Anthony's father passed away rather suddenly and he's been the 'responsible one' all his life. His father died before he was forty, and Anthony has a deep sense of his own mortality. Love is not for him. He cannot do to his wife what was done to his mother. He will never marry for love. All he wants is an heir. He chooses Edwina Sheffield, a pretty empty-headed blonde.
Enter Kate Sheffield. Edwina's older sister.
Kate was born to be a Bridgerton. We know that. Anthony's a bit slow on the uptake. The attraction's there. Oh yes. The verbal repartee and battle of wits is there, certainly. But it isn't till that fatal game of Pall Mall that things just go..er...pell mell. Every phase of their courtship is just absolutely fantastic. One of my favourite Bridgerton books...okay so they're ALL my favourite...one of my three most favourite Bridgerton books.
They are seriously let down though by her lack of knowledge about the way people behaved or spoke in the Regency times. They did not 'fancy' each other or have Kerosene . Ladies morals especially were very carefully guarded & did not 'snog' or punch people ( a good hard slap has worked for ladies for hundreds of years & leaves a satisfying red face !! )
The sex was too much & not very well written- as grown ups we all know what goes on in the bedroom & don't need it spelled out in lots of detail.
If the reader is interested in how people really did talk & act in Regency time - read Georgette Heyer books. Some of the very best are ,Lady of Quality / Grandy Sophy / Arabella & many more.
