Charlotte Louise Dolan: The Counterfeit Gentleman
The Counterfeit Gentleman was published by Signet in August 1994 for Charlotte Louise Dolan. Bethia Pepperell is rescued from the sea by Digory Rendel. She doesn't want to like him since he's of low birth, but finds that he is the only man who she considers marrying!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple outside in a little village near the sea. Our couple wear coats over their dress. What intrigues me is the setting of this cover. You can almost smell the salt air! I like the houses climbing up the coast and the tall sailboats in the harbor.
