The Patient Bridegroom
The Patient Bridegroom is #141 in the Camfield series and was published in May 1995. The Earl of Rayburne, on return from India, finds his estate neglected. His uncle has stolen his fortune and the earl agrees to an arranged marriage with his father's enemy. Ansella Frazer agrees but is terrified of this stranger and soon the couple are united as danger creeps into their married life.
These covers remind me of the Victorian fashion which made a bit of a comeback in the 1990's. There was a magazine that promoted it called Victoria and this cover is evocative of that style.
