Anne Douglas: Miss Caroline's Deception
April 1995 saw the publication from Signet of Anne Douglas's book: Miss Caroline's Deception. Caroline was living in the house of the Earl of Rycote, but she couldn't reveal anything about herself or her past. Who was she and from whom was she hiding?
Allan Kass illustrates our couple near an ornate fireplace. Our hero embraces our heroine and he has both of their eyes shut, which is uncommon in his paintings, but evokes the emotion of the couple. He wears a sky blue jacket while our heroine is pretty in a bright yellow dress with slashed sleeves and lace. Note her emerald jewelry! Again, Allan gets the details correct with a bronze bust on the mantel and paintings on the wall. This was the only cover he did for Anne Douglas. Enjoy!
