Reader Review: I am really enjoying Melissa Schroeder books her writing is outside the square and not predictable her characters are beliveable. My heart went out to both main characters as they worked the way to the ending
Being a spinster was much easier than becoming the accidental countess and it definitely didn't prepare her for falling in love.
Book One in the Once Upon an Accident series.
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.
This book was previously published, but has been substantially revised and re-edited for Samhain Publishing.
Warning this title contains the following: somewhat explicit love scenes, drunken earls, irritating relatives and bathing activities that leave the floor wet and the hero and heroine exhausted.

The Accidental Countess
Chapter One"Jameson, I can undressh myshelf," Sebastian slurred loud enough for everyone on Curzon Street to hear.
Colleen opened her eyes, her husband's voice bringing her out of a sound sleep. She sat up, testing her body. No more dizziness and just a few aches. She grabbed her spectacles off her nightstand and donned them and her wrapper. She rose out of bed and crept to the door she assumed connected her chamber to her husband's room.
"I'll tell you when I want some help from you, Jameson. This ish not one of those times."
Jameson's "Yes, my lord" was barely audible.
The door opened then closed, telling Colleen that her husband must be alone. She waited, wondering if she should interrupt him to make sure he could make it to bed.
"Bloody hell!" he yelled, which was followed by the sound of a large body falling to the floor. Colleen threw the door open and rushed into the room to find her husband in much the same condition as she had found him that very first time. Laid out flat on the floor. Only this time he was fully awake, a sloppy drunken grin on his face.
Impatience and resentment sped through her. Not twenty-four hours in London, and the idiot was drunk as a sailor.
"Ahhh, wife. I see that you have rushed to my rescue again. I can't seem to get the other sleeve off."
It was then that she realized Sebastian was bare-chested, one arm still tangled in the sleeve. She hadn't seen him like this since she had nursed him back to health, and he had been incoherent at the time. But as he struggled with his sleeve, she couldn't take her eyes off the great expanse of golden skin before...

I loved the beginning of this book...It was very promising: the heroine has wit and a strong character, but in the development of the story, it seems to dissolve.The second part of the book is quite predictable, but it is anyway a pleasant reading for a rainy day
