Love and the Marquis
Love and the Marquis is #4 in the Camfield series and was published in August 1982. The Pan version (UK) was published in 1982, also.
Imeldra is happy to be done with school until she realizes that her father plans to send her to her grandmother's house because of his indiscretions. She flees to a nearby empty estate where a friend is working only to meet the Marquis of Marizon!
The (US) Camfield version shows our couple sitting on a white wrought iron bench in an embrace. Again, I'm not enthused with the cover artist, but it's a pretty picture.
The (UK) Pan version is much nicer. We see our couple sitting and talking, but you have a view of scenery outside of the window and while our heroine probably wouldn't be carrying a matching green fan, I believe everything else about her day dress is proper! They look as if they're in a gazebo or tower room. Not too sure about the statue above the heroine, though! Scary!
