Nadine Miller: The Duke's Dilemma

Nadine Miller's The Duke's Dilemma was published by Signet in February 1996. Emily Haliburton's cousin, the beautiful Lucinda, has caught the eye of the Duke of Montford as he is seeking a wife. When the two girls visit his estate, he notices Emily and a kiss begins a comedy of manners that will end up in marriage.

Allan Kass shows our couple kissing while outside in a storm. Our hero is casually dressed and may have run to get the heroine out of the approaching storm. I like her jaunty hat which compliments her gown of raspberry. I also wonder if the lightning is a subtle nod to their passion?
