Kiss the Moonlight
Kiss the Moonlight is #60 in the Bantam series and was published in April 1977. It is the story of Athena, whose grandmother has arranged her marriage to the Prince of Parnassus. She runs to Delphi to pray about her future marriage when she meets Orion and gets caught up in an adventure with the outlaw Kazandis!
Francis Marshall illustrates a beautiful picture for this cover of our hero and heroine getting married in a Greek ceremony. They are dressed in Greek costume and it is one of my favorite Marshall illustrations! You can sense the beauty and peace of the area where they celebrate their vows and their deep love for each other. It is a wonderful cover for a great story!
