    The handsome Viscount Trent finally makes up his mind to accede to the pleadings of his family and get married.
    	He is twenty-seven and for a long time they have been begging him to take a wife and produce an heir to his illustrious title, his famous stately home and his vast estate.
    	On the whole he finds debutantes extremely boring and has enjoyed a number of affaires-de-coeur with older married women.
    	However there is one girl, Marigold Marlow, he considers outstanding and she is the acknowledged great beauty of the Season.
    	As she is so beautiful, the Viscount is convinced that Marigold will make him a perfect wife, but he is astonished when, having proposed to her, she tells him that she has not quite made up her mind.   She will let him know on Wednesday if she accepts his proposal of marriage.
    	As the Viscount expects her to fall immediately into his arms, he is surprised, but content to wait until Wednesday for her answer, which he is certain will be ‘yes’.
    	As he drives away from Marigold’s house, a young girl holding a white Pekingese in her arms begs him to give her a lift to London.
    	He sees no reason to refuse and finds as they drive off that she is Salvia, a cousin of the beautiful Marigold.
    	He then learns that Marigold has her eyes on the son of the Duke of Northerncliff, who is seriously ill.  In fact if he dies as expected, she intends to marry his heir as one day soon he will be a Duke.
    	Feeling surprised and angry, he is even more astonished to learn that Marigold is cruel to animals and that Salvia is running away because she is so unkind to her dog as well as to her.
    	How the Viscount dreams up a way to avenge himself on Marigold and, if the Duke does recover, how he can escape marrying her as he has now changed his mind.
    	How the Viscount’s plan succeeds.
    	And how Salvia takes London by storm, faces appalling danger and finally finds the love of her life is all told in this unusual story by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    With her aging grandfather on his deathbed and not expected by his doctors to live for more than two or three months, it comes as little comfort to the beautiful Gytha Sullivan that he has made her the heiress to his considerable fortune.
    What is much worse is Sir Robert Sullivan's fear that she will be seduced by some 'smarmy fortune-hunter', who will squander her inheritance.
    And this deep concern of his makes him insist that she marries one or other of her two loathsome cousins, Vincent and Jonathan, who will do anything to take his fortune for themselves.
    Desperate to escape from this terrible fate, Gytha goes to visit the Master of the neighbouring estate, the dashingly handsome Lord Locke, whose life her father once saved in the War against Napoleon, and beseeches him to, in turn, save her by becoming engaged to her, thereby making a forced marriage to either of her cousins impossible.
    Appalled by the poor girl's plight his Lordship agrees much to the anger of Gytha's family and his exotic lover the entrancing Princess Zuleika.
    Little does Lord Locke know that, as he gains a false fiancée, he is truly about to lose his heart!
