A tale of love and intrigue for the romantic at heart

Justina Mansell, the youngest daughter of Lord and Lady Mansell, is told that her sister has been invited to visit India, but cannot accept. So Justina jumps at the chance to go in her place. Her aunt arranges for her to be chaperoned aboard ship by the stately Mrs. Arbuthnot, who is traveling with her two daughters and her little terrier, Muffin.

Justina is quickly attracted to the good-looking Sir Thomas Watson, who is most attentive and much admires her beauty when he joins the Arbuthnot table for dinner. When the Arbuthnot ladies succumb to seasickness, Justina takes Muffin for walks along the deck. There she meets the solitary figure of Lord Castleton with his own dog. He knows her father, and they strike up a friendship. But Justina finds herself compromised in her cabin by Sir Thomas, even though she has given him no encouragement, and is forced to agree to become engaged to him to prevent a scandal. Lord Castleton is not at all pleased by this turn of events, especially as Justina seemed far from happy with her engagement.

How Justina is swept from despair to happiness and love after a number of surprises and unexpected twists is told in this unusual and intriguing romance by Barbara Cartland.

About the Author
Author Barbara Cartland

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.
