I had a few reasons that I really wanted to read Compromising Willa. The first reason is that I have read another book in the Accidental Peers by Diana Quincy and I really enjoyed it. It was a great story. So when I had a chance to read this book I jumped at the chance. The second reason I really wanted to read this book is more personal. I loved that Willa's name was Wilhelmina, my Grandmother's name was Wilhelmina so I felt a personal connection to Willa right away.
Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope has had a rough few years. She has come to the conclusion she really would just rather not marry. Her life is going on fine on her own and she thinks she wants to keep it that way. That is until the man that jilted her and ruined her reputation arrives back in town. Earl of Bellingham is determined to have Willa for his own and he doesn't care what means he has to go to in order to accomplish this.
However Duke of Hartwell is just back in town as well and he has an instant attraction for Willa. Willa is a little offish at first because she wants to stay single. These two have some tension between them that adds to the sparks they create when they are together. I really enjoyed watching these two get to know each other.
I don't want to tell you two much but a lot of drama happens and situations are changed. Many things occur and a lot of secrets are revealed. This book is a page turner. I could not wait to see what could possibly happen next. There were so many things happening. As I said I had an instant connection to Willa so I found myself cheering her on along the way.
I really enjoyed this story. I have just recently discovered my love of historical romance and Diana Quincy is another one of my new favorite authors. She writes a wonderful historical romance that certainly has a way of keeping my attention.
This is part of the Accidental Peers series but you will have no problem reading it as a stand alone, if you haven't read the other two books in the series. However they are great as well so you might think about picking them up too.
I can't wait to see what she may have in store for us lucky readers next. I know that I will certainly be looking forward to whatever she has out next.
If you enjoy a historical romance with some drama, I think you will really enjoy this book. If you are already a fan of Diana Quincy then hurry grab up your copy so you may start reading right away.
I was given the opportunity to read this book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Compromising Willa.
