Pilgrims Castle by Violet Winspear
She seemed to be reliving a story!
Yvains fairy tale namesake had been assisted by a lion in a fight against a dragon.
When Yvain was shipwrecked on the tiny, Spanish Isla del Leon, she was taken to the castle of the Lion himself - autocratic Don Juan de Conques y Aranda, Marques de Leon. the Marques was kind, showering her with attentions Yvain felt properly belonged to the Spanish girl he was expected to marry.
But there was no way the Lion could help in the dragon-size fight Yvain was waging against her growing love for the Marques!
