Amazon Review

Wise, lovely and kind, Kate Sheffield is determined that her beautiful half-sister, Edwina, marry a reputable man in The Viscount Who loved Me. Unfortunately for Kate, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton--London's most eligible bachelor and a notorious rake to boot--sets his sights on Edwina, and what the viscount wants, the viscount gets. Only this time, Anthony must win the elder sister's approval before he may charm the young beauty into marriage.

Hardly a problem for the impossibly handsome viscount, that is until the determined Kate, whose deep, dark eyes and lush mouth send his senses racing, presents a challenge that Anthony cannot refuse. Worse yet, Kate's response to his playful advances only confirms the ardent attraction that both seem desperate to deny. Anthony is faced with a dilemma. On the one hand, the perfectly amiable Edwina, while on the other, the most stubborn, single-minded--yet confoundedly desirable--female ever to grace a London ballroom. Anthony's quandary comes to a fast and fateful conclusion when he and Kate are caught in an innocent but compromising position. There's no choice but to marry, a resolution that leaves both parties uneasy. For despite their growing feelings, each struggles with personal demons that may destroy any chance for true happiness.

It's no surprise that Julia Quinn's setting, characterisation, and plot are flawless. Add to this masterful mix deeper emotional issues offset by the trademark Quinn wit, and you truly do have romance at it's best. Nobody does Regency quite like the mighty Quinn. --Lois Faye Dyer


"'1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better...' Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814 Praise for Julia Quinn: 'Writers like Quinn are reinventing the romance novel for the post-feminist generation' TIME MAGAZINE 'Captivating and alluring, THE VISCOUNT WHO LOVED ME is vintage Julia Quinn.' ROMANTIC TIMES" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A delightful and heart-warming romance. You might think all romances would be heart-warming, but believe me, they're not. It was reassuring to read a historical romance which was more concerned with the characters and their feelings than secret government missions or revenge motives. It was also cockle-warming to read about two characters who were throughly nice (boring word I know) and who each loved their family and friends. My one little niggle is when will Julia Quinn learn that the English never married in their houses, let alone the drawing room? It would have been a church wedding (in the morning) or nothing. Thankfully the very American wedding scene takes barely a page, and you can quickly skip over it and forget about it and get caught up in the heart-renching, and ultimately, sweet, wedding night happenings. I would recommend this book, and while you are at it, pick up the companion book, The Duke And I. The next in the series, An Offer From A Gentleman, is due out in July and I for one can't wait.

The Viscount Who Loved Me - Bridgerton Book 2.

The Storyline:
Anthony Bridgerton (the Hero) suddenly decides its time to settle down and marry. He wants a bride he cannot fall in love with, so asks his brother Colin (star of Bridgerton Book 4) who the diamond of the season is - Edwina Sheffield.
Meanwhile, Kate Sheffield (the Heroine) has read all about Anthony's antics as a Rake in Lady Whistledown's Newspaper column and knows she doesn't want him anywhere near her beloved sister Edwina. Edwina has told everyone that before she accepts a suitor's marriage proposal they need permission from her sister, Kate, so Anthony sets about winning over Kate to get to Edwina. However, this seems doomed from the start, as Anthony and Kate clash from their very first words to each other. As Anthony tries to court Edwina, fate continually throws him together with Kate, as she tries to keep him away from her sister (and herself!) What they didn't expect though, was a spark of something between them, as they continue to spar (amusingly) through dancing, walking Kate's dog and even an unexpected drenching in the Serpentine!
(- And this is all just in the first quarter of the book!)
Does Anthony marry Edwina? Can Kate and Anthony ever get along? Will they live happily ever after? Read it and laugh your SOCKS off!!

Why Buy?
After reading JQ's first Bridgerton book (The Duke&I) I was unsure about buying this book because Anthony was so overprotective of Daphne. But (of course) I couldn't resist and bought the book. Much to my delight, I was pleasantly surprised - I LOVED it! If fact I now rate this book on my list higher than The Duke! This has to be because of the main characters. Anthony & Kate are just perfect for each other.

Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton is a Rake (to paraphrase Lady Whistledown, a Rake is dangerous to women, while a rake merely thinks he is), but after ten years of pleasurable pursuits he's decided it's time to get married. Time he found a wife, settled down and sired an heir. He's not asking for much - a little beauty and intelligence is all he needs. Oh, and he mustn't fall in love with her.

Edwina Sheffield fits his criteria to perfection; she's beautiful, smart and sweet, and absolutely no risk to his heart. His blood pressure, however, is a different matter, for the way to Edwina's hand lies through the approval of her sister. And Kate Sheffield is not impressed.

It's soon obvious that this pair have two vital things in common - fierce devotion to their families, and a severely adverse reaction to each other. But several farcical situations push them closer together, until the intervention of a tiny bee leads to a compromising situation and a gossip's dream.

For Anthony it's only a minor setback because he's a sensible, rational man who won't fall in love if he won't allow himself to. Yes, it's truly that simple. Easy, really. Anthony's certain he need never fear falling in love, ever.

This, the second of the 'Bridgerton' novels, is utterly fabulous, packed full of laugh-out loud moments, and one or two worthy of a cringe, but always intensely enjoyable. Anthony's obsession with his father's death and his need to marry without love collides spectualarly with Kate's obsession that Edwina will never, ever marry him. The fierce, overprotective elder brother from 'The Duke and I' truly meets his match in the independent, forthright and fiendishly intelligent Kate. They are clearly far too similar to ever reach an agreement over Edwina.

really irritated - this is advertised as a book (normal price 7.99) with 394 pages - in fact it is a pamphlet - about 20 or 30 pages long at the absolute most - no one in their right mind would pay £1.18 for it let alone the supposed £7.99 price. Total swiz - how do I get my money back?

Anthony is the eldest Bridegerton. It's A for Anthony since Lady Bridgerton named her children in alphabetical order. Of all the Bridgertons, Violet Bridgerton takes the cake. You'll meet her in every book and grow to love her the way you never loved your own mother.

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 mell. Every phase of their courtship is just absolutely fantastic. One of my favourite Bridgerton books...okay so they're ALL my of my three most favourite Bridgerton books.
