The Problems of Love
The Problems of Love is #81 in the Bantam series and was published in March 1978. It is the story of Alexia, who brings her beautiful sister to London to have a season and implores her kinsman, the Marquis of Osminton, to help her find a house. Once he sees how beautiful her sister is, he is determined to help them just to watch the fireworks once the other beauties see this new one and because he is interested in the older sister!
Francis Marshall illustrates a scene where our heroine is intreating the hero to help them. She is pretty in a light blue regency gown that compliments his dark blue coat and seems to be in motion! The younger sister sits in the background and the color of her dress and hair seem to blend into the walls and furniture. It's a fascinating cover illustration with much to view!
I'm amazed at how many books Cartland set in the regency times! No wonder that I love those stories!!
