Product Description

From Amazon

Wise, lovely and kind, Kate Sheffield is determined that her beautiful half-sister, Edwina, marry a reputable man in The Viscount Who loved Me. Unfortunately for Kate, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton--London's most eligible bachelor and a notorious rake to boot--sets his sights on Edwina, and what the viscount wants, the viscount gets. Only this time, Anthony must win the elder sister's approval before he may charm the young beauty into marriage.

Hardly a problem for the impossibly handsome viscount, that is until the determined Kate, whose deep, dark eyes and lush mouth send his senses racing, presents a challenge that Anthony cannot refuse. Worse yet, Kate's response to his playful advances only confirms the ardent attraction that both seem desperate to deny. Anthony is faced with a dilemma. On the one hand, the perfectly amiable Edwina, while on the other, the most stubborn, single-minded--yet confoundedly desirable--female ever to grace a London ballroom. Anthony's quandary comes to a fast and fateful conclusion when he and Kate are caught in an innocent but compromising position. There's no choice but to marry, a resolution that leaves both parties uneasy. For despite their growing feelings, each struggles with personal demons that may destroy any chance for true happiness.

It's no surprise that Julia Quinn's setting, characterisation, and plot are flawless. Add to this masterful mix deeper emotional issues offset by the trademark Quinn wit, and you truly do have romance at it's best. Nobody does Regency quite like the mighty Quinn. --Lois Faye Dyer

I really did not like this book. I am amazed at so many reviewers who thought this book was the best ever. It was sooooo formula driven. We have our hero, Anthony, who must marry before he is 39. He thinks he will die at 39, some family thing or another. He decides on the most beautiful girl in the ton, Kate. Kate, though, presents all her possible suitors to her homely, smart older sister, Edwina. Edwina, who rejects Anthony for her sister because he is a rake, ends up marrying him. Oh, they were compromised. Do romance authors feel that must amuse or sooth their readers by making plain women romantic leads? They are always too smart and clever and "pluky" for their own good. Why, in reality, would Edwina reject Anthony for her sister? He was the catch of the ton, good-looking, rich, a tad rakish, but every regency is happy to tell the reader that they make the best husbands. It was boring, boring, boring, boring...

Anthony, the viscount in the title, decides to marry and choses the beautiful Edwina. Her sister, Kate, is not pleased that her sister has come under the eye of the rake Anthony. Then...Anthony must have Kate, they are caught in a compromising position and must marry then...Anthony has this incredible fear of dying that interferes with his relationship with Kate. The man needed a shrink. I understand an author trying a new twist on really a very predictable story line. The dialogue between the two was not that interesting. Actually, the story bored me.

Now in London for the season, Kate is more determined to help her sister find a husband than to find one for herself. She doesn't believe than any man would find her attractive and demure enough to ever want her. But when she learns that Anthony Bridgerton has in mind to ask for her sister's hand, she's dead set against it. She believe Anthony is the worst sort of rake, and while love doesn't have to be present right off the bat, she doesn't want her sister in a loveless marriage where her heart would be broken by a faithless husband.

After her sister, Edwina, announces casually that she won't marry unless she has her sister's approval, things turn difficult. And Anthony will do what is necessary.

They find each other completely impossible to deal with, not wanting to like each other at all. Anthony believes that Edwina would be the perfect bride. Kate believes that Anthony is all wrong for her sister - and is determined to keep them separated at all costs.

What she didn't count on was her attraction to him, nor was she counting on falling in love with him. And that, to her, only makes matters worse, for Anthony refuses to fall in love, believing that he will die young and doesn't want to leave behind a family who loved him to no end, like his father before him. While Anthony was just eighteen when his father died at the age of thirty-four from an apparent bee sting, Anthony is terrified of the same thing - and of falling in love.

An incredibly beautiful story. I loved watching Kate and Anthony `duel' each other, words and actions. The way the author writes them with such conviction makes them very real with definite personalities that, while they don't like each other, they are similar in ways that warms a reader's heart.

The eldest Bridgerton brother, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton takes his responsibilities as head of the family quite seriously, but this did not stop him from enjoying life to the fullest, especially when it comes to women! This earned him a rakish reputation and when it came time for him to find a bride, his candidate was no other than Edwina Sheffield --smart, beautiful and the Season's Incomparable. But Anthony's attempts at courtship kept getting foiled by Edwina's older sister, Kate. Kate is not as beautiful as Edwina; but she is a woman of strong character, and stronger determination to protect her younger sister from the clutches of the rakish viscount. Anthony is equally determined to pursue Edwina, but to his dismay, Kate is the one who occupies his thoughts....and might also occupy his heart.
Another enjoyable addition to the Bridgerton stories, "The Viscount Who Loved Me" is great in the moments you expect but if you cound empathize with Anthony's fear of bees, you're in for another Quinn-tessential read!

Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, the prize catch of the London season, has remained a most determined bachelor, and consummate rake for years. Now that he's approaching thirty, and sure he will never outlive his father who died at the age of thirty-eight, Anthony decides to marry to provide the prerequisite heir. He's even chosen the lucky bride, Edwina Sheffield, a diamond of the first water this season. Edwina is just the type of woman he needs to marry, one who is beautiful, but the lack of chemistry will never lead to love. His only obstacle is she refuses to marry anyone not approved first by her half-sister, Kate Sheffield. Kate is not about to believe a rake such as Anthony would make a good husband for her sister, so she and Anthony continually end up in a battle of wits and wills.
But despite their antagonism, Anthony can't stop thinking of and desiring Kate, even to the point she invades his dreams with erotic images he's finding difficult to ignore. And after growing close enough to Anthony to realize he possesses many fine qualities, Kate knows she can no longer oppose the marriage to her sister. But secretly she can't help wanting him for herself.
This is one of the earlier novels in the lengthy Bridgerton family series, and it was my second book by this author. Overall this was a very enjoyable read. Ms. Quinn's wit and clever dialogue is what transforms this otherwise mundane storyline into a funny and unique tale. A couple of my favorite scenes would have to be the game of Pall Mall which was quite humorous, and one particularly memorable line uttered by a secondary character who found Anthony and Kate in the garden: "Lud, girl, he had his mouth on your bubbies, and we all saw it.
