The Viscount Who Loved Me [TV Tie-In]
The Viscount Who Loved Me [TV Tie-In]: Bridgerton | Julia Quinn
170 posts | 293 read | 3 reading | 29 to read
# 1 New York Times Bestseller The inspiration for season two of BRIDGERTON, a series created by Shondaland for Netflix, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn: the story of Anthony Bridgerton in the second of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family. ANTHONY'S STORY This time the gossip columnists have it wrong. London's most elusive bachelor Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry--he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield--the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams... Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands--and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate's determined to protect her sister--but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...

I knew I was going to love this book because I was obsessed with Anthony since I saw season 2.
Love both Anthony and Kate, they were such a fun couple to see.

“Was it possible to fall in love with the same man over and over again, every single day?”

quote
roronoazoro

“It was simple. His world was Kate. If he denied that, he might as well stop breathing right now.”

quote
roronoazoro

“He cared about her. He cared about her far too much. He craved her company when they were apart, and he dreamed about her at night, even as he held her in his arms.

He wasn‘t ready to call it love, but it terrified him all the same.

And whatever it was that burned between them, he didn‘t want it to end.”

quote
roronoazoro

“You‘re perfect.”

“Right here, right now, in this moment, in this garden, you‘re perfect.”

quote
roronoazoro

“It was that spark. That damnable spark that never seemed to dim between them. That awful prickle of awareness that burned every time she entered a room, or took a breath, or pointed a toe. That sinking feeling that he could, if he let himself, love her.

Which was the one thing he feared most.

Perhaps the only thing he feared at all.”

quote
roronoazoro

“And then there was Kate Sheffield. The bane of his existence. And the object of his desires. All at once.”

quote
roronoazoro

“A man with charm is an entertaining thing, and a man with looks is, of course, a sight to behold, but a man with honor—ah, he is the one, dear reader, to which the young ladies should flock.”

quote
roronoazoro

“he craved her good opinion.
Anthony couldn‘t remember the last time someone‘s regard had meant so much, and frankly, it was humbling.”

quote
roronoazoro

“Clearly, even if he hadn‘t been able to spare a glance for Edwina, he‘d been sparing plenty for Kate.

That ought to have been disturbing.

He glanced back over at her again.”

quote
roronoazoro

“It occurred to Anthony that when she wasn‟t arguing with him, Kate Sheffield might bloody well be the finest woman in England.”

quote
roronoazoro

“You, madam, are a menace to society.”

This was somehow so much better than the first book!

I liked characters and secondary characters made it even better.

This had nice historical athmosphere that was missing in the first book. Still not strongest aspect of these books but works well enough.

It seems like characters in these books always have some silly trauma that doesn't feel believable/realistic.

This was a solid second book in the Bridgerton series. I enjoyed reading about Anthony and him falling in love with a girl he didn't think he would fall in love with. I mean it's very obvious that if the main character says "I will never let myself fall in love" he will 100% absolutely fall in love with the exact person he said he wouldn't. Dumby. Overall I really liked this and thought it was super sweet and spicy and scandalous.

I read this after watching the latest season of Bridgerton and, much as I liked the show, the book is better. I didn‘t feel that way about season one and the first book. I enjoy these characters and the dynamics between them. The book is fun and a diversion, which is what I think it‘s meant to be. The series is an alternate reality, and that‘s okay. I‘ve read reviews that intimate that you must take one side or the other. I disagree 👇

Lynnsoprano I think you can enjoy both, realizing that they are two different methods of telling a story, and different views as to what‘s important in the story. I also thought it was appropriate to include a picture of a bee that I took on this morning‘s walk-only because it intrigued me 😄 5mo
CoffeeNBooks Great picture! 5mo
KristiAhlers I guess I need to watch this show! And I need to re-read these books. I read them all years ago when they first came out. Julia Quinn has always been an automatic buy for me. 5mo

Sitting on the patio with my Kindle and Kleenex. I‘m going to get a lot of reading time this week, because I‘m isolating with Covid. Pretty sure I‘m over the worst of it, my biggest worry is trying to keep hubby from getting it. But I‘m going to try to take advantage of the time.

I loved everything about Season 1 of Bridgerton except for Daphne. Because of this I decided to skip Book 1.

It's amazing how this pretty standard Romance novel is transformed into the Blockbuster show. But that being said I actually liked the Bee story from the book better and how Love Triangle is pretty much non existent.

Will definitely read the next book that Seasons 3 is based on.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Also it was fun to discuss with some of the members of #VampireBookClub. Find it hilarious that half of us are - Yes Please 🙋🏻‍♀️and other half are Hell No! 🤢 5mo
rubyslippersreads I think they‘re going to skip book 3 for now and do Colin and Penelope‘s story for Season 3. 5mo

This one was better! I lowered my expectations and it was an entertaining read. Worldbuilding got better, and while I still don‘t quite buy the regency era setting, at least it didn‘t feel like Wild West (almost). While I see why some people were upset with changes made in the show, but I prefer the way it turned out on the screen. I don‘t reject the possibility of continuing reading the series, just a bit later maybe.

