The Besieged Baroness
Miss Charlotte Weston was the lovelv, sheltered seventeen-year-old daughter of an English lord when the sudden death of her father and her swift marriage to an aging German nobleman made her the Baroness Lottie Raimund. But now her husband, too, was dead — and the still youthful Lottie found herself in Vienna as that glittering city played host to the premier aristocrats of England and Europe.
The elegant, arrogant Englishman, Max Annesley, offered her the fortune and title to which he was heir. The devilishly handsome, shockingly cynical Prince Paul von Bayersdorf offered her the intoxication that his sophisticated wooing aroused. And the whirlpool of intrigue that was Vienna offered her too much excitement to resist, too much danger to avoid . . . and a choice in love that Lottie had to make wisely or pay a foolish heart's dreadful price!
