The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn
Happy February!! In honor of Valentine’s Day we are going full on romance with this month’s steamy selection.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve binged the Bridgerton series on Netflix and maybe read Julia Quinn’s first novel, The Duke and I. If so, you HAVE to join us this month and read book 2 in the Bridgerton series: The Viscount Who Loved Me. This is oldest brother Anthony’s love story and you will love it!
If you aren’t familiar with the Bridgerton family, you might want to read book 1 or watch the show to get caught up on what to expect. Although each book stands alone, it’s fun to follow some of the details from book to book. (PS…this book was originally published 20 years ago so check your mom’s bookshelf, she may have a copy! ;))
As the oldest sibling and heir to his family’s estate, Anthony Bridgerton has decided it is time to settle down and find a wife. And he has his eyes set on one woman in particular. But her older sister Kate proves to be an obstacle. Kate sees Anthony as the ultimate rogue and is determined to protect her sweet , naive sister from his advances. Until, she herself can’t stop thinking about the man she supposedly despises.

2020 was my year of regency romance–I read several books in this genre but the Bridgertons were my favorite of the bunch! (I may or may not be on book 4.) The Viscount Who Loved Me is my favorite in the series so far–I loved Anthony’s story and think you will too!
I can’t be the only one that fell in love with the whole Bridgerton crew after binging the series! You’re going to love getting to read more about some of our favorite characters this February with this fun and romantic read!
About the Author
#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don’t read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand fashion, appearing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code. Ms. Quinn is one of only sixteen members of Romance Writers of America’s Hall of Fame, her books have been translated into 29 languages, and she currently lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.
