Claudette Williams: Jewelene

Jewelene by Claudette Williams was published by Fawcett in 1979.  It's the story of the Marquis of Lyndhurst who is masquerading as someone untitled to see if a woman could love him for himself. He meets Jewelene but doesn't realize that she's also masquerading!

Allan Kass shows our couple at the gaming table and our heroine is lovely in red and diamonds while the hero looks on in appreciation. It's lovely in the details: note the hands holding cards and the action and movement of the people. This is Allan Kass's brilliance in illustrating; we can almost feel them making their discards and bets.
