Humphrey Westcott, Earl of Riverdale, has died, leaving behind a fortune that will forever alter the lives of everyone in his family - including the daughter no one knew he had.
Anna Snow grew up in an orphanage in Bath knowing nothing of the family she came from. Now she discovers that the late Earl of Riverdale was her father and that she has inherited his fortune. She is also overjoyed to learn she has siblings. However, they want nothing to do with her or her attempts to share her new wealth. But the new earl's guardian is interested in Anna.
Avery Archer, Duke of Netherby, keeps others at a distance. Yet something prompts him to aid Anna in her transition from orphan to lady. As London society and her newfound relatives threaten to overwhelm Anna, Avery steps in to rescue her and finds himself vulnerable to feelings and desires he has hidden so well and for so long.

There comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.
This was a well writhen rags to riches story about a orphan becoming the true heir. The narrator was perfect for the story. This was well worth the credit. I would read the next story in the series.
What a clever reversal of the illegitimate concept among the aristocracy. When I started listening to this one, I assumed that it was the same old story about a child born on the "wrong side of the blanket" that was not entitled to inherit from its parents. I absolutely loved the reversal and thoroughly enjoyed the story.
