From the back cover:

"I have searched the whole world for you."

After pulling the gown from the shoulders of Jarita, his half-drowned and unconscious bride, Alvaric recoiled in horror. Why had her father beaten her so brutally...?

Returning from Africa to Regency England, the new Lord Vernham discovers the family heirlooms gambled away and the estate in debt to a wealthy neighbour - who offers full restitution if Alvaric will immediately marry his daughter.

He reluctantly agrees, only to find a wife as wild as the animals he has brought home for his menagerie.

Drama follows drama and only after Jarita saves Alvaric from a cruel death can they surrender to the divine rapture that makes them no longer two people but one in heart, body and soul.

This was my first read by Barbara Cartland, and it was an experience. I don't think she'll become a favourite author or anything like that, but I'll definitely pick up another if I feel like a laugh and a lot of flowery language! The description pretty much says it all so I won't add anything further to that.

If there's any Cartland fans out there I'm happy to post this anywhere as it's only small. Not in real great condition, though - it's very old and has very yellow pages, some tears and staining, old book smell, etc.

Just checking in to let you know I am safe and sound. I am having a nice visit with fairy-whispers before continuing on my travels. I hope you’re having as much fun as I am!

With Great Affection,

Your Book :-)

This is a short, light read and is good for when you don't really want to think too much. It is not explicit, so if you read romances for titillation you will be disappointed. This is an old-fashioned romance that leaves the sexual stuff to the imagination. This was an easy and enjoyable read.
