Book Review | Accidentally Compromising the Duke by Stacy Reid (@st_reid)


England, 1817.

Miss Adeline Hays is out of options. Determined to escape marriage to a repugnant earl, Adeline plans to deliberately allow herself to be caught in a compromising position at a house party with the much kinder man she’d hoped to marry. Instead, Adeline accidentally enters the wrong chamber and tumbles into the bed of the mad duke.

Edmond Rochester, the duke of Wolverton, is seeking a wife to care for his two daughters. A young lady of sensibilities, accomplishment, and most importantly, one who he is not attracted to—a complete opposite of the bewitching beauty who traps him into marriage. But despite the lust he feels for his new duchess, Edmond is resolved to never allow them intimacy, refusing to ever again suffer the tormenting loss of a loved one.

Adeline Hays’ plan was to escape an unwanted marriage from a despicable earl. She will allow herself to be compromised with a person whom she like rather than be shackled to a person she didn’t even like. They were in a house party, and with the right people – she can be married in no time. But because of an ‘accident’ she entered the wrong chamber and stumbles into the bed of a duke. Not just an ordinary duke, but the MAD DUKE himself, Edmond Rochester.

The Duke of Wolverton is seeking a wife, not for himself but for his daughters. He wanted someone he wasn’t attracted and no chance of falling in love with. But to his chagrin, a beautiful lady traps him into marriage. And despite the fact that he was trying his best into ignoring her, there was no use. He was already hooked not just with her beauty, but with her heart.

Will he once again take the risk in love?

Adeline is easy to fall in love with. She’s such a great woman, with positive disposition in life. She makes the most out of everything that life throws at her. Even when it’s frustrating and hard as the duke. And Edmond? He’s exasperating, and there are times I wanted to get inside the book and slap some senses into him. He did redeem himself in the end. It took some heartbreaking moments, but it was worth it.

You can’t put this one down. Once I started reading this book, it took me until I reached the final page before I had the heart to put my reader away. I enjoyed reading this book, it was fun, sweet, romantic, steamy with the right amount of drama.
