The Lioness and the Lily
The Lioness and the Lily is #135 in the Bantam series and was published in March 1981. The new Lord Rockbrook is injured after setting his horse into a rabbit hole. He was disturbed because he's being forced into an unwanted marriage! He is taken to Purilla's home where he begins to heal and comes up with a great plan to thwart his marriage!
This is a pretty cover with our couple embracing outside in the woods. Our heroine wears a Victorian gown of light blue which echoes the background of the book. Our hero tenderly holds her as if to save her from danger or realizing how much she means to him.
