Lady Adeline Hays has one night to change her fate. Tomorrow, her engagement to a cruel, despicable earl will be announced. With the help of a trusted friend, she plans to be caught in a compromising situation with a man whose suit her father rejected. But her friend has designs of her own and Adeline ends up in the chamber of the Mad Duke. 

Edmond Rochester, the Duke of Wolverton, needs a wife for the sake of his children. What he doesn't need is the attraction he feels toward the beguiling beauty who traps him into marriage. Marked by the death of his first wife, Edmond is resolved to keep his new duchess at arm's length. But Adeline, and the passion she inspires, is hard to ignore...

Each book in the Wedded by Scandal series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Accidentally Compromising the Duke is the first book in my new series Wedded by Scandal. I was lazing on the couch with my head in hubby's lap watching Pride and Prejudice for the gazillion time, and I said, "Poor Jane, she is so in love with Mr. Bingley. I would have just compromised him instead... ...more

4.5 STARS!

Anticipation and nerves cascaded through her in equal measure at the notion of acting in a manner that was improper, potentially ruinous, and without any doubt, utterly scandalous.
LOVED it!!!

Lady Adeline has decided that drastic measures are in order. Not only does her father refu... ...more

I’m not a fan of the dead spouse trope so I’ve put this book off for a long time. When it came up on a reading challenge I bit the bullet and jumped in, hoping to just get it over with. However, I actually enjoyed it. The problem for me with dead spouses is the sense that the heroine is second be... ...more

I was sucked in by the blurb and to my delight the Stacy Reid delivered. I’ve been in a historical romance binge and was looking for a new author.

Accidentally Compromising the Duke is a good read. It has a hero with a dark past and a Heroine willing to do anything to get herself out of a p... ...more

This book was so addictive, I did not put it down since I started reading. I blame you, Stacy Reid, for the circles I am sure to have under my eyes in the morning.
