Jennie Gallant: Olivia
Olivia was published in January 1981 for Fawcett books and is #89 in their Coventry Regency series. Jennie Gallant (Joan Smith) writes about a rich girl named Olivia that decides to become a high priced governess. She is employed by Lady Synge, but her brother, Lord Philmot, takes exception to her studies and methods!
Allan Kass illustrates a cover taking place at a ball. Our heroine wearing an elegant dress of jade green, sits while our hero leans over her chair. His features are almost pinched, which I think is fault of the pose, but I like the details of the other couples dancing and the marble topped table. Sorry it's not a better image.
