A penniless duke and a lively young lady may fall in love. But there’s no chance of a future, no matter how intoxicating the kisses. He won’t subject his wife to penury. Her parents agree. There’s no hope unless they can find a lost treasure, which may well be mythical.
Ashford draws in readers with complex characters, subtle romance, and all the sparkling wit and flirtatious banter of a Georgette Heyer novel. Publishers Weekly
