Elizabeth Hewitt: The Worth Inheritance
Last in our list of Elizabeth Hewitt books illustrated by Allan Kass is The Worth Inheritance, published in July 1986. Lady Phillipa Worth was an heiress with a dilemma: two brothers wishing to marry her!
Allan Kass creates a very elegant and intimate cover with our hero fastening an emerald necklace around the heroine's neck. Her green gown is a perfect match and we get the impression that these may be a family heirloom or a gift. I like the juxtaposition of the mirror and how we seem to get a glimpse of this moment. The heroine's hair is beautifully curled while the hero is very handsome.
Elizabeth Hewitt wrote other regencies under Signet's line.
