Eileen Jackson: The Secret Bluestocking

The Secret Bluestocking was published by Signet in November 1985. Emma Waring was an author under an assumed name and enjoying a degree of success however, the most sought after eligible bachelor, Viscount Kinver, was interested in her and smart enough to figure out her secret!

Allan Kass sets this cover of our couple in Bath near the Pulteney Bridge, which is an actual bridge over the River Avon that you can see today! It looks like a nice fall or spring day since both wear gloves but our heroine isn't wearing a pelisse or coat. I like the plum theme of their clothing and the heroine wears a very feathery hat. They look like they've either met unexpectedly or are taking a break while walking to view the bridge, which now has shops inside it!
