Lovers in Lisbon
Lovers in Lisbon is #57 in the Camfield series and was published in May 1988. Felicita is a poor seamstress when she is noticed by the Duchesse of Monreuil in the lobby of a hotel. The Duchesse plans to use her as a weapon to entice the son of her first lover, the Marquis of Alvaro. This is one of the few books Cartland set in Portugal.
This cover, by an unknown artist, is very pretty. I like that the heroine has dark hair, which is unusual for Barbara Cartland heroines! Our couple stand in a field of flowers and we see a beautiful blue sky as a background. Our couple seem enamored of each other!
