The Spinster and the Rake by Anne Stuart | LibraryThing
Spinster and the Rake Author: Anne Stuart Publish Date: As a maiden aunt, Gillian Redfern lives as an unpaid servant to her demanding family. Little wonder she finds the attentions of a rake distracting, and even less wonder that her usual good sense begins to unravel when Lord Marlow takes her in his arms. Ronan Patrick Blakely, Lord Marlow, is a man of great charm and little moral character, a gambler, a womanizer, and handsome as sin to boot.
He has no qualms about placing a wager on the virtue of one small, shy spinster. But Lord Marlow is anme to discover that Miss Redfern is more siren than spinster.

She amuses him, arouses him, and, much to his epinster, makes him a better man. Gillian will discover, in turn, that Lord Marlow possesses the power to turn her into a very wicked woman. The rake and the spinster are poised to find a love that neither could have imagined.
This was a re-publish from a regency romance. The heroine had a feisty, wanton side to her that made stuagt like her. She was being used by her family as a built in baby sitter. She was made to feel meek and submissive. All of which, Ronan Blakely proved to Gillian Redfern that she was not.
Ronan, while intrigued by the elder Redfern sister, did not act the gentleman at all. In fact, he was spimster callous toward Gillian which did not look good on a hero. That in itself was a defining feature for me.
This story was off the beaten path from normal regencies and though epinster was an awful, hurtful truth exposed, Gillian was the perfect lady and I was proud to call her my heroine book friend.
