Nadine Miller: The Madcap Masquerade

The Madcap Masquerade is next in our Signet series from author Nadine Miller. This story, published in August 1998, makes it one of Allan Kass's last illustrations. It's the story of Maeve Barrington who takes the place of her twin at the estate of her betrothed, the Earl of Lynley, but his idea of making a marriage of convenience soon disappear with her arrival!

It's hard to believe that Allan Kass was 80 when he created this cover! We still see detail and precision that embodied his earlier covers. I like this scene where our heroine seems shy while the hero isn't afraid to show his affection in the ballroom! Her emerald green gown sets off her red hair to perfection!
