Bride to the King
Bride to the King is #123 in the Bantam series and was published in July 1980. It is the beginning of 6 "pink" romances, where Bantam changed the covers to a 1/2 picture and framed Cartland's name in pink, her favorite color. I think consumers didn't care for it as much as the full covers, since they changed back after 6 books.
This title is about Zosina, daughter of the Arch Duke of Lutzelstein. Her marriage has been arranged to the King of Dorsia, but she falls in love with the Regent, Sandor, instead. Find out what happens next in this dramatic story by Barbara Cartland!
Francis Marshall shows our couple as they meet. Our heroine, pretty in pink, curtsying to the hero. Unfortunately, it's not as big of a picture, but you can see others in the background and a fern blocking a window. Another great cover by Marshall. Click on it to enlarge.
