Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373771665, Mass Market Paperback)She wasn't looking for love . . .
Her beauty rivaled only by her sensibility, Ventia Lanyon is nearly resigned to spinsterhood, thanks to the enormous amount of responsibility she inherited with a Yorkshire estate, an invalid brother and the lackluster efforts of two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then she meets her neighbor, the infamous Lord Dameral, a charming rake shunned by polite society -- exactly the type of man that a woman of quality should stay away from . . .
He wasn't looking for redemption . . .

Venetia features a remarkably independent heroine who falls deeply in love with the wrong man. Venetia Lanyon lives a quiet life until she meets her notorious neighbor Jasper, Lord Damerel, who would marry her in a heartbeat if he didn't think it would ruin her. Then she discovers a shocking family secret that changes everything ... "Georgette Heyer is unbeatable."--Sunday Telegraph "Miss Heyer has done it again in this vivacious story of Regency society ... Venetia is an amazing woman even for today."--Library Journal.
