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!
