The Duchess Disappeared
The Duchess Disappeared is #107 in the Bantam series and was published in August 1979. Fiona and her young niece are taken to Scotland after she finds out that her niece is the heir to the Duke of Strathrannock. Once there, she finds that there is a mystery about the duke's late wife and against her wishes, finds herself falling in love with the duke!
Francis Marshall illustrates a rescue scene with our hero saving the heroine from a bad fall! They look like they are in a tower or turret and the rotting wood behind her indicates that she has been saved in the nick of time! It's an interesting cover and a great story!
