a man who can never marry her. But little does she know, her one hope of true love and happiness lies in the Greek blood that courses in her veins, and which she has always kept secret!

    Small and slight with fair hair the colour of Spring sunshine and china-blue eyes, young Tilda is dismayed that by command of Queen Victoria, because of her Royal connections, she is to marry the Prince of a distant country called Obernia. 
    	Not only has she never met the Prince, she does not want to marry him, as she wishes to marry for love one day and certainly not for political convenience. 
    	In Munich on her way to meet her Prince, Tilda insists on attending a rowdy Beer hall and becomes embroiled in a violent student riot.
    	 But luckily she is rescued by Rudolph, an impossibly handsome dashing stranger, who she had spied on when walking in the woods near King Ludwig’s beautiful Palace, the Linderhof.
    	In their flight from the riots, he is shot by the Police and they take refuge in the home of Frau Sturdel, a local midwife, who helps Tilda to nurse the young man back to health. 
    	Soon Tilda has fallen head over heels in love with Rudolph – and he with her. 
    	But surely their love is doomed unless, somehow, she can extricate herself from her impending Royal mariage de convenance.
