Escape From Passion

I have an August 1977 Pyramid edition of Escape from Passion! Fleur is a victim of WW2 and its horrors. She joins the household of Sir Norman Mitcham for a job and finds herself falling in love with him, but can he love her in return?

Francis Marshall creates a pretty cover for this book, which is set during WW2. Our heroine is blonde and pretty in a pink blouse while our hero is dashing in a black suit. The room they stand in is almost indistinct. Very hazy looking.

This is one of Cartland's more serious romances. Cartland herself lived through WW2 and lost both of her brothers in the conflict. It isn't as light and fluffy as others.
