The Mysterious Maid-Servant

The Mysterious Maid-Servant is #58 in the Bantam series and was published in March 1977. It is the story of Giselda who is discovered by the Earl of Lyndhurst as a servant in his house. He is in desperate need of a nurse and he hires her as she has nursing skills. He realizes that there is some mystery about this servant girl who is obviously well born. How they are able to save each other and fall in love is the plot of this exciting story set during the regency.

Francis Marshall paints a delightful illustration for this book. It shows our hero and heroine in a box at the theater. She wears a beautiful blue evening gown with shawl and pocketbook. She is moving to save our hero from disaster because the actor's pistol is real, unknown to him!
