Description

A New York Times Bestseller

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Francesca Bridgerton, in the sixth of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.

FRANCESCA’S STORY

In every life there is a turning point. A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one’s life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London’s most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.

After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.

But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

    I’m reading the books in order and this by far has been my favorite. It’s nice to read about someone who is able to enjoy herself. Also, the topics throughout the book were meaningful. Very much enjoyed this book.
  • STEAMY & SEXY

    This has to be the most erotic of all the books in this series! Definitely not for the faint hearted or prudish mindsets. Michael is sexy and handsome as sin, the misunderstood playboy of the period who drowns his heart with mere flings. On a different note, I love how we get to have snippets of the other Bridgerton siblings in these books.

    I think this one may just be my favorite of all the Bridgerton books to date. I was swept in from the beginning and cried as Francesca experienced her losses and shared in the joy she later felt. This book had all the feels.
  • I love every book!

    This book was by far my favorite book in series ! I wasn’t to excited to read it because Francesca is hardly in the other novels, but this took me by surprise. This book was steamy, heart wrenching and had me in tears a few times. I don’t advise skipping the second epilogue at the very end because it truly did it for me, pushed it pasted my expectations. Absolutely amazing!

    I was not looking forward to Francesca’s story. In truth because she was the least interesting sibling. But from the very start I was hooked. Each time I read these books I think it can get better than the he last book. But each time I fall in love all over again.
