Once Upon an Accident, Book 3

Lady Anna was once considered the catch of the season. Now, three years after she fell for a man who tried to murder her cousin, she eases her guilt with charity work at an orphanage. Until her mother insists she do her duty.

Attending her cousin’s ball is irritating enough. It’s her one dance with Daniel, the unscrupulous Earl of Bridgerton, that rubs her nerves raw. And oddly leaves her senses on the edge of arousal.

The ton sees Daniel as a scoundrel. In truth, like centuries of Bridgertons before him, he leads a vast network of spies, protecting England from her worst enemies. His resolve never to marry means the one woman he’s always wanted—Lady Anna—is off limits. Especially now that his father’s murderer is coming after him as well.

At first, Anna wonders if Daniel was put on this earth just to annoy her. It’s only when she finds him injured that his mask begins to fall away—and so do the barriers between them. But their flaring passion puts her right where Daniel didn’t want her. Next on a killer’s list.

Product Warnings
This book contains spies, musicales, men who think they know everything, women who know they do not, naughty liaisons, matchmaking mamas, and a seduction that will curl your toes.

Lady Anna was really hurt by the events surrounding Lady Cecily's abduction. She feels that she has a lot to be guilty over. Her flirtation opened the door for Dewhurst to hurt one of her best friends. To appease her guilt, she has poured her all into an orphanage in the wrong side of town. Lord Daniel is a spy, the latest in a family of spies. He is determined not to marry and expose another woman to the pain his mother felt when his father was killed in the line of duty. Anna is in danger and only Daniel can protect her. Being so close to her allows their passion to spin out of control. This is a finely tuned finale to the trilogy. When I finished Lessons in Seduction, I couldn't wait for Anna and Daniel's HEA and this story totally delivered. The mystery was not obvious, the tension was exquisite and the dialogue was snappy and fun! This will be going into my reread pile for sure!
