So here is something different: this cover looks like a mash up with the heroine's face from the UK cover of The Secret Fearhttp://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2010/04/secret-fear.html
The hero comes from the Library of Love book, Tetherstones http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-07-01T19:42:00-04:00&max-results=7
Pink #99 also used the cover from The Secret Fear: http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2013/02/love-conquers-war.html

This is a new cover for this novel. The heroine seems to be helping the hero, who has hidden in a well for some reason! It was one of the first titles listed (but not published) after Cartland quit publishing in the mid-1990's, so may have been done by the artist during that time.
