Too long. The heroine was one of my least favorite Barbara Cartland heroines. I know most of her romances are formulatic. This one was first published in 1938 and it shows. She tried to make it have a more complicated plot. Obviously in the following years, she does fine tune her formula so she doesn't have so many supporting characters love stories within main the plot. Otherwise, typical Barbara Cartland fare. Just read it for nostalgia (used to read as a teen). ( )

Book description
Sir Norman Melton had not always been a wealthy man. Determination and a driving ambition took him from a lowly position on the factory floor to ownership of the Melton Motor Company. Fiercely independent, he also harbored a strong mistrust of women; but despite this, his involvement with Carlotta Lenshovski, a descendant of the Romanoffs, soon deepens into love. Rejected by the man she really cares for, Carlotta agrees to marry Sir Norman -- although it seems that marriage founded on a financial agreement must be doomed to failure.
