  • a usurer:

    Across the lower hall, the door into the library stood ajar. Lord Fleetwood's voice, speaking in rallying tones, assailed the ladies' ears. "I swear you are incorrigible!" said his lordship. "The loveliest of creatures drops into your lap, like a veritable honey-fall, and you behave as though a gull-groper had forced his way into your house!"

    "Arabella" by Georgette Heyer.
