thank you for reading this even if you dont know anything about the book. (dark hair, etc) "Black" may even be in the title of the book-The h has 2 sisters**the youngest of whom is raped (by the H's men (?))-I do know one of his men takes her and cares for her/nurses her back to health.I do not remember title or author ( I had thought it was Kathleen E Woodiwiss) But I cannot find it if it was. heroine is in Hero's mansion/ home, he is believed to be deceased.But he is just injured, His portrait hangs in the bedroom and he comes to the room at night pretending to be a ghost and appears to walk out of the portrait.during the book he meets and falls in love with a woman who looks exactly like his dead wife.i believe that it was written about the georgian era of the Ton.
She ends up married to an invalid and is involved with the invalid's brother.
