Elizabeth Chater: Milady Hot at Hand
Milady Hot-at-Hand was published by Fawcett in February 1981 and is the story of Andrea, who disguises herself as a boy in order to find the murderer of her father.
Allan Kass paints our couple outside near a river with our heroine in male riding clothes. She has short curly hair and is holding a branch while our hero is tall and strong. He wears clothing of the Georgian period: a long waistcoat and outer coat. His hair is long and in a queue. It's a pastoral scene and quite a different illustration from Allan's usual elegant regency covers!
