Hi!
I read the plot for this book somewhere, and now I've forgotten where! I thought it was quite interesting:
The hero's father was falsely accused of a crime, convicted, as as he was an aristrocrat (heir to an earldom/viscouncy?) was sentenced to transportation to Australia. His son (the hero of this book) was with him.
Along they "collect" two brothers for the hero. I think these two children had been sentenced to transportation as well, and the father protects and adopts them.
Years later, the hero returns to England to claim the title (?) or to clean his father's name.
I know this is the first book in a series, I imagine the brothers will be the heroes in the next books.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

I am pretty sure this book is either by Edith Layton or Connie Brockway.
I'll check.

Right, I have had a good look and I am pretty sure this is the first book in a quartet by Edith Layton:

Return of the Earl
Alas, My Love
Gypsy Lover
How To Seduce a Bride.

Hope this/they fit.
