Clare Darcy: Rolande
Rolande is next in our Clare Darcy lineup of Allan Kass illustrated books. This book was published by Signet in March 1979. Rolande is a story of a girl who is an actress who is hired to impersonate a lost heir. She falls into a lot of danger and realizes that she'd rather not impersonate this lost youth, but be herself and be loved by Jasper Carrington, who hired her!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple at a party. Our heroine is dressed as a female and wears a pretty combination of plum and silver. Our hero is wearing black formal wear and leans over the edge of the intricate bench that our heroine sits upon. Again, note Allan's detail in the background of the cover.
