When she reaches Velidos, the King, who is the half-brother of Prince Frederick, finds her in tears and does his best to comfort her. Secretly Titania rides with the King early in the morning before her cousin is awake and discovers that he prides himself on having no heart.
How she gains the King's confidence, how she manages to save the King from being murdered and how she eventually finds her own happiness, is all told in this unusual and exciting story by BARBARA CARTLAND.
Barbara Cartland was the world's most prolific novelist who wrote an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no less than 644 were romantic novels with worldwide sales of over 1 billion copies and her books were translated into 36 different languages. As well as romantic novels, she wrote historical biographies, 6 autobiographies, theatrical plays and books of advice on life, love, vitamins and cookery. She wrote her first book at the age of 21 and it was called "Jigsaw". It became an immediate bestseller and sold 100,000 copies in hardback in England and all over Europe in translation.
Between the ages of 77 and 97 she increased her output and wrote an incredible 400 romances as the demand for her romances was so strong all over the world. She wrote her last book at the age of 97 and it was entitled, perhaps prophetically, "The Way to Heaven". Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States where in 1976 her current books were at numbers 1 & 2 in the B. Dalton bestsellers list, a feat never achieved before or since by any author.
Barbara Cartland became a legend in her own lifetime and will be best remembered for her wonderful romantic novels so loved by her millions of readers throughout the world, who have always collected her books to read again and again, especially when they feel miserable or depressed. Her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissful happy endings and above all for her belief that the power of love is more important than anything else in everyone's life.

Short and very sweet
I really enjoyed the narrator for this book because he had a very handsome voice and it was updated and doesn’t sound old. The story was very good and a nice clean short romance. I bought this using cash and didn’t use a credit because it is a short story. I do plan to read more by her.
