The Price is Love
The Price is Love is the second of the Sphere books published in the UK. This book was printed in 1980. It is about Dacia, who travels to Rome with Sir Marcus as his nurse after an accident lands him at her doctor father's house. She's not excited about the prospect since he's a difficult patient, but falls in love with Rome and maybe with Sir Marcus!
Francis Marshall shows our couple getting out of a horse drawn carriage near the Trevi (?) fountain in Rome. Our heroine is a pretty redhead with a beautiful pink gown while our hero is handsome in black formal wear. It's a beautiful cover and I was happy to find a copy since the US editions weren't illustrated by Marshall.
