Vanessa Gray: A Lady of Property
A Lady of Property was published in April 1988 by Signet for it's Regency Romance series and is written by Vanessa Gray. Charlotte Forester is an heiress who is determined to be loved for herself, instead of her wealth. She ends up with many adventures, as a governess and runaway, before finding true love.
Allan Kass illustrates our couple outside on a portico. Our heroine is wearing a lilac empire day dress with pearl jewelry while our hero, who is embracing her, is handsome in a red coat. Her auburn hair blends into his coat! I like the details of the stairway in the background and the sunlight gleaming off the column.
