If Adeline Hays doesn't find a groom soon, her father is set to marry her off to an odious and elderly earl. Adeline has set her sights on a certain man, but in her quest to outsmart her father, she ends up in the wrong bed and is forced to marry a man who she had previously thought was a footman but ends up being a duke.
Edmond Rochester, the Duke of Wolverton finds Adeline an intriguing young woman, but he never expected to have to do the honorable thing and save her from certain ruin. Evenwithher protestations, Adeline has no idea what she has gotten herself into and the only one with the level head seems to be the duke. He needs a wife to help him care for his two children and having Adeline literally fall into his life proves a solution in some ways but a hindrance in others.
The Duke of Wolverton wants to have a marriage without intimacy, but Adeline wants nothing else but that and the love to go along with it, hence the discord in the Rochester home. Most of the time when one is running from something, the opposite seems to happen and Edmond's plight to remain aloof is proving to be in vain as he meets his match in Adeline.
ACCIDENTALLY COMPROMISING THE DUKE by Stacy Reid is a great story with an abundance of mischief and mayhem that leads to the divine. This expertly told tale is a luminous first look into the WEDDED BY SCANDAL Series and I look forward to the next one!
