Top Customer Reviews
Gwen wants to know why Harry agreed to this ploy, but his response leaves her in further doubt as he tells her to talk to her bossy mother. When she learns that her parents blackmailed Harry into marriage since Milburn had not returned home, Gwen is despondent. However, as the scenario becomes even weirder with the return of Milburn and the brothers swapping identities, she realizes that Harry could not be made to do anything he would not want to. Could he love her as she loves him?
THE ACCIDENTAL DUCHESS is a strange but entertaining Regency romance that will remind readers of the Importance of Being Ernest or perhaps As You Like It, but obviously in a different setting. The story line can become confusing as to which brother is which, but fans will appreciate the errors as they will be as bewildered as the heroine is and enjoy every moment of it. Jessica Benson provides a fun historical though concentrate or you will root for the wrong brother to kiss Gwen.
Jessica Benson is a masterful storyteller who certainly has her characters at fever pitch trying their hands at seduction, changing their ways, and taking charge of their lives for better or worse in the game of marriage. You don't want to miss how this one turns out. I loved I! THE ACCIDENTAL DUCHESS is a novel you will want to savor and read more than once.

Jessica Benton has written the funniest & best regency romance I've ever read and I've read them all. I will buy, as the saying goes, 'anything with her name on it' henceforth.Published on June 23 2004
Started off well with the twin switch, then spent way too many pages explaining why. The heroine starts off biddable and ends a tyrant. Read morePublished on March 28 2004
