Pride and the Poor Princess
Pride and the Poor Princess is #134 in the Bantam (US) series and was published in February 1981. The Duke of Buckminster is on his yacht sailing to Constantinople with his mistress and some friends. She is determined to shop the bazaars to find jewels and while docked, they meet the mysterious Princess Militsa of Russia and become involved in a daring plot to rescue her and her father from the Bolsheviks!
This is a pretty cover of our couple in the Mediterranean. They look relaxed and happy as they lounge on the deck of the Siren. Our heroine is pretty in a typical 1920's dress while our hero wears yachting wear of a blue blazer and white duck trousers and boat shoes.
