A New York Times Bestseller
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Anthony Bridgerton, in the second of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.
This time the gossip columnists have it wrong. London’s most elusive bachelor Anthony Bridgerton hasn’t just decided to marry—he’s even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended’s older sister, Kate Sheffield—the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate’s the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams...
Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands—and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate’s determined to protect her sister—but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony’s lips touch hers, she’s suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Could not wait to finish it. I love the humorous back and forth between the main characters.55
I really loved this book more than half way through. Kate and Anthony’s chemistry and flirting were so entertaining. I do feel like it was over emphasized and redundant about her not being as beautiful as her sister. The thing that left me disappointed was he turned chauvinistic on their wedding night “denying his rights” and the fact he never truly told her how much he wanted her & never the sister. I sincerely hope season 2 of Bridgerton does a more romantic scene that the book. Overall I liked this book until then.45
I watched the Netflix adaptation and decided to read the books to see what’s next in the story. I was kind of put out by all the constant “I’m going to murder him/her”. It wasn’t funny and it makes the read a bit annoying. The author should show a bit more variety in her writing of the dialog. Other than that the book was okay.55
I think it was over done and the end was ridiculous .35
Didn’t think after the first one another good romance in the family would be possible! But the book didn’t disappoint! Very good!55
100% better than the first book in the series.55
I love historical romance. I also love a good enemies to lovers romance. The banter between Anthony and Kate is so perfect. I laughed so much reading this book. I cannot wait to read more in this series.55
Anthony is one of the best characters in this series and the entire plot of him finally finding love is one of the most attention-grabbing storylines ever. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & will mostly likely be reading it again!!55
I loved this book even more than the first!55
