Bridgerton

Bridgerton The Duke and I by Julia Quinn

A #1 New York Times Bestseller  From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Daphne Bridgerton, in the first of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix. In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty: love ignores every rule... This novel includes the 2nd epilogue, a peek at the story after the story.

You don't have to read the first two books ( The Wild Child and The China Bride) to enjoy this one, but all three are packed with adventure, romance, and characters who overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to find true love. I recommend the entire series!" —Old Book Barn Gazette "Mary Jo Putney can sweep readers into exotic locales as easily as into the ballrooms and courtrooms of Victorian England with all its pomp and ceremony.  I was captivated by the fascinating Eastern culture, swept up in Alexandra and Gavin's passionate romance.  Though some readers may find a few events predictable, most will surely enjoy another finely crafted tale by the mistress of the genre." —Romantic Times "With its strong, courageous characters, high degree of emotional intensity, excellent writing, and compelling plot, this novel is classic Putney and a fitting conclusion to the trilogy that began with The Wild Child.  One of the best authors writing today, Putney is not shy about dealing with serious, sometimes controversial issues, and she has  few peers when it comes to creating emotionally satisfying romances that connect with readers" —Library Journal "This final volume in a popular trilogy ( The Wild Child; The China Bride) is a rich and realistic 19th-century historical romance... Both characters have vivid inner lives and thoroughly imagined personalities. Their union is inevitable—this is a romance novel—but their journey from strangers to spouses to true lovers is utterly authentic." —Publishers Weekly The Bride Trilogy: The Wild Child, #1 The China Bride, #2 The Bartered Bride, #3 About the Author A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney's novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy.
