Eugenia Dovedale’s father had been High Steward to the Marquis of Buckbury, and after his unexpected death, Eugenia was forced to leave Paragon, the family’s beautiful and much-loved cottage on the estate. She and her mother now live uncomfortably with her great-aunt Cloris in London, as they cannot afford to live anywhere else.

Mrs. Dovedale maintains strong hopes of her daughter finding a good husband and improving their position, so she’s thrilled when the Marquis returns from France and begins to show considerable interest in Eugenia. However, Eugenia is determined to only marry for love and passion, and she dreams of being swept off her feet.

When Mrs. Dovedale is injured in a coach accident, the Marquis invites her and Eugenia to stay at Buckbury Abbey to recover. The Marquis’ admiration for Eugenia intensifies, and her mother continues to push her towards him, but Eugenia’s heart longs for Gregor Brodosky, a Russian painter. Eugenia’s life becomes more and more distraught and confusing when Gregor arrives at Buckbury to paint her a portrait.

How Eugenia finds happiness at Paragon and realizes her dreams—after many twists and turns—is revealed in this intriguing and spellbinding story.

About the Author

Barbara Cartland (1901–2000) was one of the world’s most prolific novelists, writing an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no fewer than 644 were romantic novels. Worldwide sales of her books have approached or exceeded one billion copies. Her first book—an immediate bestseller—was written at the age of twenty-one. The demand for her books was so strong that over her last two decades Cartland increased her output and wrote an incredible 400 romances, penning her final one at the age of ninety-seven. Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States, where in 1976 a pair of them occupied the top two spots in the B. Dalton bestsellers list—a feat never achieved before or since by any author. Cartland became a legend in her own time, and her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissfully happy endings, and above all for her unwavering belief in the positive power of love.
