One of readers', librarians' and booksellers' most frequently requested Heyers, The Foundling features Gilly, the seventh Duke of Sale.

A diffident young man of 24 years, easily pushed around by his overprotective uncle and the retinue of devoted family retainers who won't let him lift a finger for himself, the Duke sometimes wishes he could be a commoner. One day he decides to set out to discover whether he is "a man, or only a Duke."

Beginning with an incognito journey into the countryside to confront a blackmailer, he encounters a runaway school boy, a beautiful but airheaded orphan, one of literature's most appealing and well-spoken comic villains, and a series of alarming and even life threatening events from which he can extricate himself only with the help of his shy and lovely fiancé…

A sham betrothal isn't the only thing that gets Kitty and Freddy into trouble, but it's definitely the beginning...

Freddy is a most unusual hero. He's immensely rich, of course, and not bad-looking, especially with his ultra-starched shirt points and elegant quizzing glass. He gets engaged to his cousin Kitty only to help her get away from their irascible Great-uncle Matthew. The two head for London, where a series of hilarious mishaps threaten their charade. But Freddy discovers hitherto unplumbed depths of cleverness and practicality beneath his dandyish exterior, and Kitty discovers that the rake she was in love with can't hold a candle to her Freddy. He sets every mishap and adventure to rights in the end, surprising all (especially himself) and winning his heart's desire.

Finally, with the Battle of Waterloo raging just miles away, civilians fleeing and the wounded pouring back into the town, Lady Barbara discovers where her heart really lies, and like a true noblewoman, she rises to the occasion, and to the demands of love, life and war…
