GOTHIC TALES OF LOVE "Legend of the Seventh Virgin" Conclusion

According to legend, six novices living in a Cornish convent strayed from their vows and were turned to stone. 
The seventh faced quite a different fate. 
Years later when the convent became the family mansion of the St. Larnston family, fate beckoned to another young virgin.
Kerensa Carlee was only a cottage girl, but she possessed great ambition and greater beauty -- and she knew how to use them both.
Working in the legend-haunted mansion as a lady's maid, Kerensa began her perilous journey into womanhood.
She stirred old memories and mysteries, and brought to that quiet corner of Victorian Cornwall moonlight madness and an ancient vengeance . . . .
By the time this premiere issue of Marvel's Gothic Tales of Love appeared in 1971, Legend... was a certified best-seller and considered a classic of the genre...
So, presenting a condensed version of the novel was a clever marketing tool to boost sales of the new magazine.
Unfortunately, Gothic Tales of Love only lasted for three issues before disappearing into the mists of time...
Note: With over two hundred books credited to her various pen-names, Eleanor never published a single book under her married name, though she had numerous stand-alone novels and several novel series under her maiden name, Eleanor Burford (all of which were written after she married)!

We haven't decided yet what it'll be, but we can guarantee that...
