An early work of Jane Austen which was never officially published, describes the schemes of the title character Lady Susan.
Presented as a set of 42 Letters the describes Lady Susan as a selfish, unscrupulous and scheming woman, highly attractive to men, who is perfectly unashamed of her relationship with a married man.
In contrast to the female leads in Jane Austen's other works, Lady Susan is considerably older than the men she actively pursues. Groundbreaking as a romantic novel for 1794 when it was written.
