Moments of Love
Moments of Love is #156 in the Bantam series and was published in May 1982. Simonetta travels to France with her ducal father, who is also a painter. She meets a fellow painter named Pierre Valery, who is kind and protects her from a lecherous Comte! However, can the daughter of a Duke marry a poor French painter?
I like this cover that it shows our couple in a relaxed pose where it's evident that they are in love. We see an easel in the background and the stark rocky cliffs of the countryside. There is an illustrators signature in the lower left corner that I can't read: Swimburne, maybe.
