Dorothy Mack: The Blackmailed Bridegroom

The Blackmailed Bridegroom by Dorothy Mack is the first of twelve books by Mack that Allan Kass illustrated. She is one of the earlier Signet Regency authors.

This book was published in February 1984 by Signet and is the story of April Wendover and how she blackmailed Lord Adam Glenville into proposing to her after he had snubbed her family. However, she wasn't ready for what came after the vows had been said!

Allan Kass illustrates our couple seated on a bench in a garden. Our hero is typical Kass with strong, well defined features. Our heroine is pretty in a very low cut gown of soft pink. She seems hesitant to accept his attention. I like how Allan seems to capture a moment and also shows us detail of the scene besides always drawing the people in exact lifelike dimensions.
