The Scent of Roses

The Scent of Roses is a Mandarin UK paperback published in 1991. This book was not published in the US and was extremely hard to find!

Nikola's brother has become a thief! She is mortified by his passion for art and the Marquis of Ridgmont has found out and decides to help him by sending him to Peru to check out some old paintings there. He decides to take Nikola to Turkey as he is being sent on a secret diplomatic mission.

We see our couple sitting and looking at three paintings. The hero is relaxed but the heroine seems to be studying intently the pictures. I like her dark green riding dress which is set off by the rich red leather furniture and curtains in the room.
