Elizabeth Hewitt: A Private Understanding
A Private Understanding by Elizabeth Hewitt was published by Signet for their regency romance line in January 1990. Claudia Taverer wagered her hand in marriage to Lindsay Allister, a man she didn't love but whose fortune her family needed. He, in turn, needed a wife. All was well until his rakish cousin shows up and decides to convince Claudia that she loved him!
I like this cover by Allan Kass because it is so colorful! Our couple are at an outdoor party and while the hero wears the colors of nature, the heroine is very pretty in purple and green! She accents these colors with a pink fan and rose. The pagoda in the background along with the other couple demonstrate Allan's attention to detail, which was always better than most romance illustrators.
