Dora’s father died, and because he was a clergyman, her family had to vacate their home to make room for the new vicar.
Forced to become a governess to keep her siblings at school, Dora spent the night in an inn, midway to her new position. At the inn, she met a young couple in trouble and offered her help, but in doing so, she got mistaken by the eloping bride-to-be.
Toby, the young man’s guardian, stressed and wishing to avoid scandal, dragged Dora to his carriage and drove her to what he thought was her home.
I loved how Dora was in complete control of her emotions, even after being forcibly removed from the inn. She was so clever and witty!
Toby was adorably awkward. He was terrible at communicating his intentions, and it was fun to watch the mess he put himself into. He was so sorry for what he did, yet his attempts to atone for his mistake led him into even more trouble.
I loved Dora’s siblings and their relationship with Toby.
His Accidental Courtship is a funny and romantic story with a good dose of unrequited (or believed so) love—my first book by this author, but certainly not the last.
Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

About the Author
“I write about brooding heroes, and the feisty heroines who bring them true love. Most of my stories take place during the Regency era – a time when a man could rise to the pinnacle of society through enterprise and daring, or plummet to the depths of poverty through one reckless turn of the card.”
