Free as the Wind

Free as the Wind is the fourth book in the UK Master Butcher series in 1989. It was not published in the US. Eustacia is an heiress but wishes to be married for love, so she answers an ad and becomes the companion to a lady whose son is an explorer. She falls in love with him but his father won't give him any money since he won't settle down as his heir should.

I like the austere setting of the room on this cover which allows the objects to be observed. The heroine is happy to be looking at the treasures of the hero's and the sapphire Buddha looks rare and very breakable! The hero is anxious to see her reaction and she looks very happy.  I like her simple hairdo and vivid yellow gown.
