A Rebel Princess

When her father, the Grand Duke, tells the lovely young Princess Tora of Radoslav that she is to marry the aged King of Salona, she is appalled and horrified.
But no amount of pleading by her will change her father's mind.
So Tora decides that she must find a way to see her prospective husband without his being aware of her presence and then try to find a way to escape her awful Fate.
Since she is a talented musician, she has little difficulty in persuading her dear friend, Professor Lazar Srejovic, the nation's greatest musician, to allow her to join his famous quartet for a concert at the King of Salona's Palace.
She devises a cunning plan to escape from the Palace of Radoslav, so that her father cannot stop her and joins up secretly with the Professor's quartet to travel by carriage to Maglic, the Capital of Salona.
But on arriving at an inn on the way disguised in peasant dress, she is terrified to unexpectantly overhear a sinister plot to murder and violently overthrow the King of Salona and seize his country by force.
Her life is now in danger, but, when a dashing and handsome stranger comes to her rescue when she is hiding in a wood near the inn, she loses her heart to him utterly in a moment and just as quickly loses all hope that they can ever be together.
And her future is sealed for ever with no hope of love and happiness.

    There had been one mésalliance in the family some years ago when one of their cousins, when she was nearly middle-aged and despairing of ever finding a husband, had married a Danish Diplomat. The scandal had reverberated throughout the family.
    She had been criticised, abused and even ostracised for such behaviour in such an exaggerated manner that Tora felt they could hardly have said more if she had run away with a criminal.

    The man she loved would be alive and how could she live in a Convent or anywhere else thinking of him having a wife and children while she denied herself everything but the memory of a few kisses

    Unusual for a Cartland character to have a spine…

    However she thought it beneath her dignity to ask too many questions
