An exciting prequel to THE DUKE HEIST.
Meet the Wild Wynchesters: This fun-loving, caper-committing family of tight-knit siblings can’t help but find love and adventure!
Years ago, Chloe Wynchester and five other uniquely talented orphans were adopted by a wealthy baron with a secret mission: The motley Wynchester family fights for justice from the margins of high society. And the handsome, clever duke Chloe has long admired proves to be her worst enemy…
An unscrupulous boarding school is exploiting orphans in a secret workhouse. Baron Vanderbean plots a daring rescue. When illness befalls him, Chloe must take the reins. But how can a lifelong wallflower lead the charge to save the children?
”I want to be a Wynchester!”

Not a romance
I generally enjoy every Erica Ridley book I’ve read (which is a lot of them). But while I didn’t not enjoy this own, I was disappointed it wasn’t a romance. It’s a well developed novella that gives a lot of background for chloe who is apparently the heroine in book 1 of this series which is romance.
I like this author but this short piece has too many character, too many crimes, and too much mental agonizing. I found myself skipping stuff to get finished.
