Claudette Williams: Sweet Disorder

Sweet Disorder by Claudette Williams was published by Fawcett in September 1981 for their Coventry Romance line. Venetia is told that she must marry one of her guardian's nephews in this merry romp of a romance!

I think this cover by Allan Kass is stunning. Our heroine is reading when the hero shows up and smiles. She is pretty in moss green and sits in an elegantly decorated room near a warm fire. I like the connection between the pair.

Claudette Williams: Sunday's Child

Sunday's Child by Claudette Williams was published in 1977 and is the story of Barbara Rochdale who needed to marry to gain her inheritance and the one person who she could rely on to help was Lord Belfort, until she fell in love with him!!

Allan Kass illustrates a picture of our heroine being toasted by no less than three gentlemen! She's lovely in her creamy ball gown and we don't know if one or all of them plan to escort her to a party. It's a different scene and one I hope you like.

Claudette Williams: Spring Gambit

Spring Gambit was published by Fawcett in 1976 and is the story of Nicole Beaumont who was the hit of the season with every gentleman but the one she wanted!

Allan Kass shows our couple in a box at the play or opera. It's an intimate setting in a public place and our heroine seems happy with her cavalier! I like her white gown and elegant shawl which is the only color that wouldn't clash with the decorations! It's an elegant picture that I hope you like.

Claudette Williams: Sassy

Sassy by Claudette Williams was published in December 1986 with an earlier release in 1977. Sassy is a teacher at a boarding school and content with her lot until mysterious things begin to happen and involve the Marquis of Dartmour!

This illustration by Allan Kass is singular for a regency romance cover by showing only the heroine of the story! I think it looks like an old fashioned painting that one could visit at a museum. The heroine is lovely in yellow and bold with a short haircut. She poses near a stream that is cool and serene.

Claudette Williams: Naughty Lady Ness

Naughty Lady Ness by Claudette Williams was published by Fawcett in October 1987 (an earlier edition came out in 1980). Lady Vanessa Grey was sent to Cornwall and discovered the strange happenings around Viscount Montlaine and decided to scandalize the countryside by finding out what was happening! This is a prequel to Mary, Sweet Mary.

I like this dashing cover by Allan Kass! It shows our couple near the sea and with danger approaching. It's intriguing and romantic enough to make me want to pick up the book and read the plot!

Claudette Williams: Myriah

Myriah by Claudette Williams is a regency romance and was published for Fawcett's line in 1978. Lady Myriah was running from an arranged marriage when she met a wounded stranger and in nursing him to health meets his handsome brother!

Allan Kass illustrates a sweet cover of our couple as they attend a ball. The hero is attempting to charm the heroine into dancing and she is lovely in her pink gown and matching hairband. I like the chandelier hanging over the room along with the carved wooden table nearby.

Claudette Williams: Mary, Sweet Mary

Mary, Sweet Mary was published by Fawcett in April 1988; an earlier issue was in 1980. Mary Montlaine decides to use Lord Severn in order to make Lord Richard jealous but the joke is on her when she falls in love with Severn!

Allan Kass places our couple at an evening's entertainment in this cover. Our couple is elegant as they stand talking among the crowd. My only complaint is with Fawcett for sticking the large title over the picture!
