Leigh Haskell: The Vengeful Viscount
Leigh Haskell's book, The Vengeful Viscount, was published by Signet in November 1990. Felicity Bellwood was a beauty enjoying all that the London season had to offer, but she was not ready to get married! Her favorite beau, Justin Havilland, was also of the same mind. As they spend time together, they seem to be perfect for one another except that he is recovering from the death of his wife and feels a failure as a husband.
Allan Kass creates a brilliant picture here of our couple dancing at a ball. The colors in their clothing are rich and bold! Our heroine wears an exquisite hairpiece that compliments her decorated gown while our hero is dashing in purple and gold! I like the background of the ballroom with its long windows and gilt ceiling. Click to enlarge!
