Flowers for the God of Love
Flowers for the God of Love is #105 in the Bantam series and was published in July 1979. Cartland writes a story about a girl named Quenella, who is being pursued by a married man and Rex, who has become the new lieutenant governor in India. Both have problems, since Rex can't afford his new position unless he marries and Quenella needs a refuge from the suitor. They decide to marry and learn to love each other as they travel to India!
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple while in India and it's a pretty cover with them outside admiring the native flowers. She is pretty in white muslin and carrying a pink parasol while our hero is handsome and cool in a beige linen jacket. I like the hint of wildness in the garden where they stand. It's another great cover by Marshall.
