The Island of Love
The Island of Love is #15 in the Camfield series by Jove and was published in November 1984. Lydia's younger sister, Heloise, is beautiful and calculating. She becomes engaged to the catch of the season, the Earl of Royston. He is commanded by the Queen to travel to Hawaii to celebrate King Kalakaua's coronation as her ambassador. Traveling there, he becomes friendly with Lydia and soon begins to realize that he's asked the wrong sister!
This is another in the "almost naked heroine" covers, though it is part of the story when our travelers become shipwrecked! I like the setting of the Hawaiian beach, with the palm trees and native flowers. This is the only book that I know of set partially in Hawaii!
