Waiting on Wednesday #27: The Accidental Countess by Valerie Bowman

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week an upcoming book I can’t wait to read is…

The Accidental Countess by Valerie Bowman
The Accidental Countess by Valerie Bowman
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication date: October 28, 2014
Series: Playful Brides #2
| Pre-Order on Amazon


For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. What Cass wouldn’t give to take her cousin’s place! When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations…even with her future husband, Cass thinks this is her chance. 


After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage—especially when the real object of his affection turns out to be a beguiling beauty he meets at a party. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate…and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancée. When the truth about Cass comes out—and Julian discovers that their courtship is anything but accidental—will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?

I enjoy Valerie Bowman's books and am close to finishing her newly released The Unexpected Duchess, the first book of her playful brides series based on a reverse Cyrano story! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog to see what book I'm waiting for this week! So...what book are you waiting for?


  1. Great pick Mary. I believe I haven't read Valerie Bowman yet. It will be interesting to read about all those disguises and pretenses so to speak that our characters must do in this book.

    My WoW pick :)

  2. Nice pick. Been trying to catch up on some historical reads so this one is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  3. This looks like a good one to me, too! I am also looking forward to Home to Stay by Terri Osburn, which is on its way to me from Amazon!
