The Marquis is Deceived is #128 in the Pink Collection and was published in May 2015. It is one of my favorite Barbara Cartland plots where the bride is switched at the last moment! The Marquis of Craigmere needs to wed immediately to thwart his mistress and asks for the hand of the daughter of a duke. However, she is in love with another and her cousin, Silva, comes to her rescue and marries the Marquis in her stead.

A Train to Love

A Train to Love is #124 in the Pink Collection and was published in January 2015. This is the story of Lola Fenton and how she finds a position and love after the death of her parents in 1880's Britain.

This cover looks new for this title. I like that it shows our hero and heroine on a train and both dressed for dinner.  The heroine's green gown is stunning and it's evident that they are in love! Since most pictures have been reused covers with the Pink Collection books, it's really nice to see new art work. I hope you enjoy this!
