Janet Caird: The Loch

Janet Caird writes The Loch, which may be one of the first Gothic Romances that Allan Kass illustrated in my blog. This book was published in March 1974 and is a story of Janet Ogilvy who is intrigued by the caves that appeared after a tidal wave and she's worried about her love, Alan, who may be in danger.

Allan Kass paints an interesting cover in a typical gothic fashion with our heroine in the center of the cover with a haunted looking house in the background and the loch of the title calm and quiet. She is dressed in a long sleeved sweater and long skirt, but very different than the regency covers he mainly painted. I hope that you enjoy the gothic covers and the differences with the regencies.
