Norma Lee Clark: The Marriage Mart
The Marriage Mart was published in March 1984 and written by Norma Lee Clark. It is a regency story about Georgina, who is marrying the Earl of Trowbridge after her first season. She finds out after her marriage that she can't be content with a wandering husband, but craves his love for herself, alone.
Allan Kass illustrates an almost gothic feel to this cover, with our couple outside a dark mansion in the evening. Our heroine is pretty in a pink evening gown and our hero compliments her in his red jacket. This is a classic Kass illustration with the detail to the steps and foliage. I love the look of this cover with the positioning of the couple and background details.
