A Sacrifice for Love

A Sacrifice for Love is #105 in the Pink Collection and was published in June 2013. Princess Caterina of Thiess visits her friend Princess Harriet of Istria and finds out that an arranged marriage has been proposed for Harriet by Queen Victoria. However, Harriet loves another and convinces Caterina to take her place as the bride in this web of deception.

This cover is identical to Bantam #87: Love, Lords, and Ladybirds. I really love the Francis Marshall covers. He was an early illustrator of Barbara Cartland's books and I'm convinced that his beautiful covers along with her romantic stories are the reason her books were best sellers in the 1970's.
