She was ready to walk out on him, but then she discovered that his tenants had been ill-treated during his long absences in Paris.She set out to improve their lives, and became so determined to achieve this end that she almost forgot her husband.Robin was not used to women who stood up to him or ignored him. But his wife did both and he found himself intrigued.But neither of them had reckoned with a man who sought revenge on Robin for putting him in prison, and who had finally tracked him down.What happened when he broke into their home and tried to kill Celina, is all told in this exciting, romantic novel by BARBARA CARTLAND.
