Although she attracts the attention of many men - including the Prince Regent's brother - she knows little of their more unsavory ways, and resents the efforts of her guardian, elegant Sydney Saint-Denis, to shield her from them. To prove her mettle, heedless of any risk, Carolyn flirts more outrageously than ever, even with a gypsy prince. She certainly doesn't view Sydney as a potential suitor.
