Evelyn Richardson: The Willful Widow

The Willful Widow by Evelyn Richardson was published in January 1994. Diana Hatherill was a widow who had no desire to remarry and none tempted her until Lord Justin St Clair burst onto the scene with the intention to seduce her!

Allan Kass shows our couple at a masquerade and it's fun to see the different costumes and their detail. Our hero's costume seems a bit risque and the heroine's pretty. I really like the Elizabethan lady in the background. Masquerades were not unusual and sometimes people just wore a long cloak, or domino, over their evening clothes along with a mask.
