Sheila Walsh: Lord Gilmore's Bride

Lord Gilmore's Bride by prolific regency author Sheila Walsh, was published by Signet in April 1979 and is one of the older in this line of regency romances. Pilar was a member of a traveling band of gypsies until Lord Gilmore impulsively marries her and then seems to regret it.

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in Georgian dress as they stand in a dark hallway. The heroine is young and pretty; the hero dangerous looking. We get a menacing feel from this cover which the dark detailed wood enhance. The garment thrown onto the chair gives the scene a bit of normality.
