Alone and Afraid
Alone and Afraid is #21 in the Camfield series and was published in May 1985 for Barbara Cartland. This story is about Kitrina, who is brought to the attention of her distant relative, the Marquis of Elkesley, by a friend in Paris. Kitrina, born in Africa, is being pursued by a desert Sheikh and hopes that her kinsman can take her back to England before the unthinkable happens!
This is a unique cover since I think it's the only time Cartland uses a coffin as an escape route from a dangerous villain! We see our couple on a safe train and an attendant looking on in bewilderment! I like the expression of the heroine as she gazes into the hero's eyes!
