The Accidental Wedding
by Debra Elizabeth


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



Unemployed Keira Callahan decides to try her luck at the casino before delving back into job hunting. As she walks through the casino, she bumps into the most handsome man she’s ever seen. When he asks her to dinner, she doesn’t hesitate. As she learns Cade Tyndale’s story—he needs to wed or lose his British estate, her impulsive nature rears up and she agrees to marry him and move to England for one year. What does she have to lose except her heart to the impossibly handsome Earl of Barrett?



“Forget it, Elizabeth. I don’t see how I can pull it off,” Cade Tyndale, the fourteenth Earl of Barrett, said to his twenty-three-year-old sister. It saddened him to see the frown on her pretty oval face. “Besides, eligible young women don’t pop up out of thin air these days. I fear the worst, that Edward will indeed inherit the estate even though I’ll keep the title, Earl of Barrett. What’s a title without the estate? I won’t be in charge of making any decisions about how the income is spent. Those decisions will fall to Edward. We must resign ourselves to it.”

Elizabeth shook her head vigorously, her blond hair flying out around her head. “Cade, don’t say that. We’ll figure something out,” she said, turning and staring out the window of their ancestral home.

“It’s not fair. Why does it have to be like this?”

Cade walked to her and wrapped his arm around her shoulders, giving her a gentle squeeze. “I know, but that’s what the will states. There’s no contesting it. If I could have changed the terms, you know I would have done it.”

She turned into him and buried her face in his chest, soft sobs escaped her throat.

He stroked her hair while holding her tight. “Please don’t cry. It won’t be so bad.”

“Perhaps a ball,” Elizabeth said.

“A ball?”

“Yes, of course. Young women love balls, and you’ll be able to find a suitable wife.”

Cade gently grasped her small hands within his. “Stop.”


“Please stop. There will be no ball. I cannot find a wife like that. There is no fairytale ending here.”

“But Cade…”

Cade shook his head. “I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but there’s nothing more I can do.”

Tears welled again in Elizabeth’s blue eyes before spilling down her cheeks. “Won’t you keep trying?”

He tried to pull her in closer for a hug, but she ran out of the library. Cade watched her leave, then turned to gaze out the window. He was out of options to make things better for her and for the future of the estate. There was no way he’d find a bride in less than a week. It was hopeless, and Edward would inherit the estate.

Behind him, he heard footsteps and turned to see his valet enter. “Will there be anything else, sir?”

Cade shook his head. “No, Clifton. Let’s go. There’s nothing more I can do here. Besides, I’m looking forward to enjoying myself in Las Vegas for a few days.”
“Very good, sir. The car is waiting.”



Okay this book pretty much sums up my dream fairy tale life lol!

As a girl from Vegas I totally loved that this book took place there!  Even better in the Bellagio Casino – where I often stay when I go back and visit.  So yes, this scenario could totally happen to me lol!

This book is about Keira, an unemployed, former marketing specialist, who is a bit unsure what direction her life is going in.  So, to try and figure things out she moves out of her apartment, puts her stuff in storage, and goes down to Las Vegas to spend some time with her sister’s family.  Deciding to go out on the town one night and blow off some steam she ends up at the Bellagio Casino on the Strip.

This book is about Cade, a sexy, GQ, Brit, from England, who is battling his own life issues.  Deciding to also get away to sort things out he ends up in Sin City as well.

Cade, the Earl of Barrett, inherited his title and family estate upon his father’s death.  Unfortunately, his father placed strict stipulations that if Cade was not married for at least one year before turning thirty he would forfeit his claim on the estate and it would transfer to Cade’s younger brother, Edward.

Upon arriving in Vegas, Cade’s twenty-ninth birthday was only five days away.  Cade was just about to run out of time before opportunity literally ran right into him!  That’s right!  Keira had just won big at the slot machines and was so excited she wasn’t paying attention and bumped into Cade on the casino floor.  These two felt an instant spark and Cade asked her to dinner.  Over dinner they both opened up about the problems they faced and the difficult choices they weren’t sure how they were going to handle.  Although, Keira had just met Cade she offered to marry him as it would solve both of their problems – she needed a place to live and had always wanted to visit England; and he needed a wife.  Cade was smitten with her and Keira found him quite handsome and charming.  Plus, they both knew they needed each other so they agreed to marry for one year and one day.  But what started out as a business arrangement, starts to get blurry when the more time they spend together the more they grow fonder of each other.  It isn’t long before feelings are developed and emotions are on the line.  But will they admit that to each other?  Or will they stick to their agreement of keeping it professional?  Then add in family drama, a brother trying to break up the marriage to win over the estate, a culture adjustment and being thousands of miles away from family and friends – things definitely complicated – and well entertaining!

I loved the characters!  Keira and Cade were likable, honest, and genuine.  They were very well developed!  Cade was a true gentleman and Keira was a lady.  I loved their chemistry!  Also, the way the fought for each other, helped each other, supported each other, and pushed each other to succeed.

This book was beautifully written with fantastic details, and wonderful characters!  Also, I totally loved the storyline!  Very creative, but still realistic!  And I'm totally gonna be booking another trip to the Bellagio soon lol!

{{I noticed that some people mentioned unrealistic in the sense that nobody would trust and marry someone and move to another country without really knowing them...  But honestly, that's not true...  I really think it's a generation thing, and as a millennial we all are too trusting and often meet people after just a few hours (if that) in person after chatting online or go home with someone after meeting them at a club and only dancing with them for maybe a couple songs...  We see celebrities get married after only knowing each other for a couple weeks or a couple months...  So not unrealistic at all...}}

This book is fast paced and keeps you fully engaged and entertained through the last page!

I gave this book a strong five-star rating and I probably would have given it more if I could have!

I would absolutely recommend this book to all romance readers!  This is a wonderful take on a modern-day fairy tale!  I can't wait to see what Debra write's next...  Perhaps a book featuring Cade's sister, Elizabeth???
