GoodReads Summary:  
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.

First response: Haven't read this author in awhile, but she still writes a really good historical romance with all the necessary twists and turns. Full review on the blog soon.

And here it is! What a wonderful romance this is, too! When Mary Balogh decides to start a new series, she does it with such style! This one has everyone sighing, including the other characters! Oh, well, maybe some of them are actually groaning because they can't believe the Duke would marry this nobody. But sighs or groans, no one is immune to the pair. Ms. Balogh paints the expressions and feelings of each one for you to see and understand so well that you feel you are there in the salon with them looking around at each face as they absorb the news. But I won't say what news. Read the book and find out for yourself! This is fun even though there is sad news for so many of the characters. Mary Balogh is a favorite romance author of mine and I highly recommend any book of hers!

And then try Book #2 in the series! Find out how some of the family copes with losing a fortune and trying to make a life on their own.
