Clare Darcy: Gwendolen

Gwendolen is next from Clare Darcy. Signet published this paperback in September 1979. Gwendolen fell in love and got quickly engaged to Captain Henry Belville of the navy. Now that he has been away, she doubts whether she really loves him and the romances of her sisters complicate the matter along with a handsome new Lord on the scene!

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in front of a fireplace. Our couple seem very taken with one another. Our heroine's pink gown has some interesting decoration. The carving of the goddess on the fireplace seems the most striking aspect of this cover. These past covers remind me of the ones that Allan did for Georgette Heyer's Berkley romances.
