Overview

Schroeder has crafted a touching and tender story with characters you can't help but love. This book has everything... Kristina Cook

Being a spinster was much easier than becoming the accidental countess and it definitely didn’t prepare her for falling in love.

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 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…or on falling in love. But before he can declare his feelings, he must protect her from an enemy who wants them both dead. Racing against the clock, Sebastian strives to save them both so he can turn their accidental love into a love for eternity.

Meet the Author

rom an early age, USA Today Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the bestseller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She made the USA Today Bestseller list for the first time with her anthology The Santinis.

Since she was a military brat, she vowed never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. Her husband just retired from the AF after 20 years, and together they have their own military brats, two girls, and two adopted dog daughters, and is happy she picks where they live now.

    The Accidental Countess

    I love Melissa Schroeder! I'm not sure she could write a bad book if she tried.

    Once I started this book I could not put it down. I found myself transported 1808 to bear witness to Colleen and Sebastian's story.

    It's funny, it's romantic, it's suspenseful, and it's a test of wills. The bantering between Colleen and Sebastian is such a fun roller coaster ride that when I finished I wanted to turn back to the first page and start this story over.

    Colleen has quite the sharp tongue. I love her attitude! I think she truly did just want to be left alone but her conscious wouldn't allow her to leave an unconscious man to die in the snow...... could she?

    The Accidental Countess is a fun historical romance.  Bluestocki

    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 smoking hot read Ms. Schroeder’s contemporary novels.  This book has some intimacy but nothing like Melissa Schroeder’s other books.
