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.
