Publisher Description

In every life there is a turning point … A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one’s life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London’s most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton. After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin. But that was then … Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love … until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets …

"Enjoyed this book, it was the first Julia Quinn book I have read and she was recommended to me as an author by Catherine Anderson.It was sad that Michael had to wait so long for Francesca but everything worked out in the end. after re-reading the book, I got even more out of it. Francesca loses the husband she loved and Michael who has loved her since the moment he first saw her feels guilty because he loves her and more so now his cousin has died. I can't help feeling that there was something Francesca felt for Michael even before her husband died but because of guilt on both sides, the feelings one would have expected to flourish, couldn't until they had made peace with John. Finally Michael found a way to make it happen and thank goodness he did."

Quotes

  • “Sultry-voiced narrator Rosalyn Landor takes on the sixth title in the Bridgertons series…Landor applies her considerable talents while holding together this lively, rather steamy Regency romance…Michael is portrayed as decidedly stiff and gruff—when he's not using his sexy voice to seduce Francesca. Landor voices Francesca as gracious, warm, and level-headed, in sharp contrast to the other husband-hunting girls of the Ton. Through it all, Landor's husky tones draw listeners into the passionate seduction scenes between Michael and Francesca.”

    " Entertaining, but this time the scenes are hotter than any I've read so far. Other topics are much heavier too, like dealing with death and miscarriage. It was touching that love can overcome such huge barriers. "

    " OMG where can I get myself a Michael? I LOVED this book. It is such a nice change of pace when it is the HERO that is in love with and pines for the heroine for years. Which is the case here. Michael loved Francesca from the second he saw her. Too bad she was marrying his cousin. "
