Gail Eastwood: The Persistent Earl
March 1995 saw the publication of Gail Eastwood's The Persistent Earl. Lady Phoebe Brodfield is a widow living in the same London mansion with the Earl of Devenham, who is recovering from war wounds. She believes that she is immune from his charm since she has decided to never fall in love again, but he is determined to win this lady!
Allan Kass illustrates our couple standing in a bookroom or library. Our heroine wears a pretty yellow day dress with a beautiful strand of pearls. Her black hair is piled high on her head and she wears button pearl earrings. Our hero is classically Kass in his pose and features. I like the details of the painting behind them and the ornate blue Chinese vase. Beautiful cover!!
