The Runaway Heart
The Runaway Heart was published by Sphere in 1980 for Barbara Cartland and is the last book I have by them illustrated by Francis Marshall.
This book is about Karina, who escapes a proposal to her dull cousin by staying at a house party hosted by the rich and famous Garland Holt. She falls under suspicion for theft after his jade collection is stolen and has to prove her innocence and love!
Francis Marshall creates a great cover with our couple in the back of a car. Our heroine is lovely in a blue dress and our hero is dashing in black! Notice the rug to cover their legs!! Again, this cover was only published in the UK, so very hard to find a copy in the US. Enjoy!!
