Elizabeth St. Clair: The Jeweled Secret

The Jeweled Secret by Elizabeth St. Clair was published by Signet in August 1978. This gothic romance is the story of Celeste who is invited to the mansion of exiled Russians to study their jewels and artwork. Was Nicholas part of the evil that she sensed there?

Allan Kass shows us a snow covered mansion with our heroine walking outside as if to escape from the evil inside. I'm sure artists had little scope for imagination with these covers; I can hear the art editors saying: "house, heroine, horror"!! This heroine is very pretty and I like the round tower of the mansion!
