Rake's Reform. Afraid not, he answered with a complete lack of apology.

Afraid not, he answered with a complete lack of apology. I blame it upon a youth spent in hells and houses of ill-repute, not to mention the houses of the aristocracy and Parliament, of course. I have no connection with the Rectory and no fondness for reforming tracts. I am delighted to hear it, he said without the slightest trace of embarrassment. Especially since it seems we are to be neighbours.

Jonathan Lindsay was surprised when he was confronted by the ever-passionate Miss Janey Hilton.

Janey's life has been a difficult one. Her grandfather has made a name and a fortune for himself in trade, but her mother falls for a man "who is no gentleman" and marries him. The grandfather turns his back on them and will have nothing to do with his daugther again. They move to the Colonies where Janey grew up. Life is hard there fighting Indians and the land, but when both of Janey's parents are killed by smallpox her grandfather comes to get her and take her back to England. He tells her to say little about her life in the Colonies and try to be a nice English lady. He becomes ill and dies but leaves her as a ward to The Filmore Family - Mr. and Mrs. Filmore, daughter Annabel, and son Piers. They are a horrible bunch. They cause her nothing but trouble throughout the entire story. There are a series of "accidents" that some or all of the Filmores may be responsible for because Janey is only 5 months away from reaching age 21 and inheriting a large sum of money and control leaving the Filmores with nothing. The workers in the area are also near revolt due to more modern machinery taking their jobs and reducing their pay. Of course, Mr. Filmore is their enemy and Janey is their friend causing further problems for Janey. The only bright spot in Janey's life is meeting Jonathan Lindsey. There is an instant spark between them. Jonathan has a history of being a rake - gambling and using and discarding women one after another without a care. However, he has become weary of the life. He has won the neighboring house to Janey's in a card game, and has come to see what his winnings look like. The house is in ill repair and the grounds overgrown with weeds but there are possibilities with it. He is undecided what to do about it - stay or leave - but having met Janey makes him want to see more of her so he is staying for a while. The main character in this story is most certainly Janey. She is quite the woman. Jonathan is her Galihad although he says he's not several times throughout the story. There is never a dull moment as more and more information is disclosed about both Janey and Jonathan's past lives, the revolt about to happen, the Filmore's and their plans against Janey, and the love story developing between Janey and Jonathan. This book and author was a complete surprise to me. I bought the book as a collection of Regency stories and had never heard of Marie-Louise Hall but you can bet I'll be reading some more of her books now. It is certainly a book worthy reading.
American Heroine who manges amongst other things to get caught in a man trap. Lots of social issues. Mention of Peelers so definitely post Regency unless the author has her details wrong.
