Dorothy Mack: The Counterfeit Widow

The Counterfeit Widow was published in November 1996 and is the story of Charity Leonard who disguises herself as a widow in order to be her sister's guardian as she has her season in London. The sparks begin to fly when Lord Tyndale sees through her disguise and threatens to reveal her secret!

Allan Kass illustrates our couple on a balcony where a stately coach is moving below. We see the gates to a park or mansion. Our couple is handsomely dressed and I especially like the fob hanging out of the hero's pocket. I like that they seem to be content in each others company.

  1. As usual, very attractive. Looking at the coach, it's the gold state coach, the coronation coach, and is specifically mentioned in the book.
