A New York Times bestseller
From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the second novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix.
1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better... --Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814
But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry--he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield--the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams...
Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands--and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate's determined to protect her sister--but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...
This novel includes the 2nd epilogue, a peek at the story after the story.

It was great, seeing how I went from the show straight to book#2 just see how Anthony’s life would turn out and it was a bit predictable from the begging of who he was going to fall in love with but I mean it was a great book. Not sure that I want to read the next book because I was aching for more of Simon and Daphne and although they made small appearances it wasn’t enough for me lol but you’ll enjoy this one. 🙌🏼
Entertaining from beginning to end!
Anthony is one of the best characters in this series and the entire plot of him finally finding love is one of the most attention-grabbing storylines ever. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & will mostly likely be reading it again!!
I loved this book even more than the first!
