Allison Lane: Lord Avery's Legacy
Considering that Allan was in his 80's by now, this is a wonderful cover. He told me that some of the demands were beginning to get crazy with the publisher wanting animals on the covers. He felt like the beauty of the Regency period was beginning to make way for gimmicks in order to sell books. Even though this cover has ostriches on it, we also get the elegance of the Regency in the clothing of the couple and see Allan's talent with a landscape.
