Being a spinster was much easier than becoming the accidental countess and it definitely didn't prepare her for falling in love. Book One in the Once Upon an Accident series. Colleen MacGregor doesn't like rich men, especially rich titled men.
Still, her guilt won't allow her to leave Sebastian passed out in the snow. Before he can leave, they are caught in a compromising Being a spinster was much easier than becoming the accidental countess and it definitely didn't prepare her for falling in love. Before he can leave, they are caught in a compromising situation. Under an agreement he will leave and never bother her again, Colleen marries a man she barely knows to save her reputation.
Before she can really stop anything, she is whisked to London, where she is transformed into an Original and captures the attention of the ton-not to mention her husband. Sebastian Ware thinks he'll never see the sharp-tongued spinster again. He never planned on becoming the next Earl of Penwyth.

She especially doesn't want a titled man. She really, really doesn't want a rich duke!! But just her luck that the man she saved from death in the snow and she thought was a wastrel drunk turns out to be a rich, titled man. If only they hadn't been caught in that compromising position.

Oh well, he's promised to marry her to save her reputation, and then return to London so she can conveniently 'kill him off' since he's been going by his name and not his title in her village. It could be worse. Well hell. He married her to save her reputation and let her keep her house.
It's not like it's his fault his two relatives just died and made him duke. He can't very well marry someone else as he's already married and he refuses to allow the title to go to his wastrel of a cousin. She'll just have to deal with being married to a rich, titled Duke. Surely that's what every woman wants? This comedy of errors was a delight from beginning to end. He can't figure out why he is attracted to such an unfashionable, obstinate, red-headed witch.
And she just wants to prevent having her heart broken. Watching these two work their way to each other is an entertaining read. Jun 19, Dinjolina rated it liked it Shelves: lite-romace , romantic-suspense , nothing-special , crime-romance , stupid-plot-development , thers-a-bun-in-the-oven.
First of all-this is NOT erotic fiction. There are some 'cock'-s thrown in there but the sex is pretty much minimal and that makes this just regular HR. And it got only t stars because this 'just HR' book was 'just' as a whole. In other words, it had potential, it could have been really fun but in the end it JUST felt flat. Jul 12, Coco. Mar 12, Lyndi W. At least with a historical romance, there is a legitimate excuse for the heroine to think herself so lowly.
But it's still damn annoying. Where is the character that's like "You'd be so fuckin' lucky to get with me, dude. She has to be awesome and know she's awesome. This Colleen character was awesome, but she didn't know she was awesome.
Which would normally be just fine and dandy, except we spend a At least with a historical romance, there is a legitimate excuse for the heroine to think herself so lowly. Which would normally be just fine and dandy, except we spend a lot of page time on Colleen disparaging herself.
So really she's awesome, but thinks she's the opposite of awesome. And that's not awesome. The Accidental Countess is a fun historical romance. Bluestocking spinster saves entitled rake. She has no plans to marry but when found alone with him it is either marry or have her reputation ruined. Things would have been fine but right after they marry he finds out his cousin has passed away and he is now an Earl. Ooops, no annulment now. As with any good historical there is romance, mystery, dancing and of course some snappy dialogue.
I truly enjoyed this book. If you are looking for smokin The Accidental Countess is a fun historical romance. If you are looking for smoking hot read Ms.
Nice story, needs proofreading Modern phrasing, ambiguity about the era in which the story takes place, contrived misunderstandings and jumps to incorrect conclusions, and typos sprinkled through the content downgrade what would have been a 4-star review.
Overall, the writing engages and the story moves as an even pace. The villain quickly becomes obvious, but resolution of the villainy comes as a refreshing and unexpected surprise.
Very good book! Ok, this is the first book I've read by this author and i am pleased to say i was delighted! The story line was very well thought out and the characters were great. There were a few things it took me a bit to figure out but otherwise i truly liked this book. You not only have a romance in this book,but you have intrigue and a mystery to solve.
Recommend for anyone that likes historical romances!! Could have been a good story Colleen saves Sebastian when he is assaulted and left for dead.
