Wenda has struggled alone to keep the family’s crumbling ancestral home, Creswell Court, going. Her brother, Robbie, now Lord Creswell, is spending his time in London where he is a great success in Society and with the Prince of Wales and thebeautiful ladies who surround him. The Prince has suffered from not being allowed by Queen Victoria to take any part in ruling the country and in compensation he goes from one attractive woman to another. He especially enjoys secret weekend house parties at his friends’ country houses – usually a party of ten and each gentleman brings with him a lady of his choice.To Robbie’s consternation the Prince of Wales suggests he should visit Creswell Court where he had heard the pictures are outstanding. Robbie is horrified, but he cannot refuse and so he rushes home to tell Wenda that the Prince is to be theirguest for a Royal house party. Wenda asks the obvious question as to how they can afford it and to her alarm Robbie takes down two valuable pictures, which are entailed, telling her he has found an artist to copy them so cleverly that the Trustees will not realise the originals are missing.Wenda manages to clean up the house while Robbie unexpectedly meets a beautiful young woman who says she is married. Robbie offers to help her and is instantly attracted to her. How Wenda is rewarded for making the house habitable and comfortable for the Prince of Wales and how he finds the house party is even more amusing than he anticipated. And how the secret weekend provides love in a very special and delightful way for both Robbie and Wenda, is all told in this romantic tale by BARBARA CARTLAND.

Through the open door Robbie could see the lamp whi ch stood by his bed, and it must have been lit before Josofine went out and although it was turned low the room seemed warm and golden. Josofine moved to the window to look down at the mo onlit street below. “It has been a lovely evening,” she sighed. “I do not think I have ever been so happy.” “Nor have I,” Robbie replied. “Is that true?” she quizzed. “Of course it is true. Surely you understand that when I am with you I am happier than I have ever been.” Josephine looked at him and he realised that her bl ue eyes were searching his face – she wanted to be quite sure he was telling her the truth. Very slowly, as if he was afraid to do so, he put h is arms round her. “I love you, Josofine,” he whispered. “I love you, my darling, with all my heart and soul. There is no one else in the whole world for me except you.” He felt the little quiver that went through her and then he drew her closer to him and his lips were on hers. It was a very gentle kiss. A kiss almost of reverence.

She was frequently in the Guinness Book of R ecords for writing more books in a year than any other living author.

Her publishers finally could not keep up with this phenomenal output, so at her death she left 160 unpublished manuscripts, som ething again that no other author has ever achieved.
