The Magic of Paris

The Magic of Paris is a UK Mandarin paperback published in 1991. This book was also published in hardback and I believe with another title. It was not published in the US.

Eva's father has died while they were in Paris and in the house of a notorious courtesan! When she visits to retrieve a shirt stud, she encounters Lord Charles Craig, who has visited Leonide with a problem of his own and she decides to ask Eva if she will help Charles thwart a marriage proposal!

On this cover, we see an angry man who seems to be upsetting our heroine, since the hero comforts her. Her dress really is the star of this cover, with its bustle and blue ribbon trimming. It looks very elegant and I think all of us girls wish we could wear something like it, at least once!
