The Accidental Countess (Once Upon An Accident #1) by Melissa Schroeder

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.

My review:
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.
