Michelle Kasey: The Beleagured Lord Bourne

Next we have some regency romances by Michelle Kasey, a pseudonym for author Kasey Michaels. The Beleaguered Lord Bourne was published by Signet in January 1986. The Earl of Bourne just wanted peace and pleasure after fighting in the wars but he ends up marrying Jane Maitland, who wanted to be wed as little as he, after saving her from a animal trap in the woods and stealing a kiss!

This cover by Allan Kass is very pretty. I really like the juxtaposition of the statue with the heroine--the drapes of fabric show the Grecian influence in Regency clothing. I also like how her shawl blends with her gown but has golden embroidery that makes it an elegant accessory. Our hero is mostly hidden, but we get a feeling that he does care about the heroine.
