Joan Smith: The Blue Diamond

Joan Smith's The Blue Diamond was published by Fawcett in October 1981 for its Coventry Romance line. This story is set in Vienna during the Congress while Napoleon was imprisoned on the island of Elba. Maria Kruger was interested in the handsome Lord Moncrief, but he seems more interested in Mlle Feydeau and her stunning jewels!

I've always like Allan Kass's illustrations that take place in ballrooms and this is no exception. Our couple dance divinely and it's fun to see their clothing, jewels, and the others depicted in the picture. Who wouldn't want to be part of that fun?
