A nice satisfying historical. The plot was familiar. Nobleman falls off horse in front of impoverished gentlewoman's cottage and she nurses him back to health. It was easy to figure out all of the mysteries and there were not unexpected plot twists. This was a fairly light hearted story. There was no angst.

There were several areas however, where the author did a better than average job and lifted this book above its competition. The writing was light and fluid. For the most part the actions of t
This is my favorite Anne Gracie book to date. What's unusual for me is that Nash is (1) a diplomat and (2) not titled. He's the brother of an earl, but his fortune is his own. And this isn't a story that I'd normally grab. That said, I loved the gradual relationship between Nash and Maddy; her fierce love for her siblings, the care she shows for a stranger, and her strength when faced with some difficult doings all made her one of my favorite heroines. Nash respects that, and he keeps swearing i ...more
3.5 stars for The Accidental Wedding -- fast paced, smexy, and a little suspenseful. Quite enjoyable. Loved the impoverished but valiant, self-sufficient, strong-willed and proud heroine, Maddy. Loved her relationship with her deceased French grandmere, and her relationship with her bees, and with her five younger siblings (loved the children). I enjoyed the ghostly attacks from the Bloody Abbott. Also, it was great to see characters from prior books, especially Harry and Nell from His Captive ...more

Nash Renfrew returned to England to take possession of his inheritance and to find a wife. So he asked his aunt to find him “the right sort of wife” for “an excellent marriage”; well-born, well-connected, well-trained in managing large social occasions, someone who can help him in his diplomatic career. The last thing he wants is a love match – he saw what ‘the passion of a lifetime’ did to his parents’ marriage, so he want nothing to do with love, thank you very much.

Maddy meets none of his req
Nash falls off a horse with his head. Maddy picks him up and heals him in the cradle of her bosoms (quite literally). When he finally regains his memory, he's eager to stay in the cradle of her bosoms. Except then boners get in the way, and then a proposal, and then like feelings, ugh.

1. So Nash is allegedly a diplomat?? But no one's going to miss him for a month?? And if he's a diplomat, WHY THE HELL DID I NOT GET A PARLEZ-VOUS FRANCAIS SCENE WITH HIM AND THE HALF-FRENCH MADDY? It would have b

Lovely, sexy, wonderful story. I had forgotten just how much I enjoy Anne Gracie's writing. She is easily Loretta Chase's equal in creating heroes and heroines who live and breathe on the page. I've been waiting for Nash Renfrew's story since the beginning of this series, since he's just my favorite type of hero. Suave, sophisticated, charming. And what must Anne Gracie do, but take him completely out of his element and plop him down with amnesia in a country cottage with a lonely, gently-bred, ...more

My review:

This was a very cute and sweet romance. I liked this story because the focus was on the romance and not so much silly pre-made drama. There were no other women coming along for the hero or anything in this book. The hero wasn't innocent by any mea

I've come to the understanding that I'm a total sucker for stories where the rake/rogue falls in love with the heroine AND her adorable children (or in this case, young siblings). Georgette Heyer's Frederica is a classic example.

In The Accidental Wedding, Anne Gracie takes a familiar scenario -- handsome injured stranger with amnesia nursed by poor but proud and of course beautiful young woman in a cottage leading to a marriage of convenience -- and creates a whole new story. All of the charact
At the beginning I thought the story a bit predictable s I wasn't that much excited about it, but I liked being slapped in the face with a great book. XD

In this book I loved Maddy more than Nash, here Nash messed plenty of opportunities with the wrong words. And Maddy had really proved herself as someone who wont take charity from anyone if it was solely for her, all her decision were based on the kids.

The scenes I loved in this book were the one's Nash had with the children, specially Lucy, bec

What a great book! I really love the heroine. Strong and independent, she has a lot of life force unlike most heroine which is spoiled and passive.

Maddie, is a daughter of a fallen noble. She had to work hard for her entire life to fulfill her family daily needs. At 22, she had to support five siblings. One day, she witnessed a man's accident and tried hard to save his life. When he woke up, he found himself in amnesia, but from his clothes and belongings, they both knew that he was a noble or f

What girl with a flair for style and romance doesn't love gazing at wedding dresses, whether in magazines or store windows? So naturally with a beautiful, white dress on the cover, my curiosity to read The Accidental Wedding by Anne Gracie was piqued.

