Walking to Wonderland

Walking to Wonderland is #113 in the Camfield series and was published in January 1993. The Duke of Eaglefield accepts a wager to become a "regular person" by walking from London to his ancestral home. One of his adventures come when he discovers Alysia, who is running away from an unwanted marriage and manages to help her escape. However, as much as he admires her, he can't marry an unknown girl, can he?

We see our couple near a small waterfall where the heroine is praying for help and the hero happens to be walking along. Her dress is clearly Victorian in style, along with her hairdo. The hero's garb still has a Regency look to its style.

Born of Love

Born of Love is #112 in the Camfield series and was published in December 1992. Lady Marcia Woode has become a sensation in London after she dismisses all of her suitors. Her father takes her to France where she meets the Duc de Roux and they become friends while deciding not to fall in love!!

This cover by Forlag shows our hero rescuing the heroine during a dramatic nighttime setting. We get a glimpse of the chateau, but otherwise wouldn't know where the story was set. The horse is the dominant figure in this picture and we get the feeling that the artist enjoys drawing them.
