She is even more shocked when the Earl reveals that he himself is actually her Guardian, the Earl of Staverton. And although he is not the elderly 'stuffed shirt' she expected, he is cold and unfriendly and unimpressed by her stated desire to go to London and become one of the 'Lady-Birds' that she has heard so much about.
She tells the Earl that she wants to enjoy herself and not get married to some boring and stuffy aristocrat. The Earl is horrified at this unseemly and ignorant revelation and tells her so in no uncertain terms.
Determined to dissuade her from a path that would lead her into depravity and danger the Earl insists that she allows him to launch her into Society as a debutante in an effort to marry her off.
But Petrina has very different ideas.
And she resolves to somehow steal his Lordship's heart!
King Martiza of Salamos has fallen asleep when he suddenly becomes aware that something is moving in his room.
To his astonishment he finds that it is Princess Veria who has come for his Coronation which is to take place the very next day.
She, as her father has died, is now ruling the State of Kavolana which is a smaller Balkan country bordering on his.
In a whisper she tells him that she has discovered a plot by her Prime Minister and his Cabinet to drug her so that she is found by them in his bed and then forced to marry her to save her reputation.
The King realises that he has a bad reputation for pursuing beautiful women.
But he has in fact no intention of getting married.
He does, however, know that his Government has always wanted Kavolana to be joined to Salamos to make the two countries more significant together.
It is more important now than at any other time because of the policy of the Russians who are infiltrating the Balkans and taking over every small Kingdom and Principality that they can.
The King helps the Princess to escape from his bedroom in a very unconventional manner.
Then he finds after his Coronation that he becomes involved in the difficulties of her country.
They become friends as each of them realises that the other has no intention of marrying under any circumstances.
The King is fully aware of the danger that their two countries are in.
The Russians then think up a plot to marry Princess Veria to a Russian Prince and take over Kavolana that way.
The King then turns to Queen Victoria for help as Great Britain is
the only country that Russia has no wish to offend or fight.
The King and the Princess save their countries, but they cannot save themselves from their own feelings.
Finally, both the King and the Princess find happiness, which is all told in this unusual romance by BARBARA CARTLAND.
