Description

The beautiful Iona Langdale is walking in her favourite wood the day before her wedding, which is planned to be a huge Society event with marquees and fireworks and attended by her large family and all her smart friends from London. She is musing dreamily about how happy she will be once she is married to her next door neighbour, John Moreton, whom she has known since childhood. Beside a hut by a pool in the wood, she sees her fiancé’s horse tied up to a post and can hear voices coming from inside. She listens without really meaning to and it is John who is speaking to the Vicar’s daughter, Mary. He is telling her how much he loves her, but he has to go through with marrying Iona because he needs her money to repair his house and pay off his father’s debts and Iona is a millionairess. Iona is deeply shocked and disillusioned and, despite her wedding happening tomorrow, she decides to run away as she cannot marry John after hearing that he is so desperately in love with Mary. She sets off not knowing where she should go and after a number of adventures she unexpectedly becomes the cook at the magnificent house of the Earl of Woodbridge. The few servants in his house are frightened of him because of his bad temper which is caused by the fact that he has spent several years looking for his family’s treasure hidden by his miserly uncle before he died, but to no avail. The Earl has spent all his money in searching for the elusive treasure and now he cannot even afford to pay his servants. How Iona cooks superb dishes for the Earl, how she saves his life and how she finds the real love she is seeking is all told in this fascinating story by BARBARA CARTLAND. "Barbara Cartland was the world’s most prolific novelist who wrote an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no less than 644 were romantic novels with worldwide sales of over 1 billion copies and her books were translated into 36 different languages.As well as romantic novels, she wrote historical biographies, 6 autobiographies, theatrical plays and books of advice on life, love, vitamins and cookery.She wrote her first book at the age of 21 and it was called Jigsaw. It became an immediate bestseller and sold 100,000 copies in hardback in England and all over Europe in translation.Between the ages of 77 and 97 she increased her output and wrote an incredible 400 romances as the demand for her romances was so strong all over the world.She wrote her last book at the age of 97 and it was entitled perhaps prophetically The Way to Heaven. Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States where in 1976 her current books were at numbers 1 & 2 in the B. Dalton bestsellers list, a feat never achieved before or since by any author.Barbara Cartland became a legend in her own lifetime and will be best remembered for her wonderful romantic novels so loved by her millions of readers throughout the world, who have always collected her books to read again and again, especially when they feel miserable or depressed.Her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissful happy endings and above all for her belief that the power of love is more important than anything else in everyone’s life."

THE BRIDE RUNS AWAY
“It was the most fortunate thing I have ever done! Here you are and I have just enjoyed a meal more than I have ever enjoyed one be fore and I recognised the Parisian touch at every scintillating mouthful.” Then the Earl said in a very different tone, “I only hope you are staying. But I will be honest and tell you, as I am sure you have been told already, that I cannot pay you for w orking for me.” “That I understand, my Lord. I would be glad to sta y for reasons I don’t wish to discuss at present, while I make up my mind where I will go next.” The Earl stared at her and then he said, “I have the strangest feeling, although I may well be wrong, that you are running away. Can that be true?” “As it happens, it is,” Iona replied. “But I have n o wish to talk about it, my Lord.” She smiled at him. “I will be very happy, if it suits you for me to st ay or rather hide for a while in your house. I will be delighted to pay for the accommoda tion by cooking for you, as you may say, with a professional touch.” “That is the best contract I have ever been offered ,” the Earl answered jovially. He held out his hand and Iona put her hand in his. As his fingers closed over hers, she had the strang e feeling that she was taking a step into the unknown without having the slightest idea of where it might lead her.
