Diona and a Dalmation
Diona and a Dalmation is #180 in the Bantam series and was published in December 1983. Diona and her dog run away from her mean uncle and lecherous cousin to the Marquis of Irchester's house where she hopes to get employment as a kennel-maid! Once she receives an inheritance, her uncle goes looking for her! Can the Marquis save her?
This is a pretty cover of our hero carrying the heroine down the steps of a house. We see her dalmation standing nearby and a butler in the doorway. Twilight shades the front of the house a blue color and illuminates the heroine.
I haven't realized until writing this blog how many books Barbara Cartland set in the Regency time (1811-1820). No wonder it's my favorite romance setting!
