As the daughter of the richest man in England, Allegra Morgan attracts a number of fortune hunters willing to overlook her flawed pedigree to gain her enormous wealth. Her most ardent suitor is the arrogant but impoverished Quinton Hunter, duke of Sedgwick, who has little to offer a prospective wife except his grand title. Allegra decides that if she must marry, she might as well be a duchess. So she agrees to the match with one condition: her husband must never ask for her love. She has seen the misery love can cause and has vowed to give her heart to no man--especially a dangerously alluring duke.

interesting fairy tale set in the high society of Georgian England during the season of the Husband Hunt. It's written with a light touch and a good sense of humor. The only unnecessary and really jarring note in the story is the Pimpernel-like escapade in France. A good quick read.
