From best-selling author Ayr Bray comes The Illegitimate Heir, the romantic tale of an honorable soldier, a rich beauty, and a vengeful rake....
The younger son of an earl often cannot afford to marry for love, so it is fortunate that Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam has fallen in love with Helen Malham, who has both beauty and wealth. Her father, however, will not allow her to marry a man without a title.
When the prince regent names Richard the Duke of Blachedone, it is both a blessing and a curse. His newly acquired title means he may marry Helen - assuming she will have him once the truth comes out. He was awarded the dukedom not for his service to the Crown, but because he is the former duke's illegitimate son, and soon all of London will know.
Mr. Calvin Aldrich is a rake and a blackguard who is set to be one of the richest dukes in England...until his uncle is stripped of his titles and possessions while on his deathbed. Bereft of his inheritance, Calvin will stop at nothing to get revenge on his uncle's illegitimate heir. He will strike at Richard any way he can, even if it means ruining an innocent woman.

Well worth the listen and or read
Yes. Once the story established itself, it was hard to stop listening to .
Not to make a spoiler , but it was when Richard understood and forgive his mother.
Richard, without a doubt
When Richard comforted his new sister. The compassion he showed was so gentle so loving.
At first I was " put off" by the woman's voices by mr sands. They tended to be the same. The men's voices were excellent and with different nuances for the male characters.
Once I was caught up in the story, nothing mattered but the story.
I highly recommend this !!
