Catherine Coulter: Lord Harry's Folly
Lord Harry's Folly by Catherine Coulter was published by Signet in December 1980 for its Regency Romance line, which was beginning around this time. Another publisher, Fawcett, also had its own line of regency romances and Allan Kass illustrated quite a few of those, too. Personally, the best regency stories, outside of Georgette Heyer, were published in the 1980's!
Miss Henrietta Rolland was the lady of the hour! She was the belle of the ball. Too bad that she couldn't be satisfied with that, but had to masquerade as Lord Harry Monteith, a dashing young rake! Find out what happens when a girl bites off more than she can chew!
Allan Kass illustrates our heroine as a girl and with a most attentive admirer! Our heroine is pretty in her short curls and olive green gown. She wears a gold cape and bracelets that match. She seems to like the attentions of her admirer! Our hero has a exquisitely tied cravat and wears a black jacket. Note the ornate screen in the background, which were used to keep away drafts.
