Barbara Cartland is one of my favourite romance novelists. Although her books are short compared to modern romance writers, they are just as effective.
Tears of love is one of my favourites. The book is around 200 pages (in tiny print). It tells the story of a secretary who works for a man who she thinks betrayed her father. An unlikely romance develops between them.
Barbara Cartland captures the politics, society and scenery of Argentina beautifully in this well written book.
A must read.
If you're new to her books, you can start with this one. She has written more than 700 books during her long career.
