Sylvia Thorpe: Captain Gallant

Captain Gallant by Sylvia Thorpe was published in February 1976. It is the story of Christina Westlake whose uncle had stolen her inheritance but she had a plan to get back her estate with the help of Captain Adrian Clare!

This is a very pretty cover by Allan Kass. I like the Georgian clothing which is a bit fuller and fussier than the later Regency styles. Our heroine's dress is low cut but very full skirted. The hero's cravet and cuffs are real lace! I also like seeing the heroine's long hair, which wasn't the style in the future. Note the rose arbor and cute fountain.
