Vanessa Gray: The Innocent Deceiver
October 1980 saw the publication of The Innocent Deceiver by Vanessa Gray. Fenella Morland is banished to her country estate because of scandal, but her family finds out that it follows her there in the form of two brothers!
Allan Kass illustrates this Signet Regency Romance by showing our couple in an opulent bedroom. Our heroine is enjoying the embrace of the hero and wearing a rose colored day dress with gold accents. The bedchamber is decorated with turquoise furnishings and we see an elegant statuette on the marble topped table. What's great about Allan's illustrations are all the little details that pop up as you observe. Click to enlarge the photo.
