4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


On the sixth of April, in the year 1812 - precisely two days before her sixteenth birthday - Penelope Featherington fell in love.

But Colin Bridgerton certainly didn't fall in love with her in 1812 (and not in 1813, 1814, 1815, or - oh blast, not in all the years 1816-1822, either, and certainly not in 1823, when he was out of the country the whole time, anyway..' Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend's brother forwell, 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 secretand 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 everyone's preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can't seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph.

But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroard he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same - especially Penelope Featherington!

The girl haunting his dreams. But when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decideis she his biggest threat - or his promise of a happy ending?

Review by

I'm a book borrower. I often borrow books and never finish them. It's a quest to get myself to turn into a reader, but I'm not actually that big on reading. A friend loaned this to me when I wanted to read without a lot of heavy thinking. It's her favorite "romance novel" and that is in every sense of the word. I'd never read a romance novel before. It was fun.

It's been a long time since I read this novel. I'd forgotten just how much I love it. I adore Colin, though his pity parties did get old. But even more, I love Penelope. She's such a wonderful character - full of life, love and a strong sense of self. I also love that Lady Whistledown is revealed in this book.
