"Gilly slays the "dragon"."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Gilly, the Duke of Sale, was a sickly baby, but as an undersized but healthy adult, he is still struggling to convince his relatives and servants that he is perfectly capable of managing his own life. When an unexpected adventure falls into his lap, he decides to disappear for a few days without letting his devoted staff know where he is. His subsequent exploits demonstrate that he is capable of living without the supervision and suffocating attentions of his uncle and servants, much to their surprise. Gilly finds romance, slays a metaphorical dragon, and finds himself in the process.

Description

The shy, young Duke of Sale has never known his parents, Instead, his Grace Adolphus Gillespie Vernon Ware (Gilly for short) has endured twenty-four years of rigorous mollycoddling form his uncle and valet. But his natural diffidence conceals a rebellious spirit. So when Gilly hears of Belinda, the beautiful foundling who appears to be blackmailing his cousin, he absconds with glee. Only he has no sooner entered his new and dangerous world than he is plunged into a frenzy of intrigue, kidnap and adventure.
