To Catch an Heiress
Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...
This is not one of those times.
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.
Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...
There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.
But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...
Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...
It is definitely a page turner. Can seem to put it down.
Loved the flow of events. Finished it in a day.
Another delightful novel by the brilliant JQ.
My God is it slow.
I never miss a Julia Quinn book. One of the best historical romance writers ever. Intrigue, romance, and a whole lot of fun.
Another great series from JQ that includes members of our favorite family. I loved Billie and how “uncommon”she was!
I read the story about Billie's parents but their personalities in this book don't match with their own story. Yes, they've aged but not so much that Lady Bridgerton turns into a ninny and Lord Bridgerton a doddering old fool. Would have been nice to have some continuity. But other than that a good story.
This was a pretty fun read. The female lead is very outgoing for her time. She's not great at being girly and doing girl things. The male lead has been her friend since they were kids. Finally something clicks for them. It has amusing dialogue and entertaining scenes. Since this is connected to Bridgertons series, I think readers of that series will be more involved in the storyline. I have not read it so I didn't recognize all the characters, but that didn't distract me from liking the book.
Read this in one day. I just couldn't put it down. Witty and delightful.
I really wanted to love this book, but was very disappointed: With 'Bridgerton' in the title, one assumes it's connected yet the only reference to the beloved series is that the heroine's last name is Bridgerton! Her parents are referenced as Lord and Lady Bridgerton -- had assumed they were Andrew and Kate, but no reference to them or any of the other Bridgertons we know and love from Julia Quinn's previous novels. Blah!
Another great book! Thank you for a beautiful love story with humor and wit all rolled in together. LOVED EVERY MINUTE!!!
I love Quinn's character development bit there could be a bit more adventure to her stories.
Julia Quinn did it again writing a book that was amazing and wonderful and a fan of her beloved Bridgertons will love this!!!! Couldn't put it down!!!!
This is a nice story about nice people ambling along to their happy ending. Julia Quinn is capable of better wit and creating more interest. There was never any doubt how this story would end. It's a blandly innocuous tale with little drama.
Julia Quinn has proven herself to be a truly inspired and creative writer. This book was entertaining and downright fun to read! I love the Bridgerton family!
I'm not sure I can even finish this book. 150 pages in and there is no storyline thus far, the writing is banal, and what constitutes as banter between the characters consists mostly of them telling each other to "shut up" (very 18th century). Contrary to the synopsis, there's nothing Downton Abbey-esque about this story.
