The Peril and the Prince
The Peril and the Prince is #20 in the Camfield series by Jove. This book was published in April 1985. Vida Anstruther's father, a diplomat, has disappeared in Hungary and she decides to go find out what has happened after official channels prove unsuccessful. Her disguise as a young widow works well on Prince Ivan, who she wonders is a friend or foe!!
This is an interesting cover of our couple. Our heroine leans against the hero as they travel on a train and her peasant costume is a disguise as to her real identity. Our princely hero is handsome and gentle. If you like Barbara Cartland's stories set in Russia and filled with secret police and spies, you will like this one!
