Growing up together in Wiltshire has given Kit the odd idea that he and Emeline are practically siblings. They are not. Now that they are both in London for the 1804 Season, Emeline is going to prove it to him. Emeline and Kit both have mothers who are determined that they marry into the peerage, but that isn't going to stop Emeline from using every ploy she can think of to get Kit to realize that he loves her. What Emeline quickly realizes is that growing up in Wiltshire has not prepared her to have "ploys." She does, however, have Lady Eleanor Kirkland as a new London friend and Eleanor is very sophisticated for a girl just Out, and she has very sophisticated Town connections, one of them being Sophia Dalby, ex-courtesan and widowed countess. Between Eleanor and Emeline, Kit and Lord Raithby, Emeline's mother and Kit's mother, Emeline's three younger brothers, and with a final push from Sophia Dalby, there are ploys aplenty. Find out how Kit falls accidentally in love in this lighthearted Regency romp, a novella in the More Courtesan Chronicles series. ...

Accidentally in Love Reviews
D+ at AAR.As well as being part of Ms Dain’s Courtesan Chronicles series, this novella is also one of a series of mixed-genre novellas from Red Door Reads. It’s light and fluffy, written with a deft touch – and it certainly passed an hour or so pleasantly, but it’s rather too insubstantial for my tastes.The plot can be summed up as follows: Emeline Harlow has been in love with her childhood friend, Kit Cullen, for as long as she can remember, but he doesn’t seem to have noticed or share her feelings. How is she going to get him to fall in love with her?And that’s it.It’s fun and frothy, and while Emeline’s constant “oh, he’s soooooo gorgeous, but he’s so thick not to have noticed me!” is a bit overdone, it’s written with a gentle humour that makes it less than grating.The writing flows well, and we are introduced to various characters who will no doubt make appearances in future stories. But the characterisation is shallow overall, and Kit is presented as rather a “mummy’s boy”, something which clearly annoys Emeline, as on the couple of occasions in the story when she and Kit have an actual conversation, she confronts him about it.There is little dialogue, although what there is is perfectly fine.Would I read this again? Has it interested me in reading more in the series? Probably not, on both counts.If you’ve got an hour to spare and are in the mood for something akin to a very frothy cappuccino – one that’s all froth and hardly any coffee – then this might suit. But if you want to read a novella that delivers on the coffee, stick to Courtney Milan.I stand by my original comment, which was "Pretty pointless."
I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. It's my habit to not give novellas more than 3 stars since they are so short. This one made me chuckle a few times, which is always a good thing! The gist: Emeline and Kit have grown up together. They're practically brother and sister, except they aren't related at all. Emeline has been in love with Kit since she very first met him. Kit is a dude, so he has no idea. They're both in London for their first Seasons to check out the marriage mart. Emeline already knows she wants to marry Kit, now she has to convince him that he loves her right back!This story was super cute! The writing style was unusual, but quickly grew on me. It was witty and sweet. I'll definitely look for more books from this author!
This is from the More Courtesan Chronicles- romance in the Regency Era. Emeline grew up with Kit- and she knows she wants to marry him. She needs to convince him! He sees her more as a kid sister- he's seen her wading in brooks.They go to London for the 'season' of 1804. Despite their parents wanting them each to marry well will they find love together.A very light read.
I found the title of this novella, Accidentally In Love intriguing, after all, isn't that the way of love, it's not as though most people purposefully try to fall in love.This was a lovely historical romance, full of yearning, passion, love that was always there but never recognized it as love, and the obligatory snobby ton who in romance hindsight are often not as snobby as they seem.As always with novellas the rhythm felt slightly rushed, but Accidentally In Love had enough of quixotic air of love to overcome, and in the end, charm its readers.I was pleased to be able to borrow this digital read from Netgalley.com
This is book 1.5 in the More Courtesan Chronicles.Miss Emeline Harlow has been in love with Kit Culley all of her life. She knows without a doubt that he is the man she will marry. Unfortunately, he sees her as a sister having grown up together. That is until they make the journey to London and Kit realizes that Emeline is NOT just like a sister.This was a very quick, enjoyable read.
