I read this book as a teenager, when I read all of Georgette Heyer's novels. It is still just as enjoyable 20 years later. The Duke of Sale is wishing his guardian and all of his servants would stop treating him like a child. At the age of 24, he is ready to assume management of his estates and daily activities, but he doesn't know how to break their habit of constantly watching over him, telling him what he should do, and how he should do it. He manages a visit to London to see his cousin, Gideon, and admits that he wishes he could be plain and simple Mr. Dash of Nowhere. He feels sure that Mr. Dash would have a better life, free of constant well wishers and advisers. The Duke is presented with an opportunity to slip his leash, and goes for it. He encounters several adventures, makes new friends, and learns more about his own capabilities. While tackling problems on his own, and making a few mistakes, he becomes the man he should be.
