Sweet Punishment by Barbara Cartland was published in 1979 (US) and 1971 (UK) in paperback.
It's a case of hate at first sight when Lady Diana Stanlier meets Ian Carstairs. He returns from Africa with a message from a dying man who loved Diana. So she decides to teach him a lesson in love!
The Pyramid (US) cover shows our hero in Scottish kilt and our heroine struggling with him. She is very pretty, but obviously angry. I like this cover better than the other.
The Arrow (UK) cover shows our couple in the midst of an argument with the heroine about to hit the hero with a riding crop! I think her riding outfit is very odd and looks unattractive, which is unusual for a cover by Francis Marshall! The hero is dashing in his suit, though! Which cover is your favorite?
