Perfect for fans of the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn.
Jacqueline Vaizey receives an invitation to the island of Sansegovia, where her recently passed father worked as a doctor. Her hostess Senora Cortina happens to have a charming, imposing grandson Dominic Errol, who clearly takes a liking to Jacqueline. If only he was not betrothed to the Spanish Carlotta Consuella — surely it’s best for Jacqueline to simply forget about him? The gripping love story from the 20th century was written by Barbara Rowan, a pseudonym of the prolific romance writer Ida Pollock.
A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.
