Summary

Enthralled with a lavish wedding, the town gossips flourish until the specter of a long-deceased spirit intervenes. Based loosely on a true crime story from the turn of the nineteenth century in New England, this novel uncovers a simple truth of humanity-from the well-off to the working class, everyone falls victim to the transience of joy and the struggles of human nature.

    After her father dies in a riding accident, Gina Borne's mother loses the will to live and soon follows her husband to the grave. Not only is Gina grief-stricken – aged just 18, she faces a miserable, lonely life in the gloomy shadow of her pious uncle, who's known as "The Preaching Peer". Seeking escape, she successfully applies for a job as "companion" to the Earl of Ingleton's sickly seventeen-year-old ward, Lady Alice Hanbury.
    It seems as though the spectre of Death is still stalking her when she finds herself at the ancient Ingle Priory, haunted by the spirits of a white lady, tortured prisoners and a crying child. Even her new charge, Lady Alice, seems to be at death's door – and Gina realises that an evil housekeeper is slowly draining Alice of life with daily doses of poison. It seems too far-fetched to be true – surely the Earl, kindly as he is, will never believe her… Plagued by ghosts in the night, Gina strives to save her new friend from this slow, cold death as she clings to the hope that blossoming friendship and the light of love will chase all this darkness away.

    So she and her Nanny set sail for England and her father promises to follow soon.
    On board ship she meets Billie Baxter, the Conductor of a popular band, who has been a great success in America and is now returning home.
    He is upset because his pianist has been taken ill and so they cannot play for the passengers, which would mean special terms for them on the ship.

    However, when the ship docks at Southampton, the pianist has to go straight to hospital and the band is due to play at the magnificent stately home of the handsome Duke of Stonebury the following evening and one of his guests is to be the Prince of Wales.
    Once again Georgina agrees reluctantly to help Billie Baxter.
    What happens when she arrives at the Duke's beautiful house and how unexpectedly she finds the real love she is seeking is told in this romantic story by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    After an evening dinner with renowned French ballet dancer and beauty, Nicole de Prêt, handsome young buck about town, the Marquis of Sarne, is stirred from a deep sleep to realise that he has been drugged and then rendered unconscious.
    And he is in a strange bed in a strange house somewhere in London. 
    Far worse though is the revelation that in his stupor someone has married him to some young servant girl he does not even know by his bitter enemy, Lord Kirkhampton. 
    To avoid the likely scandal and humiliation that his predicament will bring him, he decides to take his 'bride' to his house in Grosvenor Square and there to arrange a divorce as best he can.
    But soon he realises that this girl was not a willing participant in Lord Kirkhampton's deceitful trick nor is she the plain servant girl he had assumed at first. 
    In fact Romana Wardell is startlingly beautiful and attractive, remarkably intelligent and every bit as appalled by their situation as he is. 
    Then the more that the reluctant newlyweds become acquainted, the less the urgency they feel to put this forced 'marriage' to an early end. 
    Perhaps after all she has the makings of a Marchioness of Sarne!
