In the Arms of Love
Aspasia's uncle is the rector of the parish, but the Duchess of Grimstone holds the power to force his retirement. When she exercises this, Aspasia decides to plead for his renewal. The Duchess wishes to use her in an evil plot to keep the rightful heir from the succession, but the Marquis of Thane, who Aspasia meets at the Duchess's party, is willing to help her!
This cover is another which could have been done by Francis Marshall. There is no initials, but the style is familiar. Our couple ride a horse and we get the feeling that the hero is protecting the heroine in some way.