I was meh about 1st season, but the 2nd one was awesome! Are books any good?

Tianarose I binged the books after the first season. There are changes but for the most part they are not life changing. Except lady whistledown! The show spoils the reveal out of sequence to the books. (Earlier) 6mo
BrittanyReads I truly enjoyed book 2 much more than the show! It's quite different. 6mo
Karons1 The books 📚 are pure delightful escapism I inhaled them all in the second lockdown and so glad I did ! Love the tv 📺 show but oh my your in for a treat with the book 📚 series - 100% better , books 2 , 3 and 4 , 6, 7 were my favs . Happy 😃 reading 📖 6mo

Just finished watching Bridgerton season 2, and it took me a bit to get into it, but I ended up loving it. Kate and Anthony's pining is fantastic, and they're both absolutely gorgeous! I'm probably gonna watch it again in a couple of days. 😅😅🙈🙈📚📚 #bridgerton #bridgertonseason2 #booktoscreen

Planning to re read as slightly disappointed 😔 in the tv adaptation, #bridgerton ; books 2,3 & 4 were my favs 😍although lovely colin went abit weird with our gorgeous pen! Anyway here‘s your Bridgerton name ; add Lord or lady - your 2nd name -last drink you had plus add ton - of -start of name of street you live on and add shire ; mine is Lady Anne Coffeeton of Loddingshire 🤣🤣 little things #whatsyourbridgertonname

MeganAnn I was a little disappointed in season 2 as well. I loved Kate & Antony in the second book — the tv series didn't quite do them justice. But I did enjoy the way they brought pieces of the other later stories forward. My Bridgerton name is nearly the same as yours! Lady Ann Coffeeton of Fourthshire 😂 6mo
bthegood Maybe we are all related - @MeganAnn and @Karons1 - Lady Marcella Coffeeton of Rosewoodshire - 🙂 6mo
Karons1 @bthegood @MeganAnn brilliant 🤩 😂 (edited) 6mo
Karons1 @MeganAnn totally agree loved 🥰 books 2 & 3 my favs ; shame they bought Penelope‘s secret 🤫 out so quickly ! Prefer how it‘s done at the ball in book 4. The chemistry was much better in the book ; let‘s hope they get book 3 season 3 spot on !! Maybe we should write ✍️ to them and suggest to help with the screenplay / script ! I love how Benedict meets his lady in book 3 so praying they keep the masked ball scene in ! 6mo

Completely smitten with the new season of Bridgerton - am not a binger but watched it in a few days with my husband (who surprisingly and wonderfully loves the show). And am treating myself to a rewatch which I NEVER do 😅 Their chemistry is just great and I love Jonathan Bailey. I read the book long enough ago to not notice too many of the differences and just appreciate the overall justice this series is doing to the romance genre ❤️

Dragon Totally agree- great chemistry 💚🐉 6mo

It was sad the way Kate thought so little of herself because of how society kept comparing her to her sister Edwina.

Just finished binge watching season 2...I am not going to spoil it for those that have not watched it yet but I do have mix feelings about it. Don't get me wrong, I did like it. I was hooked from the very first episode. However, I do wish there was more romance to the story, especially when I enjoyed the book so much.
Did you watch it? What did you think?

Chrissyreadit Im watching it now- I love Eloise and Penelope the best- so am probably going to read the series so I can find out what happens to them. I really am enjoying the show though I wish it was a little more romantic. 6mo
wanderinglynn @Chrissyreadit I‘ve read the book & enjoyed it. Based on the WaPo article, I‘m guessing I‘m still going to love the book more. Besides even though Jonathon Bailey (Anthony) is cute, he‘s no Regé-Jean Page. ? 6mo
Chrissyreadit @wanderinglynn for real 🔥🔥🔥🔥 6mo
Christy2318 I loved the books & I loved the show. For me, the slow burn of the romance this season worked. Season 2 deviates from the books a lot. I like tv Eloise & her storyline much better but preferred how the books handle the Lady Whistledown storyline. 6mo
vonnie862 @julesG "Middle book syndrome" ? 6mo
vonnie862 @Christy2318 I liked the slow burn too but I felt that the other side stories kind of took away from it towards the end. 6mo
vonnie862 @Chrissyreadit I feel yah! I've been reading the books with the seasons. I'll be reading the third book soon and I might jump into the 4th one sooner to quench my curiosity. 6mo

Spent yesterday binge watching Netflix Season 2 of Bridgerton. I‘m considering a re-read of book 2 as I‘m pretty sure there were changes. Here‘s a few screenshots of Anthony and Kate 💚🐉

I told myself I wouldn‘t binge watch & would go to sleep at a reasonable hour. I lied & my eyeballs hurt. There were a number of liberties taken from the original story but I generally liked them & thought they worked well in the overall story arc. I particularly like tv Eloise better than book Eloise. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dragon Agreed. Thumbs up for TV Eloise 6mo

I read the duke and I last year when Bridgerton was airing and I really liked it, but reading this one in advance of the new series I LOVED. i don‘t know if it‘s exactly a better book or if I‘ve just got more into romance than I was, but I was obsessed with this. Perfect balance of banter and yearning.
