Light of the Moon is #103 in the Bantam series and was published in May 1979. It is the story of Neoma and her brother and how they visit the Marquis of Rosyth in order to steal an IOU that the Marquis mistakenly acquired. Unfortunately, some mistaken identity and rotten characters get in the way of the Marquis falling in love with her until all gets cleared up in this romance by Barbara Cartland!
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple on a terrace in the moonlight! They are kissing and it's a very romantic picture! Our heroine is pretty in white and the dark gray of the sky and background emphasize them.
Young men quite often got into trouble with gambling during regency times. IOU's were an honorable way to state that you would repay the debt and usually had to be paid within the month.
