Joan Smith: An Affair of the Heart

Prolific author Joan Smith wrote An Affair of the Heart in 1977 for Fawcett crest books. Regency romances were beginning their popularity and Smith was one of the earlier authors of the genre. This is a lighthearted story about two sisters and their beau!

Allan Kass illustrates an elegant cover for this romance with our couple standing in a library. The heroine wears a simple gown but an elaborate hairstyle! The hero is Kass handsome. Some of these early covers are his best and I wish the picture was larger for viewing. I love the beauty of the couple and detail he takes with their clothing and setting.
