Barbara Hazard: The Dreadful Duke
Barbara Hazard's, The Dreadful Duke, was published by Signet in November 1985. Lady Juliet Manchester is in her 30's and unmarried, but is concerned about the Duke of Severn's 13 year old twin girls, who are motherless. She is not interested in becoming his wife, but the girls really need a mother!
Allan Kass poses our couple at the edge of an ornamental lake. It's an interesting pose since we see little of the hero since the heroine hides him from view. She is the focus of the cover and pretty in a simple day dress embellished with lace. I like how she leans into him!
