Nevertheless, Ian is determined to win her. He has a bold plan in mind, but when he and Sophia encounter one another at the legendary Fairy Steps, a most inconvenient wish is accidently made—and neither could possibly guess the happy outcome…

Valona is excited when she is asked by her wealthy relation the Duke of Inchcombe to become Lady-in-Waiting to his sister Lady Rose. Together they will travel to the Balkans, where Lady Rose is to make a politically astute marriage at the request of Queen Victoria. Having lived in impoverished seclusion all her life Valona believes that her dreams of travel are finally coming true. However, after helping star crossed lovers Lady Rose and the Marquis of Dorsham find true happiness it seems that it is Valona's dreams of romance that will be shattered. With no royal bride to offer the elderly King, it seems the only way to save Larissa from the threat of the encroaching Russian army is for Valona to take her place. Bravely putting aside her own feelings, and deciding that she must forget about true love, Valona selflessly agrees to marry the King of Larissa Terrified at the idea of her impending nuptials and an arranged marriage with a much older man, Valona begs to visit the Greek island of Delos before she meets her husband to be. Here she offers a heartfelt prayer to the God Apollo to bring her a man she can love forever, and dreams of the man whose face haunts her. Will her prayers be answered? Only the gods know as Valona moves towards her destiny. If you like Downton Abbey you will love Barbara Cartland
