Product Description

From Amazon

Setting: Regency England

Sensuality: 7

Penelope Featherington fell madly, hopelessly in love with Colin Bridgerton two days before her 16th birthday. Unfortunately, Colin has always seen Penelope as the plump, shy best friend of his younger sister. By the time Penelope is 28 and a seasoned member of the English ton, she's accepted that her love for Colin is destined to remain unrequited and she shall be a spinster forever. Fate, however, has other plans. When Lady Whistledown's Society Papers announce that Colin has returned from his nearly nonstop travels, Penelope is blissfully unaware that her life is about to change dramatically. Colin is equally unaware of the turn his life is about to take. He's not surprised that his beloved mother is determined to marry him off, but he's rather astonished to find himself inexplicably drawn to Penelope. Her dry wit and intelligent mind are delightful, and Colin soon finds himself joining forces with her to deflect his matchmaking mama's good intentions. Together, the two will thwart their mothers' iron wills, face the formidable Lady Danbury, confront the gossips of London society, and resolve the lovely dilemma of falling in love. And, oh yes, there is that matter of the true identity of Lady Whistledown. Will the twosome unmask the elusive journalist? Or will their efforts be doomed to failure like so many others' before?

Romancing Mr. Bridgerton continues author Julia Quinn's wildly popular series of Regency historicals featuring the Bridgerton family, The Duke and I, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and An Offer from a Gentleman. True, the novel possesses all that we've come to expect from Quinn, including deft plotting, witty repartee, a faultless Regency setting, and expert characterization. But perhaps the book's most pleasing facet is Quinn's quietly nuanced handling of the hero's and the heroine's internal growth, which is furthered by their blooming relationship. They're two strong individuals made stronger by their bond. Now that's love. --Lois Faye Dyer

Perhaps Penelope Featherington is the ancestor of the loser-heroine who finally got the best of the bunch! Sure, Anthony and Benedict Bridgerton are both handsome, charismatic, rich and gorgeous but the best of the Bridgerton men is Colin. Why? He has a very good sense of humor, totally cool and totally clueless that his one match in all the world is just the one person he never thought he would want to marry: his sister's best friend Penelope Featherington. Penelope started out as an awkward teenager who is used to being a wallflower, who is usually rescued by the Bridgerton brothers from embarrassment in all the balls, and who secretly loves Colin Bridgerton.
Colin might be clueless in how Penelope felt about him and how he felt for her but his feelings developed in a realistic way. He came to appreciate Penelope not only for her looks but also for her intellect, her wit, her personality --now how many men in this lifetime still has this trait? "Romancing Mr. Bridgerton" is a must read for people who still believe that love is not only skin deep.

Colin Bridgerton is without a doubt, THE most charming man in all of London. With one look at his devilish grin or his beautiful green eyes, the women fall at his feet. And with his glib mouth, he can get out of almost anything. Until one day, speaking out of frustration, he claims that he will never marry Penelope Featherington, in PUBLIC! What's even worse is that Penelope heard!
Now years later, after having travelled extensively throughout Europe, the irresistable Mr. Bridgerton is back in London for the season, at the age of 33, while Penelope has become a spinster at the 28.
But somehow, things aren't the same. When Colin looks at Penelope, he's struck by how big her eyes are and what a dreamy shade of brown they appear to be and how voluptous her body is. Not to mention how intelligent and funny and witty and kind she is. All in all, he's coming to realize what an amazing woman she truly is...
Penelope, on the other hand, has known how amazing Colin was since 2 days before her 16th birthday. And she is surprised that he would even express such interest in her, let alone ask for her hand in marriage! But Colin knows that Penelope is the woman for him, had been the woman all those years when he had failed to give her a second glance and only danced with her out of pity. And now he's determined to make up all those years of blindness.
The mysterious identity of Lady Whistledown is revealed here, even though I think that any avid reader of the Bridgerton series would have figured it out by the second book.
It's a pleasure to read.

This is my second Julia Quinn book, and my obssession to her writing is growing immensely. In this novel, she specifically writes as if you're watching a movie instead of reading a book. The "movie description" is not meant for the plot but for the dialogues themselves. Sometimes it's annoying and tiresome when writers explain everything, detail by detail, as if you're too stupid to figure things out for urself. That's what I like about Quinn; she's not worried if her readers might misunderstand some context on her writings. "Romancing Mister Bridgerton" is not the best in the series(I'm assuming for this is just my second quinn, as metioned b4) but it was fun to read. When I read a second novel from the same author, I usually expect repetitions or patterns on the plots. I was surprised and pleased that it is not so in Quinn's case. In this novel, she writes about the kind of love that "starts with a smile, a word a teasing glance" instead of the "thunderbolt-from-the-sky" type on "An Offer from a Gentleman." I find myself engrossed on every chapters and (shockingly) on the emotional scenes(I used to have a neutral facade when trying to read those kind of scenes on romance novels because they're so predictable), but Quinn had changed that. She also doesn't end the novel with a make-up chapter or a marriage. Here, she poured a part of herself that is a writer. Colin and Penelope had learned that each of them has a talent for writing. It made me think of the author herself, as I read the part where they are discussing one's joy when he/she find the exact words for their feelings or descriptions for their surroundings. Of course after good things, there's always a bad thing, even a small one.Read more ›

Ahh, Penelope and her beloved Colin. Everyone knew, of course, after seeing them in An Offer From a Gentleman, that these two were destined for each other. And the story of how they come together is simply the sweetest, most heartwarming romance I've read in a long time.
Penelope was pushed into society at a very early and awkward age, looking ill-favored in the hideous gowns her mother picked out for her. After the first few years of baby fat and clothes that made her look like an "over-ripe citrus fruit", she's a bit scarred by the ton's callous treatment of her, yet she never loses her wry humor over the silliness of it all. After a time, she becomes a certifiable spinster, and, left to her own devices, she remains a wallflower still, but a rather more elegant and dignified wallflower nonetheless.
All this time, Colin has been abroad, looking for adventure and a purpose in life but not truly finding it. The story kicks up when he returns to London from a trip to Cyprus, and things start happening that make him realize that what he's been seeking was right under his nose the whole time. Our favorite wallflower (that's Penelope) first begins to see herself differently when Lady Danbury prompts a little bit of self-confidence into her. Then Penelope discovers Colin's journal. Then comes speculation over Lady Whistledown's identity. As Colin and Penelope are thrown together over these situations, he discovers that she, of all people, understands him and his desire for a purpose in life. Soon, her opinions come to matter more and more to him, and he begins to want more than the casual friendship they've had since, like, forever. As for Penelope, the discovery of previously unseen aspects of Colin's character changes her love from an ideal into something more profound and real.
