Sandra Heath: Shades of the Past
Shades of the Past, a regency/time travel romance by Sandra Heath, was published by Signet in June 1996. Laura Reynolds, a modern day actress flies through time and she plays the role of a lifetime: a dead ringer for a handsome Lord's late wife!
Allan Kass brings a modern touch to this cover with our heroine's flowing hair. We see a prominent clock, symbolizing the timed theme of our story. Our heroine is dressed in regency clothing, but has a modern feel to her because of her hairstyle. Our hero is handsome and wealthy. This is one of Allan's later covers and we can see his signature at the bottom right corner.
Regency time travel romances have been popular, but not very many have been published. Jo Ann Simon wrote a few from the 1980's that were good. Signet has also done a few. They were a precursor to the gothic and paranormal genre.
