A Duke in Danger

A Duke in Danger is #175 in the Bantam series and was published in July 1983. The Duke of Harlington has just inherited and leaves the army of occupation to go back home to England. He finds out that some valuable pieces from the estate have been pawned and goes to Harlington Castle to confront his cousin Alvina. Between putting the Castle back together and trying to find a wife to thwart his heir, Jason, the Duke and Alvina find a true love.

This is an interesting cover where our couple stand at the top of a tower on the castle roof. I consider this one of the early "nightgown" covers where our heroine is scantily clad and still manages to save the hero!

  1. i actually have an excuse for this cover as the scene depicted is very accurate - the heroine was actually wearing a transparent nightgown and forgot her shawl.
