Joan Smith: La Comtesse

Joan Smith's La Comtesse was published by Fawcett in 1978. Renee, the French Countess, was the toast of London. Lewis Dashford, a British agent, wondered if she was spy or just playing a part.

This is an unusual cover for Allan Kass since it only depicts a heroine and no hero. I believe that covers with couples probably sold better but this is an example of Allan's talent. We have a very beautiful lady standing near a balcony where a party is going on down below. Note her tiara, expensive jewelry, and ornate accessories. The detail of the room is a perfect setting for her, too.
