Patricia Rice: Mad Maria's Daughter

Patricia Rice is a well known historical author and she wrote a few books for Signet. Mad Maria's Daughter was published in April 1992. Daphne Templeton encounters a highwayman on her way to her aunt's house that keeps her from accepting any other offer of marriage!

Allan Kass illustrates an interesting scene here with our hero highwayman holding up the carriage where we assume the heroine had been traveling inside! Her coat of blue is exquisite and her bonnet is a perfect match. We get a glimpse of a peach dress underneath. The hero is casually dressed and brandishes a long pistol. Note the detail of the carriage, horses, and driver behind.
