When April finds herself in a pickle – stranded in Madrid with no money – she gets a more-than-welcome offer. The charming Spanish Don Carlos wants to make April her bride. How could she refuse? He is handsome, wealthy and a true gentleman. Yet Don Carlos’ lovely young ward Constancia is clearly also intent on becoming the missus of the lovely Spaniard. Can he truly choose April, a plain English girl over her, and will she need to fight for her desire to stay with him in romantic Spain? The romantic tale was written in the 20th century under one of Ida Pollock’s pseudonyms, Susan Barrie.
A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.
