Accidentally Compromising the Duke

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.

  1. With a little help from her best friend Evie Miss Adeline Hayes is a woman trapped between a rock and a quite literal “hard place”. The rock being her social climbing parents schemes to see her married off to the wealthiest of takers. The “hard place”? Just who the wealthiest of takers happens to be in this case. One repugnant reprobate and conceited ass of the lowest order, the Earl of Vale. 

  2. Edmond I really liked Adel she was such a sweet woman, “you are my husband. Everything you do is of interest to me,” she said. “And I would like to walk with you when you visit the local villages sometimes.” I found this book to be really enjoyable Edmond wasn’t as ‘mad’ as people thought I really loved his character.
