The Marquis of Darincourt has decided to marry and proposes to Lady Charlotte Warde, only to be rejected because he's not a duke! Frustrated, he leaves only to encounter Lady Charlotte's cousin, Serla, who is an unwanted poor relation. To save face, he and Serla decide to become engaged, so that no one can think Lady Charlotte turned him down, but she has revenge in store in this great regency novel!
This cover art looks unique with a servant helping lift Serla onto the Marquis's horse.
I am excited to see and read the last dozen novels in this posthumous collection.

This cover is identical to The Bars of Iron by Ethel M. Dell, one of Cartland's Library of Love series. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2010/05/lol-bars-of-iron.htmll
An interesting observation is that this heroine looks a lot like Princess Diana, even though the original book was published way before her engagement and wedding to Prince Charles.
This cover is identical to the UK Arrow book Lessons in Love. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2009/05/lessons-in-love.html

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

Martina Bradshaw's parents have recently died and her father left written music that suddenly holds an interest for a neighbor. She gets a job teaching a little girl who lives nearby and falls in love with the girl's brother while the neighbor plots to gain control of her father's music!
This cover is one that I can't find has been used before. If a sharp eyed reader sees its match, let me know!!
