Overview

An old favorite with a bright new look.
The fifth Earl of Torgreave, Rupert Manningford, has determined to reform his rakish ways. Ten years of dissolute living have brought him no pleasure, and offer no future. He returns to sobriety and eschews gambling and debauchery in his effort to reform. It has even crossed his mind to find and marry a virtuous lady-- if one will accept him--and get himself an heir.
His plans are disrupted by the arrival of a beautiful young Scottish woman. Miss Cordelia Tyninghame of Edinburgh. Her appearance reveals a remarkable mystery, a puzzle that defies understanding. Their search for comprehension takes them from the ice of the Frost Fair to the beginning of the London season. Propinquity conducts them to love, but love will lead only to anguish until the mystery is resolved. And that will alter Delia's past, Rupert's future, and the lives of everyone around them, perhaps even allow love to heal their hearts and transform their lives.

Editorial Reviews

The Word on Romance - Anonymous Reviewer
I found The Rake's Reflection to be an intriguing tale of surprise twists and conflict galore ... Lesley-Anne McLeod does a wonderful job of drawing the reader along and keeping them in agonizing suspense ... Whether you are a Regency fan or not, I think any reader will find The Rake's Reflection to be a captivating story of reconciliation, sacrificial love, and romance.

Meet the Author

Lesley-Anne McLeod has loved all things British for longer than she can remember. So it was natural that when she turned to writing fiction she should write Regency romances, those uniquely English historical romances in the tradition of Jane Austen.
Lesley-Anne has been writing for twenty-five years and has written five Regency romances and several Regency short stories. She has published articles on antiques and collectibles, and has also free-lanced in business writing. Book-selling was her career for nearly ten years; she owned her own bookstore for three of those enjoyable years. She belongs to the Saskatchewan Romance Writers and treasures the support and friendship that group offers.
Lesley-Anne is married and has one daughter. She lives on the prairies of Canada which are distant from Regency England in time and thought, but which retain an echo of Great Britain in history and tradition.
