Megan Daniel: Amelia
Amelia is the first book that I have authored by Megan Daniel and illustrated by Allan Kass. It was published by Signet in November 1980. Amelia is a society beauty and all of London watches to see who she will choose as a husband: Sir Julian Denventer or the Marquis of Tyrone?
Allan Kass paints a wonderful cover for this book! Our couple stands in a embrace in a open hallway. Our heroine is a lovely redhead with a elaborate hairdo, which looks hard to duplicate, much less illustrate! Our hero is in love with the heroine and has an athletic feel to him. As usual, look at the background details: the painting above the doorway, the Chinese porcelain, etc. Click on the picture to enlarge.
