The Duke & I

Daphne Bridgerton is ready to be matched. Her upper crust family of Regency London will guide her through the season of wondrous balls and events hoping to keep suitors on her dance card. As the fourth of the eight Bridgerton children she has three older brothers to contend with and a mother who only wanted to make the perfect match. Less focused on love, these matches displayed ones place in society and the future of her sisters matches as well. In walks Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. The most handsome yet frustratingly enigmatic man Daphne had ever met. An old school mate and friend of her eldest brother, Simon was officially off limits. Facing his own societal pressures Simon and Daphne come up with a plan to develop a fake relationship, get through this tiresome game they are both facing and ultimately part amicably. Naturally, the plan falls to pieces as the beautiful and sexy young couple fall wildly, passionately and deeply in love. First in a series of dozens of books by Julia Quinn, Bridgertons recent craze on Netflix has all the girls swooning for more. I don’t know how in the world I missed this 20 years ago at it’s publishing but this is fabulous Regency romance that should not be missed. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
