April Kihlstrom: An Improper Companion

An Improper Companion was published by Signet in February 1983 and is the story of Heather Wade who is forced to leave school once she finds out that she has no family but her first job finds her quickly married to Sir Leslie Kinwell and then trying to find her way into society.

This cover is a typical early Allan Kass one: it's detailed, has a strong hero and beautiful heroine, and the colors are gorgeous. Our couple stand in a small parlor or office. I love the heroine's dress; even though it is for daytime and one color, it has some elegant embellishments and her brooch and hair ribbon are perfect accessories. We get the feeling that they care for each other, even if it's hard to say the actual words.
