|When Colleen MacGregor pulled Sebastian Ware out of a
ditch in a snowstorm she thought she had saved a drunk from
certain death. However, once she got him out of the cold and
into her home she discovered that he had been struck on his
head and left to die in the snow. With a storm raging outside
Colleen has no choice but to allow Sebastian to stay at her
home and, since he is injured, she set him up in her bedroom.
She never expected to find herself compromised and forced to
marry Sebastian when the local vicar stops by to check on her.
Colleen and Sebastian are already wed when they get the
startling news that Sebastian's cousin has died leaving him
the new Earl of Penwyth. Suddenly Colleen is a Countess and on
her way to London with a new husband she barely knows but
finds herself coming to have feelings for. But Sebastian had
sworn never to marry again after the nightmare his first
marriage was and most certainly never to allow a woman into
his heart again. Sebastian and Colleen quickly find themselves
falling in love but when Sebastian's mysterious enemy sets
their sights on Colleen, can Sebastian figure out who is
behind these mysterious attacks before it's too late?
I have read all of Melissa Schroeder's past releases and
enjoyed them but The Accidental Countess remains
my favorite. As soon as I heard that Samhain was releasing it,
I knew I had to read it again! The emotional connection
between Sebastian and Colleen is so richly woven that the
readers find themselves enthralled waiting for them to have
the happy ending they so deserve. Melissa Schroeder is always
on my “must be read list” and The Accidental Countess
is a perfect example why!
