THE ACCIDENTAL PRINCESS
by Michelle Willingham

Genre: Historical Romance, England, Victorian Period
Sensuality: HOT
Setting: Victorian London

RT Rating

Willingham's story unfolds like a childhood fairy tale, filling readers with the same joy and expectancy of Cinderella or Snow White. Her gift is her ability to craft wonderfully romantic, adventurous, sensual legends for adults.

Lady Hannah Chesterfield feels Lieutenant Michael Thorpe's eyes on her all evening, but she never expects him to rescue her from an unwanted suitor's advances. As a soldier, Michael realizes their social positions keep them apart, yet their mutual attraction cares nothing about society. To prevent scandal, Hannah is sent to relatives in Germany with Michael as her escort. Their journey takes them through the Principality of Lohenberg, where Michael's resemblance to the royal family, combined with the country's legend of a missing prince, thrusts Hannah and Michael into a dangerous plot where their passion is either a blessing or a curse. (HARLEQUIN, Mar., 300 pp., $5.99)

The Accidental Princess

Submitted by mlacroix on July 20, 2010 - 5:07pm.

Lady Hannah Chesterfield is the daughter of a Marquess and for some reason she's drawn to Lt. Michael Thorpe. When Hannah defies her family and refuses to marry Lord Belgrave, because he compromised her, Hannah is set to Germany to visit her relatives. Michael Thorpe knew he wasn't the man for Hannah, because of his lowly station, but he can't help falling in love with her. Suddenly everything Michael knew had become a lie, and he's thrust into the role of prince. Instead of going to Germany, Hannah and Michael try to discover if the simple soldier is really a prince.

This was an enjoyable book, I really hated Hannah's mother. Everything had to be perfect for her and Hannah wasn't. I enjoyed the plot and the characters. This book definitly deserved the rating it got.
