Our hero is definitely dashing in this cover by Allan Kass! He paints the heroine in this scene and she is garbed in an elegant white gown with creamy accessories. I like seeing his painting equipment sitting on a nearby table. Allan always gets his details correct.

This cover by Allan Kass is interesting to me because it could almost be a modern day couple with a few tweaks of clothing and hairstyle. There is a 1960's feel to the colors and styles of the clothes or maybe it's the white picket fence that has the modern touch.

Allan Kass shows our elegant couple standing in a pensive pose. Our heroine is dressed simply but her hair is braided prettily. She holds a rose to her face while the hero embraces her. His greatcoat is almost overwhelming on him and a focal point of the picture.

Allan Kass creates a cover within a circle. We see a very elegant heroine with the hero behind her. She is the most striking element in the picture with her brunette hair and plain yellow gown but Allan adds other details that make you feel as if you've intruded into the room!

I like this cover by Allan Kass. We see the rakish Dameral worried about Venetia, who is elegant in her riding habit of gray. Unlike some of the Berkley covers, this one is pretty close to the characters in the novel.

Allan Kass portrays our couple taking a break from their riding. They sit on a stone bench near a church and we see a fountain nearby. I like the heroine's severe riding dress and wonder which horse is hers! She and the hero seem to have come to an understanding.

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in a vehicle which is appropriate since we read a lot about the toll road and gate in this novel. Our hero is well dressed in evening wear which is unlike most of the story and our heroine pretty in a light dress. I like that we see his concern about her evident problem.

Allan Kass created both covers and the first one for Signet is a favorite. We see our older hero with his enchanting heroine, both in Georgian garb, but very elegant. The heroine's fiery red hair is curled and ornamented with pearls and ribbons, which echo her elaborate gown of blue and rose. The hero wears a powdered wig and long burgandy coat with a gold waistcoat underneath.
The Fawcett cover shows our heroine in an ornate ball gown of green with rose decorations and the hero in red. They steal a minute away from a grand ball. This edition is harder to find, but beautiful.

Allan Kass creates a unusually plain cover for this book of our couple. Our hero is astride and injured on this winters day with our heroine on foot holding a pistol. She is definitely the focus of this cover as she stares behind looking for a villain!