Madeline “Maddy” Woodford lives a simple life in a one bedroom cottage with her five young half-siblings. They may struggle to make ends meet, tending honey bees and maintaining a small gar
2011 TBR Challenge- This book has been on my TBR list since November 2010.

The Accidental Wedding is a decently written historical romance with likable characters. No big misunderstandings or other dreaded plot devices to mar what is essentially a fairy tale-- injured rich man gets nursed back to health by impoverished beautiful woman and falls in love.

While the book is nice way to pas a few hours, the plot isn't very deep or complex. The author never lets the suspense build too far and the myst
C'est amusant de voir Nash lutter contre ses sentiments, mais son comportement qui ne colle pas toujours avec ce qu'on peut attendre d'un diplomate. Maddy est à la fois terre à terre et rêveuse, et par moments un peu trop contemporaine (par exemple la scène où elle remet en place la tante Maud, même si elle est jouissive, ne colle pas trop avec l'éducation qu'elle a reçu). Les frères et sœurs sont mignons et apportent une touche de légèreté sans prendre trop de place. Par contre une fois que Nas ...more

First of all, I thought the title had little to do with the plot. Secondly, I liked the plot, but I got a little tired of the hero's ignorance that he was in love. Thirdly, personally I get sick of sex in novels when it has little to do with the plot or theme, so I got bogged down. I liked the heroine and her siblings, but I probably wouldn't read it again.
3.5/5 ... Nash was amusing, the heroine endearing and competent. Story proceeds at a fast pace and holds your attention. Although I found the constant heightened state of arousal of both the main characters for much of the novel to be a bit draining after a while. Mind you it was quite well done, but I would have enjoyed a few pages here and there where neither of them was fantasizing about getting into the other's pants. Just having a bit of normal non-sexually charged storytelling thrown in th ...more

O livro do Nash.
Tudo começa quando Nash está indo visitar uma propriedade que recebeu de herança. No meio do caminho, ele sofre um acidente e quem o encontra é a Maddy.
Ela o leva para casa e cuida dos seus ferimentos.
Ele dorme por dois dias e acorda não se lembrando de nada.
Até ai, adorei o livro.
Acontece que o Nash, que estava BEMMM interessado na Maddy, que aliás é uma fofa, quando se lembra de quem é, passa a supor que nunca poderia se envolver com a pobre (literalmente POBRE) moça.

Written by Rita Jett for Romance Novel News

On his way to inspect a country estate left to him by his uncle, Nash Renfrew is tossed from his horse and is rendered unconscious.

Maddy Woodford, who takes care of her 5 siblings, witnesses Nash’s tumble. She jeopardizes propriety - and a good wheelbarrow - by carting the man into her cottage.

Nash awakens two days later without any recollection of his own name, let alone his rank and station. Through all the confusion, Maddy proves to be his salvation.

The Accidental Wedding is a fairy tale any girl would love. Two people, likely to never know love find each other to make the perfect match in this extraordinary love story. Anne Gracie’s writing is historical romance at it’s best

Young Maddy Woodford watches a handsome young many race across the property where she lives oblivious to those around him. In horror, she watches as he hits a dangerous patch of ice, knocked unconscious when he’s thrown from his horse and badly injured. Maddy races out
An unoriginal pick-and-mix of historical romance tropes, unrelieved by either characterisation or narrative.

The first few chapters were delightful. A handsome aristocrat is thrown from his horse and suffers head and leg injuries right outside of the cottage of a beautiful, intelligent, impoverished, hard-working Cinderella stereotype. With the help of the brood of Trapp Family kids she’s raising, she takes in the injured stranger and nurses him back to consciousness and health. A nice meet-cute,

I've always loved stories. Family legend has it that I used to spend hours playing in the sand pit, with a dog on either side of me and Rocka the horse leaning over me, his head just touching my shoulder, while I told them stories. I have to say, dogs and horses are great audiences, apart from their tendency to drool occasionally. But people are even nicer.
