This book is about Alina who is saved by Lord Dorrington, the hero, from an arranged marriage. Arranged marriages were common in this time since women legally had no power. A father could marry a daughter off to whoever he chose. Again, Cartland uses the duel in one of her scenes, which Francis Marshall uniquely illustrates, since we don't see the protagonist! This scene took place in Carlton House, the Prince Regent's home in London. Obviously, this duel has the sanction of royalty, since duelling was illegal and would normally be held outdoors, as noted in a previous post. At times, important men would hold immediate duels, but this was rare and against the normal code of honor. ( )

Book description
England, 1799. Alyna saw no escape. Her mother, a selfish and cruel woman, insisted that she marry the wealthy Prince Ahmadi of Kahriz, a man who made the beautiful Alyna cringe in horror.

She saw only one way out -- a cold leap into the Thames. And she would have done it if one man had not saved her. That man was Lord Dorrington, London's famous dandy, pupil of Beau Brummel, and the most sought after bachelor in England.

But now the danger had just begun for Alyna. Hunted by the Prince and his allies, she was trapped in a desperate web of agonizing fears, murder and intrigue. Could Lord Dorrington save her one more time?
