The only thing he has is a horse that he won in a card game and an illegitimate daughter. Said daughter has been left with a nursemaid her whole life and doesn't wish to be with her father. Her rambunctiousness gets them both ejected from the mail coach they were travelling in to collect the horse. (I did mention that Fitz is broke?). Fortunately for them they were tossed off the coach in front of the farm belonging to Miss Abigail Merriweather. Abby has problems of her own but can't turn them away.
This starts a story of two people who have little to no money but who are attracted to each other regardless. There are odd beneficiaries and good friends who come to their aid and strange goings on with the Earl's servants.
Other than that, I thought the conversations amusing, and liked the main couple as well as the supporting characters. Appreciated that the lead wasn't yet another ridiculously wealthy nob who falls in love with another suitably aristocratic miss 👏😊

The plot is a little different; a young woman, determined to keep custody of her half-siblings, at any cost, who finds herself up against the attitudes of the day, namely that a woman cannot be entrusted with the care of children without the guiding hand of a man; she therefore needs a wealthy and respectable husband. A newly titled gentleman, who has inherited a crumbling family estate and crippling debts; he has existed so far on his wits, his charm and his ability to 'count' cards, meaning that he can make enough at the gambling tables to keep himself, but not enough to make inroads into his inherited debts; he therefore needs an extremely wealthy and titled wife.
How this pans out is told charmingly, with a great deal of humour and a wonderful supporting cast of friends, benefactors and extended family; the children are a delight,and entirely relevant to the story. I especially loved Fitz' declaration of love - you'll need to read the book to find out how it happens - and I recommend that anyone who wants a lighter read [no burden of past abuse, no hiding secrets] tries this book. Even the villain has a very different role from those generally obtaining in this type of novel.
I have already downloaded the next book, and if it anything like as good as this book, I shall certainly be reading a lot more of Patricia Rice's stories.
Note: it is his ancestors who are wicked not our hero, so some may find the title of this book a misnomer.
Also let’s be clear - gambling debts above £10 were illegal and could not be enforced in law.
Hell-bent on turning his life around, Fitz takes responsibility for his illegitimate daughter and prepares to marry an heiress. Yet when his foul-mouthed brat gets them kicked off the stagecoach and thrown into Miss Abigail Merriweather's company, Fitz begins to wonder if money matters so very much after all.
But Abby has troubles of her own - namely four half-siblings removed from her care by an over scrupulous trustee - and she'll do anything to get them back. If only some titled gentleman could wield his influence to help her...
Opening the REBELLIOUS SONS series, Fitz is a charming rogue, flirtatious but not a rake, and used to living on his wits. His impulsiveness meets its match in practical Abby, who's more used to handling children and farmers than the fashionable ton. They fit together with surprising sweetness as they struggle to adapt to their new circumstances, trying to resist what they know they can't have.
With manipulative, but well-meaning guardians, loyal friends, rascally servants and cheeky children, this story rattles along. While dodging creditors and sinister notes, and leaning to cope with his difficult yet endearing child, it's no wonder Fitz falls for Abby, the one spot of calm in the tempest. Not that the course of true love ever runs smooth, but runaways, dark family dealings and misunderstandings both help and hinder things.
Full of fun, and populated with wonderful characters, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I can't wait for Blake Montague's turn.
