On the sixth of April, in the year 1812 – precisely two days before her sixteenth birthday – Penelope Featherington fell in love. But Colin Bridgerton certainly didn’t fall in love with her in 1812 (and not in 1813, 1814, 1815, or – oh blast, not in all the years 1816-1822, either, and certainly not in 1823, when he was out of the country the whole time, anyway..’ Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend’s brother forwell, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secretand fears she doesn’t know him at all.Goodreads: Romancing Mister Bridgerton
Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought of as nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of everyone’s preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can’t seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph. But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroard he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same – especially Penelope Featherington! The girl haunting his dreams. But when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decideis she his biggest threat – or his promise of a happy ending?
- The actual romance happens quickly. So does the wedding. What is standout is the ending – which, like Terry Pratchett’s Making Money is all about avoiding blackmail by exposing yourself (not in a haun way) instead.
- If the Netflix series lasts up to this book, I am really looking forward to Adjoa Andah killing it being Lady Danbury when this becomes Season 4.
