Barbara Cartland

Alone and Afraid

Ever popular with the grasping and greedy beauties of the Social world, the handsome Marquis of Elkesley is becoming disillusioned with their constant requests for expensive gifts and so he travels to Paris to forget them.
There he receives a pleading letter from his close friend, Celeste, one of Paris’s most notorious demi-mondaines. She has taken under her wing a frightened but beautiful young waif called Kitrina and, Celeste’s sinful lifestyle rendering her unsuitable as a Guardian, she asks the Marquis to make her his Ward.
Faced with the fact that Kitrina is the illegitimate child of a distant, dead and disgraced relative of his, he has no choice but reluctantly to agree to Celeste’s request.
To his amazement he is soon captivated by Kitrina’s unsullied innocence and charm, but just as he loses his heart, he also loses the young beauty who has stolen it when she is kidnapped by an evil Arab Sheikh bent on forcing her into marriage and join his harem in North Africa.
She is desperately alone and afraid as she has never been before in her life and she prays fervently that God will send the man she loves to rescue her from a fate worse than death.

    Something I hate that is constantly reflected in these novels: the abuses suffered by animals.

    “Mama and I used to hire horses when we were on our holidays together, but they were not very good ones and usually came from livery stables, where they were worked too hard and not fed properly.”

    ‘Damn Gerald!’ he cursed. ‘Why can I not have fun like other men and be as irresponsible as they are?’

    He knew the answer was that he took his position in life very seriously and part of that involved being Head of the Elke family and being a father figure to Kitrina.
