Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn continues her Bridgerton prequel series with a new novel following the adventures--and love stories--of the Bridgerton and Rokesby families.

She was in the wrong place...

Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers’ hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain’s bed…

He found her at the wrong time...

Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he’s stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real—and his duty to the Crown means he's stuck with her. 

Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?

 When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal—though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew’s secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart…?

great romance

I enjoyed this prequel to The Bridgerton series. It had some absolutely hilarious scenes. I was laughing out loud and disturbing others quite callously. Poppy Bridgerton is too curious and gets herself kidnapped by “smugglers”. Captain Andrew James has secrets that must be kept the first being his identity. I think this is a very good book. There are several steamy sex scenes in it.

Inconsistent story line

I loved the story. Andrew and Poppy were great and their dialogue witty. What killed me was the inconsistency in the family back story. I just read Edmund’s story. Career mIlitary man marries Cecilia 7 years prior to this book. But this book says he married violet at 19, which would mean he was never in the military. Also, at the end of Edmund’s book there is a reference to Andrews adventures, but now it’s 7 years later before he finds his love...
