“I cannot let you die for my sake.” The beautiful Zena prayed fervently that the Comte de Graumont would survive the duel with the Marquis de Sade early in the morning in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. Would he ever forgive her for embroiling him in such a dreadful situation. It would break her heart in two, but after this wonderful week in Paris they would never meet again. Zena is really Princess Marie-Therese of Wiedenstein, a small independent Principality between France and Germany. Her brother, Kendric, is the heir to the Throne. Together they had eluded their escorts to escape Court rigour and to spend seven carefree days in Paris under assumed names before Zena becomes engaged to an English Duke. In the glittering whirl of gaiety that marked the Second Empire, Zena pretends to be her brother’s mistress, only to find, because of her beauty, that this brings many unexpected problems, not least when she falls madly in love with a debonair French Comte. Zena would count the world well lost for the Comte’s impassioned kisses, but could true love triumph over a Royal decree and her father’s anger?

informationDame Barbara Cartland (9th July 1901 - 21st May 2000)
was the world's most prolific author and is still constantly mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records. She wrote no less than 723 books in her lifetime of which 644 were her wonderful romantic novels and the remaining 79 were historical biographies, cookery and lifestyle books.
What is truly extraordinary is that when her publishers in 1977 demanded more and more Barbara Cartlands for her adoring public, she doubled her output at the age of 77 from ten books a year to over twenty. She averaged twenty books a year for twenty years and actually wrote her last book when she was 97.
So she wrote 400 books between the ages of 77 and 97, a feat no one has ever achieved in the past and is most unlikely to do in the future. To date five of her romances have been made into feature films.
Her publishers published 240 of the 400 romances, but even they could not keep up with Barbara, so when she died in 2000 she left 160 unpublished books, which are now all being published as the 'Barbara Cartland Pink Collection' at the rate of one a month by her son Ian as a tribute to his amazing mother.
In 1991 Barbara was invested with a Dame of the British Empire by Her Majesty the Queen for her services to literature.
This year is the tenth anniversary of Barbara's death and to mark the date Ian is re-publishing in October Barbara Cartland's first book "Jig-saw" as an exact replica of the original 1925 edition, which was an international bestseller at the time.
"My mother achieved so much in her long and active life," says Ian, "but her greatest legacy of all was the happiness and joy she brought to so many millions of people throughout the world with her wonderful romantic stories of true love and happy endings."
