"For a long time life handed Sabra Howe nothing but poison ivy. Her father was an unsympathetic miser, the political boss in a society summer resort. He kept Sabra hard at work running a hot dog stand and schemed to marry her into a bank. Sabra was never allowed to have any fun. Even the exclusive hotel beach wanted to shoo her away. The novel tells you how fortune changed for Sabra with the arrival of a prince, incognito -- two princes, in fact, though one is bogus. Her romance proves to be a frisky summer excitement. It is composed with princely fun, hotel intrigue, bathing beauties, masquerades, yachting parties, jealous rivals, a boxing champion and his training camp; not to omit the joys of lovemaking and an almost royal wedding."
