To Sir Phillip, with Love Paperback
by Julia Quinn
Part of the Bridgerton Family Series series
My dear Miss Bridgerton. We have been corresponding now for quite some time, and although we have never formally met, I feel as if I know you.
Forgive me if I am too bold, but I am writing to invite you to visit me here at Romney Hall.
It is my hope that after a suitable period of time, we might decide that we will suit, and you will consent to be my wife'.
Sir Phillip knew from his correspondence with his dead wife's distant cousin that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he'd proposed, figuring that she'd be homely. Except she wasn't. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quie, all he wanted to do was kiss her.
Eloise Bridgerton couldn't marry a man she had never met!
But then she started thinkingand wondering and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match.
Except he wasn't. Her perfect husband wouldn't be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was rough and rugged.
But when he smiled and when he kissed herthe rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn't help but wonder could this imperfect man be perfect for her?

Review by Anniik
I love the Bridgertons! This book is one of my favorites. Sir Phillip is sad and a bit brooding, while Eloise is bright and happy. Phillip is attracted to the fact that she's happy - partially because his late wife was depressed and had killed herself. While Phillip is not nearly as troubled as Michael, or Simon, or even Anthony, he is an injured soul and I liked seeing him brighten up as he came to love and trust Eloise. I also enjoy the interaction in this book between Phillip and the Bridgerton boys when they come to rescue Eloise. Priceless! I must say that Julia Quinn is a master at getting men <i>right</i>. This is a sweet story, well written as all of Julia Quinn's books are. Well worth reading!
