Judith Harkness: The Admiral's Daughter
Next we turn to author Judith Harkness, who wrote 5 Signet Regencies which Allan Kass illustrated. The Admiral's Daughter was published in April 1980. All Maggie had ever heard was hatred towards the Ramblay clan, so she is astounded when her father consigned her to their care and is unsettled by the Lord of the house!
I like this cover by Allan Kass. It's typical of his earlier work with our finely featured heroine with her gold bangle bracelets and a richly detailed surrounding. She is holding a rose from the bowl on the table that the hero may have given to her and seems a bit unsure about his embrace. I also like the simplicity of her gown against the hero's black coat.
