the back cover....

Hawklyn, the Earl of Westmorland grew up in a world of bejeweled buckled shoes and velvet frock coats. He has the charm, dashing good looks and confidence to conquer any obstacle that comes his way.  As a source of amusement he turns to games of chance, over time the stakes grow higher.  His friend, Roderick engages him in a challenge. Hawklyn must cast aside his riches and title to experience a life as his own man!

But how will this over-educated and over-indulged Earl find his way in the world? When Hawklyn become Cleatus Alphonse, it opens a whole new way of life.  Taking a position as a lowly bookstore clerk, he spies a beautiful, curvaceous woman in the romance section. His heart races as he longs to touch her, to possess this beauty with luxurious, raven tresses and haunted emerald eyes. With no roses, fancy operas or sport cars to woo her – how shall Cleatus Alphonse win her heart?

ROFLMAO.  I'd buy it if you wrote it.  Sounds like it would be very funny.  One suggestion, though.  I'd change sport cars to Phaetons.
