An Innocent in Russia
An Innocent in Russia is #148 in the Bantam series and was published in November 1981. Zelina Tiverton lives with her aunt and uncle, but her aunt wishes her out of the way, so she sends her to Russia to stay with an important family. On the way she meets the elusive Lord Charnock, who saves her from a Russian Prince's unwanted advances!
I think this is such a sweet cover! Our hero greets the pretty heroine, who is wearing a pink gown typical of the 1830's. You can tell that they like each other and maybe it's deeper than that!
I always liked Cartland's books set in Russia because it was a exotic place of mystery and fear growing up in the 1970's when Russia was the enemy of the USA.
