Alone in Paris
Alone in Paris is #99 in the Bantam series and was published in March 1979. It is the story of Una and how she ends up staying with the Duke of Wolstanton after she arrives in Paris and finds out that her artist father has died. The Duke is a collector of her father's art and assumes that she is not "quite a lady" but realizes very soon that she is everything he's been looking for in a wife!
Francis Marshall paints our couple at the Moulin Rouge where our heroine is pretty and innocent in a white gown while our hero is dashing in evening wear. Note the orchestra in the balcony and the dancers in the background! It's a fascinating cover and typical of Marshall's talent!!
