Georgina Grey: Turn of the Cards
Turn of the Cards by Georgina Grey was published by Fawcett in 1979. Catherine Marlow went to live with her Aunt Harriet after her gambler father deserted her. However, Harriet has no plans to launch Catherine into society alongside her daughter and is thinking to marry her off to a dull widower. Catherine isn't planning on obeying her aunt!
Allan Kass illustrates a delightful cover for this story with our hero and heroine in a music room. I love the heroine's olive green gown, which is simply accented by a gold ribbon and shawl. Her expression is beautifully pensive as she leans against the hero. We get a feel of unrequited love with a mixture of hope.
