Elizabeth Hewitt: The Ice Maiden
The Ice Maiden, by Elizabeth Hewitt, was published by Signet in June 1988. Cassandra Tilton was picky in her choice of husband but had finally settled on one when she met the handsome and scandalous Lord Adrian, who decided that he wanted her!
In a lot of ways, this cover by Allan Kass is unique. Our hero stands almost full facing the front and we see a very handsome man, indeed! The heroine is absolutely lovely and her golden gown matches the color of her hair. Her face is striking! I like the use of jade gems as an accent. The screen behind them is almost garish in relation to the couple but I like the peacock on the chair!
