England, 1805

Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope is ruined and everyone knows it. Back in Town for the first season since her downfall, Willa plans to remain firmly on the shelf, assuming only fortune hunters will want her now. Instead she focuses on her unique tea blends, secretly supporting a coffee house which employs poor women and children. If her clandestine involvement in trade is discovered, she'll be ruined. Again.

No one is more shocked by Willa's lack of quality suitors than the newly minted Duke of Hartwell. Having just returned from India, the dark duke is instantly attracted to the mysterious wallflower. His pursuit is hampered by the ruthless Earl of Bellingham, who once jilted Willa and is now determined to reclaim her.

Caught between the clash of two powerful men, a furious Willa refuses to concede her independence to save her reputation. But will she compromise her heart?


My Rating: 4.5 Roses

A lovely historical romance, Compromising Willa was another wonderful book in the fantastic Accidental Peers series. I absolutely loved this book!

Willa was a great heroine. She was strong and wanted nothing more than to be independent. Even with her psycho ex-fiance's manipulations, she refused to back down. I thought she was a wonderful character.

Hart was also wonderful. He was a sweetheart. He couldn't care less what happened in Willa's past. He just wanted her. And, he always wanted what was best for her, even if it was away from him. He was perfect and I adored him.

The romance was lovely. Willa and Hart were sweet together, especially with the way Hart was entirely devoted to Willa's happiness. The chemistry between them was steamy and there were certainly some hot moments. My one complaint about the romance, though, was that they really needed to learn how to communicate correctly. There were a lot of miscommunications that led to some issues, which could have been resolved had they been straight with each other in the first place. But, it was a fairly minor problem, and I still thought these two were a perfect couple.

Augustus, the Earl, was Willa's ex-fiance. He was a...hmmm...interesting character. And by that I mean I hated his guts, but in a good way. He was perfectly hateful, especially when we find out the extent of his past, and he added an interesting dimension to the book.

The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely. The Accidental Peers series is absolutely wonderful and I can't wait to read more from it.

Compromising Willa was a wonderful historical romance. I absolutely loved this book! Lovers of romance, you have to read this book.
