Today I did some housecleaning on the blog. I merged 2 separate posts about Sweet Enchantress into one and then added some new (really old) cover photos to the following titles:
The Incredible Honeymoon
The Enchanting Evil
A Virgin in Paris
The Unknown Heart
Love to the Rescue
The Little Adventure
The Unpredictable Bride
Also, a reader sent me a clue that Barbara Cartland's website was listing some old Francis Marshall cover art and I have added photos to these posts:
The Dangerous Dandy
Mine For Ever
Mission to Monte Carlo
Money or Love
No Darkness for Love
No Time for Love
They Ran Away
Who Can Deny Love?
I hope that we continue to find new FM cover art! Please contact me by leaving a comment on the blog if you notice a new picture.
The two pictures on the left look like Christmas cards that Francis Marshall may have sent Barbara Cartland! I'm glad we're seeing more of his art work on her website which is linked below.

This is also the 654th book in this blog collection. I know of 2 titles not yet published in book form: The Secret Princess (published in French but not English) and A Challenge of Hearts (published in audiobook form only). Cartland's Amazon page states she wrote 723 titles with 644 being romances. I have included a few non-romances in this blog because they have a Francis Marshall illustrated cover.
This story is about how the Duke foils a marriage plan from a spoiled beauty and saves her cousin, Devinia, at the same time!
