The Chieftain Without A Heart
The Chieftain without a Heart is #95 in the Bantam series and was published in December 1978. It is the story of Clola, who is told to marry the new Duke of Strathnarn in order to provide a end to their clan's fighting. How they fall in love with members of the different clans disagreeing, is the plot of this romantic story!
I love this cover by Francis Marshall! Our hero is rugged and handsome in his tartan plaid while our heroine is dainty in her blue gown with tartan bows. She is beautiful and the hero definitely admires her as she plays the harp! Cartland's husband was Scottish and she loved Scotland!
This story is set in 1822, but the Scottish clans did feud amongst one another. George IV was the first English king since Charles, to visit Scotland and he did so in full Highland regalia!
