Sapphires in Siam
Sapphires in Siam is #53 in the Camfield series by Barbara Cartland and was published in January 1988. The Marquis of Vale is visited by the Siamese ambassador with the news that his friend, Calvin Brook, is dead. He meets Calvin's daughter to break the news to her and she decides to travel with him to Siam, since Ankana doesn't believe the report about her father's death.
This cover is interesting to me because the heroine is a brunette, which has been rare in Cartland's latest romances. One gets tired of blondes after a while! Our couple are in an Oriental setting which is dangerous and mysterious. We don't know if the Buddhist monk in the background is friendly or not.
