I think this is a unique cover art and it looks like it may be a Francis Marshall cover. If a sharp reader sees it on another Cartland book, let me know. The heroine is pretty in pink and it's a calm scene where our couple are sitting.

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.

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.
The second photo is taken from barbaracartland.com for this title. It looks like an alternate version to the original book: The Bars of Iron!
