Blanche Chenier: Regency Row
Regency Row was published by Fawcett in 1978 and is written by Blanche Chenier. I have a few books that Allan Kass illustrated for her, but she wrote other regencies. This book is about Charlotte, who is engaged to Justin, until she realizes that he has some kind of relationship with the Princess Amelia.
Allan Kass creates an interesting cover for this book with our couple at a party. They stand in a lobby of a large building or home and it's interesting to note the other people in the picture. She is pretty in a pink ball gown, low cut, with jewels, while our hero is handsome in a black jacket and buff trousers. Note that both wear gloves. What's interesting about this book is that the back cover has a smaller picture of the couple and notes "painting by Alan Kass". An interesting cover and fun read.
