To visit Rome was a wish that lovely Alina Langley had never dreamed would come true. Yet here she was, a sheltered young country miss, impersonating an aristocratic, widowed beauty in a dangerous, perhaps even wicked, gamble to reconcile a childhood friend with an adored beau. In Rome, the girls' host was the handsome and scathing Marquis of Teverton, the Casanova of London. And he kissed her. Alina was seared by the fire of his lips, stunned by his arrogant confidence, but most of all shocked . . . to find that she loved the forbidding Marquis of Teverton!

Her first novel, Jig-Saw, was published in 1923. Barbara Cartland married Alexander McCorquodale in 1927.
