The Duke’s Accidental Wife

Miss Katherine Ross is a wealthy, eccentric socialite who knows precisely what she wants: No husband. No children. No candlelit tête-à-tête with the insufferably emotionless Duke of Ravenwood. She's convinced his heart is ice — until she touches that chiseled chest for herself. One lapse in judgment is all it takes to turn both their lives topsy-turvy...
The Duke of Ravenwood isn't cold and haughty, but a secret romantic who has always dreamt of marrying for love. Instead, he gets Miss Katherine Ross — a headstrong hoyden intent on unraveling his carefully ordered world. He doesn't know whether to kiss her or throttle her. Can they survive each other's company long enough to turn a compromise into love?

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ (4 cups of vibrant cafe)
The Duke's Accidental Wife is the seventh book in Erica Ridley's popular Duke of War series. This was such a funny and sweet, poignant and heartbreakingly romantic story about two polar opposite personalities who, caught in a compromising position, get married. How opposite? Well, one loves entertaining and meeting new people, the other abhors crowds and gatherings and will only do so in the name of duty (or in the name of Love). She is eccentric, he is a Duke who takes his role seriously and does things by the book and rule of law. She is against getting married while he is all for it but only in the name of love (we're getting an idea who's the romantic here). He is parliament, she is for the arts. He wants a family while she is petrified of giving birth and will only bear children as a duty in the far, far off future. She thinks poetry isn't really a thing for patrons of the art while he can only vent his walled off emotions in poetic verse where no one can read them. He kissed her, she kissed back and there in lies the story of how Katherine and Lawrence melded their two opposing personalities into one fantastic romance. Its a must read for fans of the series and lighthearted opposite attracts story for romance readers.
