LOL: The Knave of Diamonds
The Knave of Diamonds was published in April 1977 as #3 in the Library of Love condensed book collection from Barbara Cartland. Ethel M. Dell wrote the book in 1912 about Lady Carfax and the mysterious Napoleon Errol, who falls in love with her.
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple at a masquerade ball where the hero is dressed as the character in the title while our heroine is pretty in a blue gown. It's a typically classic FM cover and very romantic.
Ethel M. Dell was obviously a favorite author of Barbara Cartland's since she condensed a few of her books in this series. Look out for others coming soon!
