Allan Kass told me in a letter that this series of young adult books were some of his favorite to read and illustrate! I hope you enjoy all of the covers. This one shows our young hero and heroine sitting in a lush green glade. I like the purple of her skirt and am always amazed at how this cover would fit a book published now in 2014!

This book is about Caroline Percival who is governess in the Brangley household and is dreading the Christmas season because of the unwanted attentions of Lord Marchton and her desire for his half brother, Guy.
Allan Kass gives us a ballroom setting for this cover which shows our heroine getting some attention from a handsome hero! I like the sage color of her gown and the wreath of flowers in her hair.

Allan Kass gives us a more mature couple for this cover and one who cares for each other. I like the formal dress and especially the jewelry of the heroine. The hero is enthralled and dashing in his almost purple coat. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Allan Kass paints a rural scene for this cover with our heroine in country attire picking flowers in a little walled garden. I like that she seems unaware of the hero! The setting is also lovely with the river flowing gently in the background.

I like the unusual pose of our couple on this Allan Kass cover. The heroine is lounging against the cabinet while the hero looks down. Both are dressed for dinner and in a room that is very elegant. There is a suggestion of intimacy in their relationship which is sweet.

Allan Kass shows our couple at a stagecoach stop where the heroine looks to be leaving and the hero urging her to stay. This cover is interesting because while the people and coach are detailed, the background isn't. This is one of Allan's earlier regency covers, too.

Allan Kass creates a picture of our couple in a casual pose near the seaside which seems foreign to the blurb on the back cover and makes the reader wonder if the heroine found the freedom she was seeking? I like the colors and the pink wildflowers nearby.
