    This book might tie for first place as my favorite Julia Quinn novel. It was an absolute delight to read! Both main characters were immensely likable, their conversation and banter flowed very well. The tension and feelings between them felt natural, and delicious. There were cats! In carriages! I stayed up way past my bedtime reading it, and immediately wanted to turn around and start it again. Julia Quinn knocks it out of the park again!

    I had no idea how much I needed a Baby Colin Bridgerton cameo, but Baby Colin truly made my day while I was reading this! Getting a brief, merry visit with Violet, Edmund and their young sons was a really lovely part of this Bridgerton prequel. I laughed out loud quite a bit while I read Georgie and Nicholas' friends-to-lovers story. The romance here is slow-burn, but the pay-off when they finally acknowledge their feelings is absolute fire. I th...

    I have adored this Bridgerton Prequel series and the Rokesby family.Georgiana Bridgerton and Nicholas Rokesby are old friends and neighbors who grew up together. Old friends who were comfortable and at ease with each other embark on a marriage of convenience to save Georgie’s reputation. Their conversations and close proximity traveling to Edinburgh allow for romance and love to blossom. This book shows the change that can happen when you begin...

    Georgiana Bridgerton is ruined. To no fault of her own, she was spirited away by a "gentleman" on the ton and spent a long carriage ride and a few hours in an inn. Alone. Nothing actually happened between them, but it doesn't matter. She can live as a spinster or she can marry the cad who ruined her. But then her childhood friend, Nicholas Rokesby, is summoned home from medical school in Edinburgh and his father demands that he marry Georgiana. N...

    ARC via Netgalley/Edelweiss. On the one hand, thoroughly enjoyable! On the other... where's the other half of the book? I'm serious, I got to the epilogue and was sure there had to be some sort of error with the file for that to be where the book ended. There's just not a whole lot of conflict, and what there is gets resolved so quickly that it almost feels like a cheat. A few notes: virgin hero (!!!), chronically ill heroine (Georgie has asthma)...

    Ah, Julia Quinn, my old fave. Probably one of the first romance authors I really fell for, as an adult. I think I was working at Borders when I found the Bridgerton series, so I bought them all and read voraciously. I think she's had a bit of trouble adjusting, 20 years later, to a more feminist, less patriarchal way of writing romances. Her heroines are never QUITE convincingly feminist, and the books are just less badass than say, Sarah Maclean...

    It was sweet. I did like seeing Violet and Edmund together, but it made me a little sad knowing what we know from reading The Bridgerton series.
