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.

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.
The beautiful Ilena Foringham not only helped her father, who was a senior Member of Parliament, with his speeches but she also assisted Lord Witherington with his.
She had always found him a tremendous bore, but when he eventually proposed marriage to her she knew that this was something that she could not bear and that she could never be happy with him.
As Ilena realised that her parents also wanted her to marry Lord Witherington, she knew that she had no option but to run away.
After visiting an Employment Agency, she was not only given the position of secretary to Lord Henry Brantford, but Mrs. Morton at the Agency gave Ilena the passport belonging to her dead niece so that she could travel under an assumed name to avoid being followed and brought back home ignominiously by Lord Witherington.
When Ilena met Lord Henry on the train to Dover and they set sail from England, she began helping him with a book that he was writing by taking down in shorthand as he was dictating to her.
They were very busy with his book, at the same time enjoying the voyage until they stopped at Rome and to Ilena's horror she saw from the porthole of her cabin Lord Witherington coming aboard the ship.
She managed to keep herself hidden until they stopped at Greece when something very frightening happened to Ilena.
What took place and how she was able eventually to find happiness and the real love that she was seeking is told in this intriguing novel by BARBARA CARTLAND.
