I'm looking for a romance novel I read in the mid-nineties

I am looking for a romance novel from around 1993. I know that romance novels are a dime a dozen but I am hoping that, somewhere in the hive mind, there is someone who loves trashy books with a better memory than me. Here are the major plot points:

A woman comes back to her family country home after a failed engagement in, I think, 1860's England. While there, she has heated conversations with the gardener who is secretly a union activist in the local coal mines that the woman's family owns. So, there are scenes about coal miner riots. There are also scenes about how she is seduced by a pooka, the gardener sneaking into her room at night (give me a break, it's trashy romance). I also remember her ordering a lot of new dresses. Ugh, I have been looking for this book for a very long time and nothing. I am not expecting any returns but I wanted one last try before I give up on this forever.
