Marion Chesney: My Dear Duchess

My Dear Duchess is another Chesney novel that Allan Kass illustrated. This book was published in September 1987 and is the story of Frederica who married Henry, the Duke of Westerland after both realized that they had need to marry. After Frederica's sister turned down Henry before he became a duke, he decides to marry her sister instead!

Allan Kass illustrates a beautiful cover for this book. Our heroine is lovely in pink. Note her gold jewelry and the black trim on her dress. Our hero is dashing in evening dress. I like how Allan makes every couple look different and is creative in the details. Look at the sunlight coming into the window! Another great illustration by Allan Kass.
