April Kihlstrom: Dangerous Masquerade

Dangerous Masquerade by April Kihlstrom was published in April 1992 by Signet. Rebeca Stanwood, an American visiting in London and in order to escape the attentions of Lord Templeton, she becomes a housemaid and hides in the house of Oliver Ransford, who also becomes intrigued with this new pretty servant!

Allan Kass shows our heroine in her servant garb: a loose fitting bodice and simple dress with an unadorned red cape over all. Her hair isn't dressed and she wears no jewelry. The hero is relaxed without a jacket and his sleeves rolled up. The walled garden is pretty and I like the sundial behind.
