Edith Layton: The Duke's Wager

The Duke's Wager is our next novel by Edith Layton and was published by Signet in February 1983. This book is a prequel to yesterday's The Disdainful Marquis in that it also contains the hero from that book, the Marquis of Bessacarr, who is a suitor to the hand of Regina Berryman. Along with the Duke of Torquay, they both are rivals in life and now love. Regina needs all of her instincts to decide which is her heart's desire.

I like this cover because we see both heroes with our heroine! Allan Kass does a superb job illustration the angelic duke with the rakish marquis and their jealousy. I think the heroine is gorgeous in her mint green ball gown and love her matching jewels. It's an elegant cover and one of Allan's best examples of his "early regency" work.
