The Explosion of Love
The Explosion of Love is #113 in the Bantam series and was published in December 1979. It is the story of Princess Marie-Celeste, called Zaza, who longs for some freedom and escapes with her music teacher to Paris for a holiday. Unfortunately, her teacher injures his ankle and they are helped from the train by a mysterious man who she falls in love with. There is also danger lurking as revolutionaries plot to over throw the government. Another exciting Cartland novel!
Francis Marshall paints our couple at a dance under the moonlight. She wears a typical dress from the 1890's with a cute small hat while our hero is dressed in a black suit. I like his effort with motion; you can almost see our couple swinging into the turn! It's interesting to see the background people dancing and sitting at tables. Enjoy this Marshall cover!
