Product Description

From Amazon

Relentlessly pursued by match-making mamas and their charges, Simon Bassett, the handsome Duke of Hastings, has grown tired of the societal chase. Tired too is the lovely Daphne Bridgerton, whose matrimonially minded mother is set on finding her daughter the perfect husband. Neither Simon nor Daphne is happy with this annoying state of affairs and both would give anything for a little peace and quiet. Their mutual wish for a respite from the town's marriage mart leads to a pretend engagement--a scheme that is threatened with exposure by Daphne's suspicious older brother, who happens to know Simon's way with women very well. The two never anticipated that a mutual attraction would lead to the very thing they set out to avoid--a wedding. But Simon fears that his painful past may keep him from being able to truly love anyone. And though Daphne cares for him deeply, she won't settle for anything less than his heart.

The Duke and I is rich with author Julia Quinn's trademark humour and engaging dialogue. Beneath the Regency charm of this novel, however, dwells an insightful exploration of the impact of childhood trauma and the healing power of love. Quinn just keeps getting better and better, a fact that's sure to delight readers. --Lois Faye Dyer


"Ms. Quinn writes delightfully fast-paced, funny, sparkling, and bright romance. " -- -- Romantic Times

"Quinn will give you pleasant dreams." -- --- Romantic Times

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book I have read by Julia Quinn and I loved it! The characters were fun and I hoped it would never end, but it did. Luckily this book is only the beginning of a series called the Bridgerton Series. This one is about Daphne, the oldest daughter of the family. Talk about humor and even some serious parts that were heartwarming. The type of people you wish you knew.
~Daphne Bridgerton, the daughter of a Viscount and the eldest daughter of eight children is tired of the social whirl and the ton's endless matchmaking going on. She wants love, love like her mother and father shared. She will settle for no less. Even if she has to pretend to be courted by a Duke that has NO intention of EVER getting married!
The Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset, has lived a life of trying to overcome his secret problem that has caused his father to pretty much abandon him as a son. When his father dies, Simon feels no grief, just relief. But the scars haven't healed from a horrible childhood. His revenge on it, to never marry and let the illustrious title of Dukedom die a quiet death when he does. The plan...pretend to court his best friend Anthony Bridgerton's sister in order to keep the ton's matchmakers at bay and out of his hair until he can come up with a better idea. What he realizes is that Daphne is not some silly girl he can play 'pretend' with.
The two get caught up in their own lie and they find themselves wishing it were all real. Then when an incident causes Daphne's eldest brother and Simon's best friend for so many years to cry foul, a friendship is tested and the 'game' has come to an end. Will Simon, the new Duke of Hastings learn to forget his father's evil presense in his memory?

The first installment of the Bridgerton series focuses on the eldest Bridgerton sister, Daphne. This is an emotional joy ride in how Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings found true love with Daphne Bridgerton. Simon grew up motherless, rejected by his father, and with a speech impediment to boot --he stutters. He overcame this impediment but it still comes out especially in times of great emotional strain.
Simon met Daphne when he rescued her from an obssessed suitor. The Duke just came back from living abroad and found out that Mamas with marriageable daughters kept hounding him; whereas Daphne needed to raise her marriage desirability among the eligible bachelors of the ton. So they struck a deal, they will announce a sham engagement. Of course, once the proposals started pouring in for Daphne, Simon thought that the sham engagement must be turned into a real one. And before anyone could say "Duke of Hastings," they were married.
Daphne found bliss and happiness in Simon's arms, and wants to start a family; but Simon's painful childhood is blocking the way to their total happiness.
"The Duke and I" started off lighthearted but it has moments where you truly feel for the characters. I like Daphne's strength and her determination to pull Simon out of the dark remembrance of his past.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I do like reading Romances but I've often found that many of them sound the same. Certainly the plots change and the character names and circumstances change -- but the essential dialogue and tensions often replicate themselves in book after book. This gives many Romance novels a homogenous, artificial flavor which I don't like and I feel cheated when I read books like this because I feel as if the author has underestimated the intelligence of her/his reader. How refreshing it was then to read Julia Quinn's, "The Duke and I." This was my first (certainly not my last) Julia Quinn book and I was highly impressed with her ability to create characters who don't always speak and behave the way you expect them too. Daphne and Simon's relationship is believable, they seem like "real" people and their problems were fairly ordinary and not overly dramatic or contrived. The secondary characters each deserve (and will probably get) a book of their own. Quinn also had a knack for making me laugh -- the humor was not forced or too cutesy, just well written. Although this book is set in the Regency period, it is not your "traditional" Regency as it does contain some frank sex scenes and the characters often act with a more modern sensibility than one might expect. In any case, this was a great read and I am eagerly looking forward to reading Quinn's other novels.

This book was so good i couldnt put it down. This is my second book from Julia Quinn and she's now one of my favorite authors along with Johanna Lindsey, Judith McNaught and Josie Litton. It's so easy to love the hero of this story unlike many romance novels where the hero is dark and brooding and doesnt seem to care if he hurts the heroine feelings. Simon does care and shows it and he's so endearing because of he's flaws. And Daphne is so charming because of her outspoken maners and her take charge attitude. I definetly recommend this book!!

This wasn't the first Bridgerton book I read but as soon as I'd read the other one, I knew I had to read them ALL. So I began in chronological order. The Duke and I is absolutely marvellous. Simon is both funny and endearing and of course he's very much a Duke, you cant miss that. Daphne Bridgerton is my second favourite Bridgerton sister, the favourite being Hyacinth. Daphne is smart and the encounters between her and Simon are hilarious and romantic at the same time, but there's Julia Quinn for you. She pulls this off in every book! Love this writer.
Simon's dark childhood overshadows his life. He doesn't want to marry. Yet, he cannot resist Daphne. The shadows linger and Daphne must fight them alongside Simon. However, as circumstances would have it, the Duke must choose between being honourable and being honourable. What's the choice? Read the book and find out. Although the books can be read separately, it's so much more satisfying reading them in order. Start with this. You'll love the Bridgertons.
