Description

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...

This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...

Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...

    I never miss a Julia Quinn book. One of the best historical romance writers ever. Intrigue, romance, and a whole lot of fun.
  • Well done

    Another great series from JQ that includes members of our favorite family. I loved Billie and how “uncommon”she was!
  • Good but some inconsistencies.

    I read the story about Billie's parents but their personalities in this book don't match with their own story. Yes, they've aged but not so much that Lady Bridgerton turns into a ninny and Lord Bridgerton a doddering old fool. Would have been nice to have some continuity. But other than that a good story.
  • fun conversations and situations

    This was a pretty fun read. The female lead is very outgoing for her time. She's not great at being girly and doing girl things. The male lead has been her friend since they were kids. Finally something clicks for them. It has amusing dialogue and entertaining scenes. Since this is connected to Bridgertons series, I think readers of that series will be more involved in the storyline. I have not read it so I didn't recognize all the characters, but that didn't distract me from liking the book.
  • Delight!

    Read this in one day. I just couldn't put it down. Witty and delightful.
  • If this is a Bridgerton novel, where are the Bridgertons???

    I really wanted to love this book, but was very disappointed: With 'Bridgerton' in the title, one assumes it's connected yet the only reference to the beloved series is that the heroine's last name is Bridgerton! Her parents are referenced as Lord and Lady Bridgerton -- had assumed they were Andrew and Kate, but no reference to them or any of the other Bridgertons we know and love from Julia Quinn's previous novels. Blah!
  • Love the Bridgertons
