Georgette Heyer: Cousin Kate

Cousin Kate by Georgette Heyer is a Fawcett novel published in May 1976. Orphan Kate Malvern is invited to live with her aunt because she wishes Kate to marry her son, Torquil. However, Torquil isn't quite sane and his cousin Philip is more attractive....

Allan Kass's cover is one of his best. Our heroine is exceedingly elegant and the hero seems pensive as he gazes down at her. They sit in a richly decorated room with the painting over the fireplace being the focus. I really like how the heroine plays with her strand of pearls and her lilac dress is ethereal.
