Sandra Heath: The Fawn's Folly
The Fawn's Folly by Sandra Heath was published in June 1998 and is one of Allan Kass's last illustrations for Signet. Anne Willowby is engaged to marry Gervase, the new Duke of Mowbray, but he has returned from Italy enchanted and only she can break the spell so they can find true love.
During the late 1990's, more regencies were written with fantasy themes in order to attract the large and growing paranormal readers.
Allan Kass didn't like the crazy elements that the publishers wanted him to produce into the illustrations. I assume this wasn't one of his favorites. However, it's a pretty cover of our couple and the fawn is enchantingly cute.
