Georgette Heyer: The Foundling

The Foundling, by Georgette Heyer, was published in paperback by Berkley in April 1974.

This is the story of Gilly, the Duke of Sale, who ends up with an enchanting foundling named Belinda on his hands and asks for help from the one sensible lady he know and admires: Harriet! Can plunging into a dilemma help a man find his true love?

This cover by Allan Kass shows our young couple standing in an elegantly furnished room. The hero seems enamored with the heroine and I feel like both her fan and the large Chinese jar clash with the pose of this cover. We miss some of her dress's detail because of the size of her fan and how it's being held. I would rather have seen the front of the heroine as she plays with her pearl necklace.
