One Coin in the Fountain

Perfect for fans of the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn.

When Rose’s charming guardian Sir Laurence Melville is ditched by her fiancée, Rose is secretly happy, as she is quite in love with the man herself. When she travels to Rome, nothing and no one can seem to take Rose’s mind off him, not even the gorgeous prince she meets. Then something unexpected happens: she encounters Sir Laurence himself. Too bad he is not alone, for he has the lovely Signora Bardoli as his companion. The memorable love tale from the 20th century is written by Anita Charles, a pseudonym of the beloved romance writer Ida Pollock.

A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.

Anita Charles is a pseudonym of Ida Pollock (1908 – 2013), a highly successful British writer of over 125 romance novels translated into numerous languages and published across the world. Ida Pollock has sold millions of copies over her 90-year career.

Pollock began writing when she was 10 years old. Ida has travelled widely, living in several different countries. She continues to be popular amongst both her devoted fan base and new readers alike. Pollock has been referred to as the 'world's oldest novelist' who was still active at 105 and continued writing until her death.

On the occasion of her 105th birthday, Pollock was appointed honorary vice-president of the Romantic Novelists' Association, having been one of its founding members.

Ida Pollock wrote in a wide variety of pseudonyms: Joan M. Allen, Susan Barrie, Pamela Kent, Averil Ives, Anita Charles, Barbara Rowan, Jane Beaufort, Rose Burghley, Mary Whistler and Marguerite Bell.
