Judith Harkness: Contrary Cousins
Contrary Cousins by Judith Harkness was published by Signet in September 1981 for their Regency Romance line. Lady Pendleton invites her two American nieces to London for the season in order to cause a sensation. Antonia and Serena, though, have their own ideas about a perfect match!
I like this cover by Allan Kass because it shows both of our couples in a ballroom setting. Our figures are dressed formally and it's interesting to see the different colors and styles that Allan uses to make this scene look realistic. I'm sure everyone will choose their favorite person in this busy, but elegant scene!
