Romancing Mister Bridgerton

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
Everyone knows that Colin Bridgerton is the most charming man in London…

Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend’s brother for… well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret… and fears she doesn’t know him at all.

Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought of as nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can’t seem to publish an edition without mentioning him.

But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroad, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same—especially Penelope Featherington! The girl who was always simply there is suddenly the girl haunting his dreams.

And when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide . . . is she his biggest threat— or his promise of a happy ending?

Hott Review:

I adored Romancing Mister Bridgerton! I could pick it up and read it again now. Penelope has been one character that I’ve loved from the very first Bridgerton book I read.
Romancing Mister Bridgerton has the reality we pretend we don’t want fully immersed with a romance we dream about. It’s the perfect combination of reality and fantasy with characters we wish we could be.
I devoured Romancing Mister Bridgerton barely moving from my chair until it was finished and then walking around aimlessly because I missed them.

2nd Epilogue — 🙁 I didn’t love it… well, I did but there were spoilers, from Penelope & Colin’s point of view, that sort of ruined the next book for me. Uhhh, don’t think I’m going to hesitate reading To Sir Phillip, With Love though. It’s still high on my list.

Author Bio:

Julia Quinn#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don’t read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

In 2010, Ms Quinn won her third RITA Award in four years and was the thirteenth author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Her books have been translated into twenty-eight languages, and she has been profiled in USA Today and TIME Magazine. Her twenty-third novel, The Sum of All Kisses, was released in late 2013.
