The Viscount Who Loved Me Paperback
by Julia Quinn
Part of the Bridgerton Family Series series
'Wise, witty and oh so delightful, Julia Quinn is truly our contemporary Jane Austen.' - Jill Barnett Anthony Bridgerton needs a wife.
Having spent his twenties in a rakish pursuit of pleasure (whilst taking care to ensure the financial security of his mother and seven younger siblings and mother) he knows it's high time he settled down and ensured the continuation of the Bridgerton line. Edwina Sheffield is considered the most beautiful debutante of the current season.
She is also sweet, innocent and eminently biddable - Anthony is sure she'll make a perfectly acceptable wife and vows to make her his. The only obstacle in his way is Edwina's older sister, Kate.
Kate is determined to do all she can to allow her sister the chance to marry for love rather than convenience. And the roguish viscount is beginning to think he may have met his match in Kate's keen wit and sharp tongue.
Until, that is, he makes the mistake of kissing her...'Quinn's witty Regency-set romantic comedies are the nest best thing to Georgette Heyer.' - Gloss 'Two more perfect characters...a quirky, irrepressible heroine...a romance readers will not want to put down...Hooray Julia!' Romance Reviews Today

Review by Anniik
You know, I hate the descriptions on the back of romance novels. They leave so much out and make the books sound so much sillier and pettier than they actually are. As they do with this book. But that's beside the point. As with the other two Julia Quinn novels I have reviewed to this point, this book was very good. I enjoy her writing style a great deal, although this book is a bit less "witty" than the other two - it certainly has its moments. I think one of the things I like best about Julia Quinn is how she makes her characters real. None of them are perfect - they all have their little foibles, which makes it easier for those of us who are not made to be in romance novels understand and relate that much better. Such as the fact that Kate can't dance. And she's a miserable musician. And she's figety. It just makes her human. Anthony is a wonderful tortured hero, as well, although in a much different way than Michael (When He Was Wicked) or Simon (The Duke And I). Truly an enjoyable book! I can't wait to read the rest!
