Vanessa Gray: The Dutiful Daughter
January 1980 saw the publication of Vanessa Gray's The Dutiful Daughter, an early Signet Regency. Chloe Rothwell is 24, but comes into an inheritance which lures many suitors to her door. She struggles with choices and duty.
Allan Kass shows our couple standing at a sundial on a pretty summer day. Our heroine is cheery in a bright yellow day dress, which is simple in its decoration. Her short hair and no jewelry is unusual for Kass. Our blond hero is handsome in his red jacket and the background vista of the park and bridge are lovely.
Vanessa Gray also wrote under the names Jacquelyn Aeby and Jocelyn Carew.
