Lucifer and the Angel
Lucifer and the Angel is #126 in the Bantam series and was published in September 1980. It is another of the "pink" covers that Bantam briefly experimented with at this time.
This story is about Anita and her sisters, who decide to visit richer relatives while their mother is in Switzerland for her health. Anita goes to Harrogate and meets the Duke of Ollerton. She is able to visit with the Dowager Duchess after her aunt tries to marry her off to an old man and begins to fall in love with the duke. It's a great love story by Cartland set during Victorian times.
Francis Marshall paints our couple in a stable with a beautiful black horse. Our heroine stands out in a pink gown. Note her Victorian hairdo! Our hero is handsome in riding dress! It's another great cover by Marshall!
