Allan Kass shows our couple near a desk where the hero's trade is easily seen in the form of quill, ink, and paper. I wish the picture was bigger but it's almost as if our heroine was discovered in a room where she didn't belong!

This is an interesting cover by Allan Kass since we don't really see the heroine's face but only her profile. The hero is featured accepting a letter. The setting is unusual; maybe an art gallery or balcony of a famous building?

The cover by Allan Kass is gorgeous with our very handsome uniformed hero, our spirited heroine, and the beautiful scenic cove. The heroine's bold red gown highlights the red in the hero's uniform and keeps our eye on this electric couple. I'd hope the author was pleased with this illustration of her story!

Delsie is a teacher who married a dying man and inherited his house and daughter! Now she just has to deal with new brother in law! This book is reminiscent of Georgette Heyer's The Reluctant Widow.
Allan Kass illustrates a favorite cover here. We see a typically Kass hero comforting one of his beautiful heroines. Everything about her is exquisite: her hair, her gown, her jewelry, and her accessories. The room they stand in is almost too cluttered with the delft tiles to the stained glass.

Allan Kass shows our couple in front of an ornate bridge in the middle of a pretty lake. The hero and heroine seem in harmony as they walk close to one another. I like the hero's purple jacket which is a foil for the heroine's yellow gown. It's a shame that we don't see such artwork on romances anymore.

I've always like Allan Kass's illustrations that take place in ballrooms and this is no exception. Our couple dance divinely and it's fun to see their clothing, jewels, and the others depicted in the picture. Who wouldn't want to be part of that fun?

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in front of a window on a bright sunny day. Both hold a glass of wine and perhaps are celebrating, though the heroine looks pensive. The scenery is interesting with the curricle outside and the wrought iron railing. It's another pretty cover by Kass.
