The Reluctant Rake by Jane Ashford

Sir Richard Beckwith goes to a notorious club one night and bids on a lovely young maiden. 
He pays 2,000 quid and wins her. His reason is to have the girl free from a degrading experience and he is sadly mistaken. Bess, the maiden wants to become a kept woman, not a woman who has a job. The trouble is that Sir Richard is engaged to the beautiful Miss Julia Devere. Julia has seen Sir Richard with Bess and she suddenly realizes that she will have to fight to keep her fiance’. She is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that they are married! This story is a fun, charming story. Four stars for the characters and clever plot!
