June Calvin: The Jilting of Baron Pelham

The Jilting of Baron Pelham was published in December 1994 by Signet for June Calvin. This is one of 2 books that Allan Kass published for her. This is the story of Davida who is new to London and being pursued by three very different gentlemen with three very different agendas!

I really like this cover by Allan Kass. Our couple is outside enjoying a picnic in a very pretty spot. Looking at the cover, it suggests that our couple is pausing in their walk to the gazebo in the background where they plan to picnic. Our heroine is bright in a yellow dress and the daisy that the hero is presenting her compliments her dress. He is informal in a vest and trousers. Note his belt, which looks very modern! The apple, checked cloth and stone bridge all add to the beauty of the cover.

London society was an adventure for a young miss looking for a husband. One had to be wise to navigate through the suitors and gentle in order to catch one!
