England, 1817. Miss Adeline Hays is out of options. Determined to escape marriage to a repugnant earl, she 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 suffer the tormenting loss of a loved one all over again.

Accidently Compromising a Duke
Excellent read! Engaging, well developed characters who are a joy to read about. The storyline was well thought out and kept moving forward. I will definitely look for more great reads by Stacy Reid.
Easy evening read
A Regency Lite historical romance
I rarely write such a negative review, but I couldn’t even finish chapter five.
The main characters were interesting, the plot seemed interesting as well.
Edmund Rochester? Really? If you’re going to use a name so well-known as Rochester, give him a name that doesn’t scream Jane Eyre, something beginning with a letter other than E.
The author uses too much modern language. Rips me out of the setting completely. She then compounds it with such poor turns of phrase made with a poor understanding of grammar and word choice, e.g., using ‘distraught’ as a noun, where ‘distress’ would be appropriate.
I can forgive and accept one or two such gaffes in an entire novel, but one or more per chapter results in the equivalent of a wallbanger, for e-books.
The characters and plot deserve better writing.
