Audrey Blanshard: An Affair of Dishonour

An Affair of Dishonour is the first book illustrated by Allan Kass that I have in my collection. It was published by Fawcett in January 1981.

2 men, the Earl of Begbroke and Major Guy Hipsley, are rivals who are competing for the love of Miss Anne Thouvenal, a beautiful girl who is half English and half French.

Allan Kass paints a unique picture for this cover. It has our couple sitting on a chaise lounge with the hero's leg in a cast. Both are in day dress, with our hero very informally attired. What is interesting in this cover is the chaise and fireplace mantel which give the picture some definition.
