Love at Forty
Love at Forty was published by Pyramid (US) in 1977. It is the story of 40 year old Malcolm Worthington, who is proposed to by Marcia, a woman desperate to return to England. Once they are married, however, she is concerned that their marriage of convenience may be all to her advantage.
Francis Marshall creates a lovely cover with our couple on horseback in a pretty wood. Our hero is pensive and handsome while our heroine is very pretty! It's a typical English picture and another nice work from Marshall.
Nowadays, a book with this title would have the heroine at age 40!
