Colleen doesn’t want a man. She cokntess 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.

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.
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: 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.
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.
The Accidental Countess by Melissa Schroeder
She has no plans to marry but when found alone with him it is either marry schroede have her reputation ruined. Things would have been fine but right after they marry he finds out his cousin has passed away and he schtoeder 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 smoking hot read Ms. Accixental 17, Nesa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 12, Jayne added it. May 07, cookiemonger rated it it was ok. Sometimes I really hate how bad two stars looks. I try to consistently follow the Goodreads definition of two stars as It Was Okay.
But it’s kind of only okay. The writing has some shining moments, but there are some grating repetitions matchmaking mamas, breeding and tired-ish tropes that are played absolutely straight.
I accivental liked the romance, though Sebastian got a little too controlling for me. At one point, he literally threatens her into their marriage. And he’s really s Sometimes I really hate how bad two stars looks. And he’s really self-satisfied about it. Like he’s winning or something. Colleen is still pretty cool, though. She doesn’t cow to him. Accidentql she does suffer from Beautiful All Along. Some interesting concepts come up, but I don’t think they really went far enough.
I liked countesw side characters. Except for Anna, I’m sorry I can’t help it. Overly demonstrative and effing clapping with joy. No thank you I quite liked the twist at the end, although the monologue had me trying not to wince. The book is a good time. I wouldn’t call it forgettable, remarkable, awesome or terrible. And that’s not bad. Melissa Schroeder is one of my favorite authors, thus the 4-star rating, but I’d stick to her contemporary romance novels.
Not that this isn’t any good. It is, I liked the characters and how they fell in love with each other. I guess what I was looking for was accidengal setting.
