Sandra Heath: The Makeshift Marriage
The Makeshift Marriage by Sandra Heath was published by Signet for its regency romance line in May 1983. Laura Milbanke was visiting Venice when she impulsively married Sir Nicholas Grenville after he fought a duel for her. Now they've returned to England and both are regretting the marriage when they see others that they might have married!
Allan Kass pictures our couple on the canal in Venice in a gondola and we see all of the romance of that city! Our couple seem in love as they share an embrace. This is an older Kass illustration and I like the detail of the heroine's face along with her pink dress. The lighting is interesting, too. It seems to focus on the people and is darker behind them.
