The Duke And I
The Duke And I | Julia Quinn
Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town′s marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn′t as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry - though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon′s heart beating a bit faster. And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever!

This has officially became a classic for me. The plot never once left me wanting more and the writing was absolutely beautifully done!

There's nothing more I can ask for in a book.

Plus, I love the mother, Violet. Elegant, but sassy.

I wanted a nice light read to recover after Oathbringer and heard tons of great things about the Bridgerton books. I started off thinking I'd found another series to devour like the Hathaways but ugh, I was totally disgusted by both leads the latter half of the novel. The conflict was distasteful enough that I had no wish for their reconciliation and HEA. Ick.

I love books that make me laugh, and especially the first half of this book had me chuckling and reading funny bits out loud to my family. What a great introduction to the Bridgerton tribe! And of course a charming love story.💞

PS Sorry secret Santa, I didn't realize this was on my tbr when I took it out from the library. But I'd be very happy rereading it!

The first of a series featuring the Bridgerton siblings. Each chapter started with a blurb from the mysterious Lady Whistledown's gossip sheet. I hope one of fhe books in the series reveals her identity. Enjoyed this enough to read the next book, but I may finally be overdosing on romance novels.

I am excited to be revisiting these Bridgertons!! I listened to the #audiobook this time and Rosalyn Landor did a fantastic job! Looking forward to the second book. -Though personally if this was my first time reading I would save all the 2nd epilogues till the end of all the main books in the series.. cause I would rather not see who has ended up with whom yet.. until its their story :)

🌟🌟🌟🌟 I adored this book. I had a false start a few months ago when I first started but never got past the first chapter. I am so glad I picked it back up! The banter between the hero and heroine was suberb. I'll admit I did prefer the first half of the book to the second half. Highly recommend!

Julia Quinn - The Duke and I ****

Started the Bridgertons and finished the first book. It was a good read, certainly entertaining. I liked both Simon and Daphne and their story was interesting enough. But not THAT special. After so many readers telling me how great this series it, I was a tad underwhelmed. I'll continue reading, see if it picks up!

#romantsy

Adena Colin's story and Francesca's are my favorite. Totally different books. Colin's is funny and lighthearted, Francesca's is gorgeously heartbreaking. 3y
Tacabo I loved the series, but I really wanted to comment on these covers - they're beautiful! The artwork suits the books so well! 3y
AnjaPeerdeman @Tacabo I know! They're the British version. All my Julia Quinn books have covers like that. 3y
