"What happens when a many-titled Duke decides to play hookey from his suffociaating dignity..."-Kirkus Reviews The Duke of Sale is out to prove himself The shy, young Duke of Sale has never known his parents. Instead, his Grace Adolphus Gillespie Vernon Ware, Gilly for short, has endured twenty-four years of rigorous mollycoddling from his uncle and valet. But his natural diffidence conceals a rebellious spirit. A mysterious beauty provides the perfect opportunity When Gilly hears of Belinda, the beautiful foundling who appears to be blackmailing his cousin, he absconds with glee. But he has no sooner entered this new and dangerous world than he is plunged into a frenzy of intrigue, kidnapping, adventure, and surprises at every turn. "Orphaned at birth, bullied by his well-meaning guardian, hemmed in by theaffectionate ministrations of a small army of family retainers, His Grace of Salehad reached the age of 24 without ever making a decision for himself In all hislife the titular master of Sale House, duke, marquis, earl, thrice baron, had neverso much as selected a cravat for his own wardrobe ... One morning, in amoment of unaccustomed resolution, His Grace made up his mind.'I shall try to discover,' he decided, 'whether I am a man, or only a duke.'"-New York Times Book Review
