The Duke Comes Home
The Duke Comes Home is #168 in the Bantam series and was published in January 1983. Ilina's father has died and the estate has been inherited by her cousin Sheridan. Unfortunately, there is no money and she is left the "Nizam's jewels," which are hidden somewhere in the house! Once the new duke arrives, she has to convince him to stay and take his place instead of returning to India and his life there.
This cover scene is after the heroine and hero are attacked by foreigners trying to find the Nizam's jewels. Our heroine wears a pretty green gown and the strong hero carries her to safety. We see a large portrait which is a clue to the mystery!!
