Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town's marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn't as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry--though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon's heart beating a bit faster. And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that is seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever!… (mer)

Very readable and fun to read. Total mishmash historical, and it uses what is a truly horrific childhood to continually throw wrenches in the relationship which should have been see, grab, hold. And then banishes the the consequences of the childhood when the page count was adequate. ( )

This was the second Bridgerton book that I read after having watched the series, and it answered the question I posed in my last review--where are all the supporting characters? The answer is the Netflix created a great cast of supporting characters to deepen our understanding of the main characters as well as fill in our understanding of the time period. Like the second book, this one was also hyper-focused on the main characters and we barely learned anything about the world in which they lived. All in all, I may leave it to Netflix to tell this story. ( )

"She smiled, and he forgot to breathe."

This book hardly needs another review at this point, so I'm just going to say it is quite splendid.

Don't listen to the naysayers, and don't be influenced by the TV series (of which I have seen some, and it is quite different to the book, though I've no doubt they both hit the same essential plot points).

I'm totally down for the rest of the series. ( )

I have not seen the Netflix adaptation, nor do I usually read historical romance, but due to the hype I decided to give this series a try. This was smooth easy reading. I wasn't blown away, but I was entertained. I'll keep reading. ( )

I received this book for free from the publisher (Avon Books) in exchange for an honest review.

To preface, I just want to say that I have not watched the show yet so I cannot say how it compares to it nor did I have any particular expectations going in. I wanted to read the book first before watching the show.

I ended up really enjoying this book!

The book was a lot funnier than I expected it to be. The humor was woven throughout the novel nicely. The little excerpts from Lady Whistledown were a very entertaining touch that added to the hilarity.

As for the two leads, I did prefer the Simon over Daphne. Daphne did some things that I was not a fan of. She wasn’t completely terrible; she just wasn’t my favorite. As for the supporting characters, I loved them all, especially the other Bridgerton siblings. I can’t wait to learn more about them in the rest of the books.

This edition did include the bonus Second Epilogue (which was originally published separately online) which I also enjoyed. It’s relatively short so it didn’t reveal that much, but it was still fun revisiting the characters again.

Overall, I found this to be a delightful read. I am looking forward to finally watching the show and continuing the series. ( )
