This was a fairly decent old style regency. I read this many years ago. There was a scene I always liked where the hero gets drunk and makes love to the heroine, his wife. It wasn't rape but he can't remember it. He just wakes up and notices things that make him think he raped her. Lots of remorse from him and he is certain she hates him now. Quite angsty. I guess I've always loved angst.

See pseudonyms Louisa Bronte, Rebecca Danton & Janette Radcliffe. Some of the listed titles are more straight romance than romantic suspense.
