Light of the Gods
Light of the Gods is #6 in the Camfield series by Jove and was published in December 1982. The BMI edition was published in 1999 in the US.
Sacha Waverley undertakes a daring masquerade at the plea of her cousin Deirdre. She is to stand in as Deirdre to care for her cousin's fiance, who has been blinded in a hunting accident. Sasha is excited to wear elegant gowns and be waited upon, until she falls in love with her patient, to her dismay.
The Camfield version shows our couple sitting on a bed with the hero's eyes bound from his injury. She is dressed in a beautiful white gown and we see the tenderness between them.
The BMI reprint has a similar picture of the hero and heroine. This may be the same cover used for the UK publication. I think this is a prettier and more elegant cover, but I love the UK cover art. BMI reprinted about a dozen of Cartland's books!
