Mary Balogh: Snow Angel

Snow Angel was published by Signet in June 1991. It is another hard to find book by Mary Balogh and about the widowed Lady Rosamund who knew a tender love from her older husband. Sparks fly when the Earl of Wetherby rescues her from a winter accident and she stays in a secluded house with him. What happens during that intimate interlude and afterwards when they meet at a houseparty is the plot of this regency by Mary Balogh!

Allan Kass creates a cover with our couple at the scene of the accident. Note how the hero is helping with the broken wheel while she looks on. I love all of the colors in this picture along with the action of this cover. The hero wears a dark green greatcoat while our heroine is cheery in a red cape with hood, that compliments her dark hair. Note the interior of the coach, which looks as if it has room for 2 inside and a coachman and rider outside. A carriage like this one would be expensive to purchase and maintain, since it was drawn by at least 2 horses.
