    Delightful

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. First Comes Scandal by Julia Quinn is a Bridgerton Prequel, the fourth book in the Rokesby’s series. It could be read as a standalone, but I’ve read and enjoyed the other books in this series, so do recommend reading them all. Nicholas Rokesby is at medical school in Edinburgh when he is summoned home by his father. The reason for the urgent summons is that a fortune-hunting suitor kidnapped close family friend Georgiana Bridgerton, and even though she managed to escape, her reputation has been ruined, and his father would like him to marry Georgiana to preserve her reputation as she has refused to marry the scoundrel. Nicholas is astounded by the suggestion. He had no plans to marry is in the middle of exams at medical school, and Georgiana is like a sister to him, isn’t she? Georgiana at first turns him down because she doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life feeling grateful, but as they spend time together, they begin to think that perhaps it’s not such a ridiculous idea. This is a delightful friends to lovers, not so convenient marriage of convenience story, and I enjoyed it immensely. Medium Steam.

    Can't read this without smiling!

    First Comes Scandal is the 4th book in Julia Quinn's Bridgerton prequel series Rokesbys. I've been feeling quite down lately with all that's going on in the world. I love all of Ms. Quinn's work, so I thought perhaps this book would cheer me up. It turns out it was just what the doctor ordered! This delightfully sparkling story of friends to lovers will lift your spirits and make you forget about the world for a while. After all, don't we read romances to escape from our daily grind? Nicholas Rokesby, fourth son of an earl and medical student studying in Edinburgh, is summoned home by an urgent message from his father. He rushes home, fearful of what he would find. However, he never expected this! His father's goddaughter, Georgiana "Georgie" Bridgerton, has been ruined, and his father wants him to ...wait for it...marry her! Their families have been friends and neighbors for years, and they are also connected by marriage. Nicholas is stunned and furious. Georgie's not too thrilled with the situation, either. They've been friends as long as they remember, but marriage? They decide to take a chance - friendship is more than a lot of married couples have together. Can it turn into more? Georgie and Nicholas were both totally enchanting characters. They are now one of my favorite romance couples. The thing I found so beautiful was their ability to make each other laugh until they cried. (After all, it's one of the reasons I married my own hero!) Georgie was fascinated by Nicholas' studies and doctoring , and she wanted to be involved in it. Nicholas realized just how beautiful and special he found Georgie. Friendship is a beautiful thing, isn't it? The supporting characters were also a delight. Anthony and Benedict, Georgie's nephews, were adorable little hellions. The families' butlers Wheelock and Thamesly were priceless. However, my favorite supporting character may very well be Cat-Head, the demon cat from hell. (Just picturing Cat-Head in his carriage hammock brings a smile to my face.). This is definitely a witty and romantic read you don't want to miss! I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and Edelweiss. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

    Good book but also feels unfinished

    There is nothing not to like with this book. The characters and dialogue are great but the ending felt abrupt. I felt at the end there was another chapter of the romance missing at the end. I would still definitely recommend it.

    An Unexpected Love!

    I think just a couple of words will take care of my review. Julia Quinn, Bridgertons. Must I say more? If you have read any of Julia's books and especially the Bridgerton series, you know they steal the hearts of all who are addicted to historical romance. Yes, raising both hands and happy to say so. Ms Quinn has an amazing gift of bring smiles, laugh out loud moments, serious angst, sometimes suspense, but always a story well told. Georgie Bridgerton ends up in a no win situation. Abducted for her dowry, she is ruined in the eyes of the Ton. Either marry the rogue or live her life alone. Not a great choice? But she is saved, or could it just be pulled out of the lesser of evils by the proposal of Nicolas Rokesby, who she has known as the boy next door. Could this be an unexpected match to happiness? Nicholas had only ever thought of her as a friend, but sometimes the least expected might be what fate had in mind!
