The Hell-Cat and the King by Barbara Cartland
"When I marry," Zenka cried, "I shall marry for love and no Queen or anybody else will persuade me to do otherwise."
Her defiant vow was as brave as it was useless. Queen Victoria had already decided to marry the fiery-haired Princess to King Miklos of Karanya.
Zenka was faced with two horrifying choices: follow Her Majesty's wishes and marry without love, or spend the rest of her life in a convent.
The Queen might force her to marry Miklos, but she would have her revenge. She would make the King love her, then attack him with every weapon in her power.
"He shall get exactly the kind of wife he deserves . , a hell-cat!"
