The Thief of Love was published by Sphere (UK) in 1980 and is one of five covers Sphere did for Cartland that were illustrated by Francis Marshall! They are all pretty and I hope you enjoy them very much!
This story is about Alloa, who has an opportunity to travel through France with wealthy relatives. She meets a man who is stealing an heirloom and also steals a kiss from her! She is torn between duty and a handsome, reckless stranger!
Francis Marshall shows our couple in a bar or restaurant. Our heroine is pretty in blue and our hero is handsome in a black formal suit. I like the big bulbous light fixtures above the tables! These were hard to find and exciting to see new covers by Marshall! Click to enlarge!
