April Kihlstrom: An Outrageous Proposal

This book by April Kihlstrom was published in July 1998 and is one of the last illustrated by Allan Kass.

Lady Penelope Westcott agrees to a scheme by Geoffrey Talbot in order to stay single and stop others from nagging her to wed. They set up a pretend betrothal that Geoffrey hopes one day to make real!!

Even though this is one of Allan's later works, it's a stunningly detailed cover for someone in their 80's! The hero is tall and straight while the heroine is elegant as she leaves the carriage. The horses are well drawn along with the landscape in the background. It was sad not to see any Kass covers after 1998.
