When the disreputable rake Maxwell Longford, Earl of Merimont, wins a country estate in a game of piquet, he is overjoyed finally to be out from under his father's heavy thumb and have a chance to try out some of his agricultural and management ideas. However, when he arrives at Redrock House and learns that not only is it occupied by the unlucky card player's niece and her invalid mother but that the ironclad lease is in effect for another 75 years, he is forced to compromise--with unexpectedly romantic results. A conflicted hero who finally grows up, a fiery heroine who learns to trust, and an old plot with a lively new spin come together beautifully in a classic, well-researched Regency that is a bit more sensual and darkly realistic than some. Lane has written a number of Regency romances, and a sequel to this one is in process. She lives in the San Francisco area. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
