Alexander Ridgeley, the Duke of Ashbourne, has no plans to marry anytime soon. But when a redheaded American saves his nephew's life, he may have to rethink his plans. Emma Dunstan is everything Alex never thought a woman could be--smart, funny and brave. She's also a servant, completely unsuitable for a duke. Little does he know, but Emma is actually an American heiress visiting her cousins in London.

This is Julia Quinn's debut novel. The first half of the book was a little slow for me and tended to drag in places. The second half picks up the pace for an enjoyable story. My rating: 4.0 stars.
