The beautiful red-headed daughter of a country parson, Lara is petrified by the fact that Jane, her friend, is being constantly pursued by a lecher, Lord Magor in the ancestral home of the Marquis of Keyston where Jane is the giverness. In utter disdain towards the Lord, she takes place of Jane as the governess, to teach him a lesson. Instead she learns about a lesson of love from the Marquis, while being preyed by the lustful Magor.
Barabara Cartland was successful in making this romantic novel a completely dramatic one too, as Magor holds Lara in a locked room and something terrible happens.
