Barbara Hazard: A Surfeit of Suitors
March 1983 is Signet's publication date of A Surfeit of Suitors by Barbara Hazard. Lady Georgina Spalding is 25, but is courted by a variety of suitors including the dashing American, David Linwood and Regency rake, Lord Holland! Which will she pick?
This cover by Allan Kass is unique since it's a mix of casual and elegant. The pose of our couple, their clothing, and the setting all scream casual, but the stone bench with the large planter has elegance about it. I like that our couple seems comfortable with each other and that Allan compliments the color of their clothing. We don't know if this was a planned meeting or a casual encounter. All I know is we are transported into the picture!
