The Rake - Mary Jo Putney One of my all-time favorite romances. Picture-perfect.

Reginald Davenport has one last chance at redemption, he's drinking too much, but Strickland, his boyhood home, is returned to him. He's assured that the current estate manager A. E. Weston is extremely competent and he can live off the income. But Weston is Allie Weston hiding from her past, complete with the guardianship of three minors. Reginald, after a couple mishaps, becomes a reformed alcoholic. Allie realizes that she's an attractive woman and Reginald shows her how lovely she truly is.

A wonderful surprise ending when Allie's past catches up to her.

Themes: ugly duckling turning into swan, the transformation of an alcoholic into a highly desirable man, the three charming children

And a great happily ever after for all.
