Afraid is #137 in the Bantam series and was published in April 1981. Five years earlier, the Duke of Darlington rescued 13 year old Felica from her cruel father, who was also his cousin. Now her father is dead and she is wealthy and the duke needs to protect her from the fortune hunters.
This is an interesting setting for this book since I believe it takes place mostly in Paris!! We see our pretty heroine, all in yellow, standing near a table where our hero is seated. It's a pretty scene, but a table on a sidewalk cafe in Paris would have been more apropos for this story!
