Anthony Bridgerton, London’s most elusive bachelor, has given no sign that he expects to marry in 1814, but this author predicts that it will be a busy year anyway.
Besides, he has no reason to care. No one can play the role of the consummate rake quite like you… —Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, April 1814
The tabloid writers are wrong this time, though. Anthony Bridgerton has made the commitment to get married, and he’s even picked out a lady! The only thing standing in his way is Kate Sheffield, the most interfering woman to ever grace a London ballroom and the older sister of his fiancée. Anthony is going crazy because of the scheming spirit’s insistence on stopping the engagement, but when he goes to sleep, Kate is the woman who haunts his increasingly sexual nightmares.
Kate is certain in the assertion that rehabilitated rakes do not make good spouses, and that Anthony Bridgerton is the most evil rogue there is. Kate is resolved to safeguard her sister, but she worries that her own heart may be at risk if she does so. She has a sudden fear that she might give in to the disgusting rake herself when Anthony’s lips brush hers.
About The Author Julia Quinn
If you watch reruns of The Weakest Link, you might just see #1 New York Times bestselling novelist Julia Quinn win the $79,000 jackpot and debunk the stereotype that clever women don’t read (or write) romance. She failed miserably at demonstrating familiarity with baseball, country music, and stuffed animals, but she took great pride in scoring 100% on her tests of British and literary knowledge, 100% on her tests of knowledge of geography, and 100% on her tests of understanding that there was a Da Vinci before there was a code.
Ms. Quinn is one of just sixteen individuals to have been inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She and her family make their home in the Pacific Northwest, and her writings have been translated into 32 tongues.
Shondaland has begun production on a Netflix original series based on her bestselling historical romance series The Brighton, starring Julie Andrews, Phoebe Dynevor, and RégeJean Page.
The Viscount Who Loved Me Book Summary
This Author predicts that London’s most elusive bachelor, Anthony Bridgerton, will remain single in 1814 despite the year’s promising events. Why should he, if we’re being honest? Nobody does the role of the consummate rake better than you…
–April 1814 issue of Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers.
The Final Word:
Holy cow! This is a fantastic book. Julia Quinn did it again with Anthony, the eldest of the Bridgerton ‘children.’ He was the hero I hated in the first chapter and the one I loved at the end.
Anthony has accepted the inevitable, given the premature deaths of his father (at age 38) and uncle. This is why he has spent his whole life distant from everyone except his mother and siblings. As his 30th birthday approaches, he makes the decision to settle down with a wife and start a family. However, since he is aware (or at least assumes) that he will die at a young age, he has decided to select a bride with whom he is absolutely confident he will never fall in love. This is where he finally drove me completely bonkers. The thesaurus entry for the term “martyr” would include Anthony Bridgerton as an alternate entry. I wanted him to go play in a heather field full of bees at one point. I feel bad, it was harsh, since towards the conclusion of the book I wanted to take him in and make him feel loved.
Overall, I preferred The Viscount Who Loved Me to The Duke and I because I found Daphne’s story to be flat and lacking in depth. Anthony and Kate Sheffield are such richly layered protagonists that I found myself yearning to know them on a deeper level, to experience their emotions—fear, rage, longing—through their eyes.Thanks to Julia Quinn’s skillful character development, I was able to do so, and in doing so I grew to care for both protagonists and root for their “happily ever after.”
