Charlotte Louise Dolan: The Substitute Bridegroom
Next comes The Substitute Bridegroom by Charlotte L. Dolan, published by Signet in February 1991. Elizabeth Goldsborough ended up wed to Captain Darius St. John after an unfortunate accident. Can a marriage that has begun so become one of love?
Allan Kass illustrates our couple outside near a park. Our heroine is pretty in a creamy colored day dress and carries a straw hat. I like the details on her dress with the lace edging and the purple sash, that matches her hat. Our hero wears a dark blue jacket and embraces the heroine from behind. Note the carriage in the background and the railings in front. Again, Allan is great with the details. Enjoy!
