The Weapon is Love

The Weapon is Love by Barbara Cartland is #146 in the Pink Collection and was published in November 2016. The vicar's daughter, Lucinda, is asked to come to the home of the Earl of Rockhaven to help him entertain a German baron and his son who are visiting. Lucinda and Ivan, the earl's son, find love as they pit their wits against the Germans in Berlin in the days before WW1.

So here is something different: this cover looks like a mash up with the heroine's face from the UK cover of The Secret Fearhttp://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2010/04/secret-fear.html
The hero comes from the Library of Love book, Tetherstones http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-07-01T19:42:00-04:00&max-results=7

Pink #99 also used the cover from The Secret Fear: http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2013/02/love-conquers-war.html
