Reforming Lord Ragsdale
Emma Costello owes a debt of honor to one of the most dishonorable lords in the realm. The infamous Lord Ragsdale is as sinful as he is rich and as heartless as he is handsome.

Step three - don't fall in love with him.
A dissolute lord and a woman determined to save him from his profligate ways find healing and surprising love in this classic Regency from one of the genre's best. Many of Kelly's traditional Regencies are being reprinted and are essential for those collections. -- Library Journal
