A Little Bit Sinful by Adrienne Basso
This is prob my fav book by this author so far. The previous book in this series was so-so, but this was totally fab. You could tell that the author was heavily inspired by "Sense and Sensibility" - she even names the heroine Eleanor. Eleanor is the older sister with all that comes with that, and her father is a class A jerk. The hero pursues her as a way of getting revenge on a wrong her father did him, but true love develops. The relationship that develops between the two is very charming and feels very real. Even though, at the end of the book, only 5 months pass between the last time they see each other and when they reunite, so much has happened - he inherits a greater title/she becomes pregnant - that I keep thinking of the hero as a much older man then he actually is toward the end.
