The Marquis of Darincourt has decided to marry and proposes to Lady Charlotte Warde, only to be rejected because he's not a duke! Frustrated, he leaves only to encounter Lady Charlotte's cousin, Serla, who is an unwanted poor relation. To save face, he and Serla decide to become engaged, so that no one can think Lady Charlotte turned him down, but she has revenge in store in this great regency novel!
This cover art looks unique with a servant helping lift Serla onto the Marquis's horse.
I am excited to see and read the last dozen novels in this posthumous collection.

This cover is identical to The Bars of Iron by Ethel M. Dell, one of Cartland's Library of Love series. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2010/05/lol-bars-of-iron.htmll
An interesting observation is that this heroine looks a lot like Princess Diana, even though the original book was published way before her engagement and wedding to Prince Charles.
This cover is identical to the UK Arrow book Lessons in Love. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2009/05/lessons-in-love.html
