Clare Darcy: Letty
Letty was published in June 1981 for Clare Darcy by Signet. Letty runs away from an arranged marriage into the arms of Harry Tyne, who is a gentleman, but a gambler. He proposes to turn Letty into an enchantress and win a fortune, if he can only not fall in love with her, himself!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple in an elegant room. Our heroine lounges on a sofa, her blue day dress blending in with the blue of the sofa. Our hero stand behind and looks older than I would imagine the hero of this story to be! I like the effect of her pearl necklace as its being off center helps pose our heroine as lounging!
