Mary Jo Putney: The Would-Be Widow

July 1988 is the publication date for The Would-Be Widow by Mary Jo Putney. Jocelyn Kendal needed to marry in order not to lose a legacy, but when the duke she loved wouldn't marry, she struck a bargain with a dying man. This book by Putney is a prequel to The Controversial Countess.

Allan Kass creates a elegant lady and dashing military hero for the cover of this book. She has a pensive look as she arranges the flowers and he seems to be reassuring her. Note the line of miniatures paintings behind them which are probably family members.
