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.

"Other side of the blanket"
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.
"Mary Balogh at her best"
This is a great new series that I know I will thoroughly enjoy. Great first book in the tale of the Westcotts.
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.
"excellent as always. it ended too soon."
having found family and then a love, Anna is capable of carrying a story a little further.
Quite refreshing and enjoyable. Mary Balogh never disappoints. Same with Roslyn Landor. Great start to this series. Glad Camille's story is next.
"Not one of Balough 's best."
personable principals but too many storylines spun up with no resolution and a tepid romance with little real conflict except in those storylines that are left unresolved.
"Loved This Story"
As always I hate to leave the world Mary Balogh and Rosalyn Landor create. A beautiful world I look forward to losing myself in over and over again!
"Just OK, not like her earlier books"
This book showed the authors exemplary ability to write an engaging story, but lacked the level of steam and character development seen in her earlier work.
Narrator EXCELLENT. I forgot I was listening to a female narrator when she did male voices!
This read moved to slow I couldn't finish
I usually love her books but this one dragged to much
"Hard to listen to"
Painfully slow and hard to follow. Could not grasp the characters while the narrator was reading.
