A Fugitive from Love
A Fugitive from Love is #79 in the Bantam series and was published in January 1978. It is the story of Salena Cardenham, who is visiting Monte Carlo with her gambler father. She escapes a Russian Prince after she realizes he is a married man and is rescued at sea by the Duke of Templecombe. Many more adventures occur before they realize their love for each other!
Francis Marshall illustrates a scene including our couple with the angry Russian Prince. Our heroine wears Arabian garb while our hero is dressed in military gear. Note the beauty and opulence of the interior tent? Again, here is proof that Marshall was great at drawing the body because all three people stand in a different position. Enjoy this bright cover!
