Allan Kass creates a pretty cover for this story. It's one of my favorites!! The heroine is so pretty as she leans up against the hero and I love her olive gown which seems to make her part of the view. The hero is gorgeous and the house unbelievable! It's a calm, relaxing pose and I hope you enjoy it!

This is a later cover of Allan Kass's and we still get a feel for why he's such a great illustrator! Our couple sit on a modern looking iron bench. The brick circle and planter also give this cover a modern feel but the couple are essentially regency. I like the detail of the flower and little dog which makes this a comfortable picture.

Allan Kass creates a scene from the book, which looks like Romeo and Juliet! Our couple is dressed in costume and I'm sure Allan enjoyed the challenge which would have been a bit different than his usual elegant regency dress. I like the pink gown which suits the heroine's coloring and the flowing cape of the hero!

This is Allan Kass at his best! We get a beautiful view of the castle and the Scottish landscape along with an intimate look at our couple. The colors are fantastic and I really like our Kass hero who is calm and confident in his pursuit of the heroine!

Allan Kass illustrates our couple in a museum that contains statues and carvings; possibly the Elgin Marbles! Our heroine wears a walking outfit of lime green trimmed in pick which almost clashes with her red hair! The hero is young and dashing. I would have liked seeing the infamous emerald necklace, but you can't have everything!!

The only other place I've seen the name "Kilmeny" used was one of L. M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables) who wrote a book: Kilmeny of the Orchard.
Allan Kass shows a heroine who looks like a wild gypsy as she runs barefoot on rough ground. She is very enchanting and is set in a perfectly scary scene with the mansion and overcast skies. We don't know if she's being chased or just runs loose like this.

Allan Kass shows our heroine running on a boardwalk where a creepy mansion is behind her. It's an interesting picture with the house, carousel, and ferris wheel! The heroine is pretty in her white gown with dark fringe shawl. I like her flowing hair as it is whipped by the wind.

At first glance, this is a simply drawn cover by Allan Kass until you look deeper. I love the hieroglyphics carved on the round column next to the lovely heroine, who is dressed in a cool white robe. I like her gold jewelry of earrings and bracelet, which is a Kass touch! Note the building and palm trees in the background.
