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.html
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!
This cover is identical to the UK Arrow book Lessons in Love. http://barbaracartlandbooksandcoverart.blogspot.com/2009/05/lessons-in-love.html
