From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series.

In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable.

Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen.

Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar.

The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty:

Love ignores every rule…

thoroughly loved the Duke and I. I know I’ve read it before, but it remains one of my absolute favorite books. There’s just something about Simon and Daphne heading up for Stephanie’s mother. That makes me want to make them a part of my life and my family I thoroughly loved the Duke and I. I know I’ve read it before but it remains one of my absolute favorite books.

I would like to begin by saying DO NOT REAL THE SECOND EPILOGUE UNTIL AFTER READING THE REST OF THE BOOKS! I made the mistake of reading it and having several of the other books spoiled because of it. Now, with this story, I was disappointed. The storyline is decent but the way it was written is not. Her vocabulary is good, but the writing is lazy. There were time jumps that could have been used to actually flesh the story out a little more. The story ends about 60 pages before the actual nook book ends, which is annoying. I feel like she shod have used more to give us more. I guess I'm just spoiled by Lisa Kleypas and other authors in this genre going the extra bit to really immerse the reader.
