21 posts | 26 read | 2 to read
She was in the wrong place... Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captains bed He found her at the wrong time... Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, hes stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very realand his duty to the Crown means he's stuck with her. Can two wrongs make the most perfect right? When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandalthough Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrews secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart?

Poppy is an incredible and smart woman who never been out of town and her curiosity got her into trouble that might ruins her reputation. She has been kidnapped by a pirates! But instead of having a terrifying voyage, she‘s been treated kindly by a charming Captain Andrew and his men. Nothing slavery and brutal but alluring, brilliant and witty. Truly delightful and makes you want more of the lovey dovey.

Still a wonderful story. But, I do think that Ms Quinn should stop writing more stories about Bridgertons. She should try writing about other families...
And if possible, don't include any Bridgertons. You do get tired reading about them. As most of the stories will turn out the same...

Quinn delivered on the smart and funny dialogue which Poppy and Andrew were perfect for as they went against each other and the dialogue just pinged ponged back n forth and it made for a fun read.⁠

A solid ⭐⭐⭐ read⁠

Finished this this morning before work. Such a charming story! I hadn‘t realized it was the 3rd in a trilogy so I‘ve since acquired the other 2. I really enjoyed Poppy and Andrew‘s story and cant wait to meet the other Bridgertons and Rokesby‘s. #newyearwhodis

ElenaBaer One of the best parts of this series and truly any HEA romance is that you really can read them in any order. I loved the tagged book from the first series. (Which chronologically comes after these three books.) 11mo
CocoReads Yes, I told my sister yesterday that I didn‘t feel any lack of backstory starting from this one. I want to read them all but I don‘t feel I missed anything by starting here. 11mo

The nice thing about Sunday‘s at work is that I was able to do some studying AND reading for fun. Plus, we didn‘t have a lot of patients today so after the morning fill, it was a pretty calm day.

ashsbookmarks I read the first book in the series a long time ago but I want to pick them all up and read 11mo
CocoReads I didn‘t even know it was the third one until I was sucked in. Last week I bought the first 2. 🤣 11mo

#TGIF home from work, work pajamas (scrubs) are off and regular pajamas are on. Dinner in the crockpot (roast and potatoes) smells amazing. I do have to work Sunday but my plans otherwise are the tagged book, TA by Jamie Begley and Zero Tolerance by Autumn Jones Lake. Not sure I‘ll get through all three but I‘m going to give it my best shot! @CoverToCoverGirl

I moved into my first house! It‘s been incredibly exciting but also a bit stressful at the same time... so I slowed down this week and finally got back to reading a bit! I‘ve been sucked in to this book and had the hardest time putting it down for stuff like work, showering, making food... 😂. I loved it. This was the fluffy happy read I needed.

I really loved this. And it‘s been a long time since I loved a Julia Quinn novel. The way these two fell in love was so perfect. They were both fiercely intelligent and that was never compromised for the sake of the plot.

One of my favorites of the recent Julia Quinns, this is a sparkling story with witty banter on the high seas. How often does a society lady get kidnapped by a gentleman privateer? And then proceed to bicker across the ocean? It's the characters and dialogue that make this so good.

4.5⭐

robinb I‘m not participating in that one this year, but I have participated in Sarah MacLean‘s OSRBC swap before. Fun!!! I have this book but haven‘t read it yet. ❤️ Quinn! 13mo
JoRead @robinb I'm part of that group too! I didn't see any posts for an exchange this year (or maybe I did and I forgot 😅) 13mo
robinb @JoRead I think there was one but the post was fairly early. I missed it too but wasn‘t planning to do it anyway. I‘m not on FB as much as I used to be. 13mo

I feel like I've read this one before... I enjoy the humor in Julia Quinn's writing. The ending felt a little rushed.

I wavered between pick and so-so, but ended up with pick. I wanted so much to love this book, but this particular series has just not been able to capture my attention. That said, I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would!

This made me think of one of my favorite Buffy episodes. Or maybe I am always just thinking about “Lie to Me”. Who knows.
