  • Good start to a great series!

    The Duke and I by Julia Quinn (Audio Edition) Narrated by Rosalyn Landor Series: The Bridgertons #1 4 Stars - For my rereading of this book I chose the audio version. I found I enjoyed it just as much as when I read it the first time in print! Simon and Daphne are great together. I love that Simon finds peace within himself. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and of course all the Bridgerton siblings crack me up. This is a wonderful story about family. Rosalyn Landor does a superb job on narration as usual! On a side note.. the edition I listened to had the 2nd epilogue added on at the end. If you are someone who likes to read in order and not find out the the tiny details.. like who ends up with whom - perhaps save the 2nd epilogue till after all the other main books of the series. Then it's like a little treat to see everyone's life afterwards.

  • December 2016

    Yet another in the series. This has neen one of my favourites, so I recommend reading it. Julia Quinn manages all her characters so well, that makes it so enjoyable going from one book to the next. I would like the family tree at the beginning of her books to be updated each time.

  • Brilliant

    Light and relaxing read, great language, likable characters, lots of funny moments and doesn't end on a kiss, as most historical romances do;)

  • Sparks fly in Regency London

    Regency London has it's “season” of balls, drawing room visits and endless social outings. For aristocrats to mix with their peers, matches to be made and hopefully wedding bells will ring. Daphne Bridgerton, has seven siblings, she’s very close to her family and her mother Violet wants her to find a suitable husband. Daphne’s not shy, she makes friends easily and so far has had no luck finding a spouse. Of course she wants to get married, have children and she hasn’t found the perfect man and until she meets her older brothers handsome best friend. Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, has been touring aboard and has recently returned to England. Simon had a sad childhood, his mother passed away during childbirth, due to a having a stutter his father thought he was of low intelligence and ignored him. He doesn’t want to get caught up in social scene, get married and have a family of his own. When he meets Daphne they decide to have a fake courtship, to take the matrons attention away from the Duke, create some much needed male interest in Daphne and of course nothing went as planned. The Duke and I lived up to the hype, he’s suddenly jealous, and Daphne slowly breaks down the walls he’s built around his heart and changes his mind about family life. I look forward to reading other books in the series and five stars from me.

  • Sub-Heyer

    Here's the thing about Julia Quinn - I see lots of references to how funny she is, but I never laugh. I would dearly love to find a successor to Heyer, but Quinn isn't it. She says her books are fantasy and not meant to be seen as true 'Regency' - fair enough, I can accept the period lapses and the modern Americanisms, the sex carrying on beyond the final chaste kiss is fine but goodness I miss the intelligence, easily-conveyed period detail and sheer fun of Heyer that not one of the US Regency romance writers possesses.

    Thanks for your feedback!
