The Marquis Wins
The Marquis Wins is #83 in the Camfield series and was published in July 1990. Set in the gambling town of Baden-Baden, the Marquis of Crowle is stunned to meet Daniela, a young heiress, in the garden. She is being married off to her stepmother's lover and he is determined to help her avoid this fate.
We see our couple on the yacht streaming through the countryside. I like the castle in the background and the fact that our hero is dressed as if to sail, but our heroine is in her wedding gown, since he's just rescued her! The cover is intriguing enough to say "pick me up and read me"!
