    Description

    She was given two choices....

    Georgiana Bridgerton isn’t against the idea of marriage. She’d just thought she’d have some say in the matter. But with her reputation hanging by a thread after she’s abducted for her dowry, Georgie is given two options: live out her life as a spinster or marry the rogue who has ruined her life.

    Enter option number three...

    As the fourth son of an earl, Nicholas Rokesby is prepared to chart his own course. He has a life in Edinburgh, where he’s close to completing his medical studies, and he has no time - or interest - to find a wife. But when he discovers that Georgie Bridgerton - his literal girl next door - is facing ruin, he knows what he must do.

    A marriage of convenience...

    It might not have been the most romantic of proposals, but Nicholas never thought she’d say no. Georgie doesn’t want to be anyone’s sacrifice, and besides, they could never think of each other as anything more than childhood friends...or could they?

    But as they embark upon their unorthodox courtship they discover a new twist to the age-old rhyme. First comes scandal, then comes marriage. But after that comes love...

    Ok Julia

    Julia Quinn is hands down, next to Tessa Dare, my favorite Regency Romance author. However, THIS is not what is up. I love the idea of the story line but this is my least favorite of them all. She owes me another book... Just saying ...
    I truly hope she gets a nice check from this book because this was a definitely a pay the bills book! ... if I were an English Teacher this book would be exited into a short story. A lot of filler. Sort of a waste of a good plot as well. Julia you owe me!!!

    Does not disappoint

    Another great installment in a fantastic series. I only have to say that the road trip was a bit exhausting and could easily have been shortened especially regarding the cats. It went on a bit too long for pleasure. I also would’ve liked a bit more conflicts or climax for the couple to overcome to get to their happily ever after.It’s charming and witty and simply Julia Quinn. I did get tired of hearing about the cats on their trip. That did seem a bit exhausting. Also would have liked a bit more climax in the story before the happy ever ending.

    Dull

    I'm so disappointed in this book. It was well-written and well-performed, but it was boring. Nothing happened in this story, and there was no conflict to be found anywhere. When I reached the epilogue, I went back a couple of chapters to see if it had skipped a few, but it hadn't. it was rushed at the end, pretty much as soon as their feeling were established. I would've liked to have seen Georgie's interest grow into more than a mention here and there, because there seems to be more story in between the last chapter and the epilogue. I was tempted to return the book, but I love Quinn and Landor, so I'll take the loss and hope the next one is better.

    Boring!!

    I’ve read a few Julia Quinn books and this was by far the most boring. Not much of a story line. Everything was stretched out. Could have been a quarter the length and still would have covered the same information.

    Story missing. Not good Quinn.

    Disappointing book. Having enjoyed Quinn's earlier Bridgerton novels, I was expecting an engaging story, witty dialog, and laughter. This book was boring. Sorry that I pre-ordered. Narrator is good.

    Extremely disappointing

    After reading the first three books of this series, I was excited for this booking thinking it would be the concluding book of the series...meaning it would give more info of their family members and a look into Edmund and Voilet's story. This was barely a love story, or even a story. Weak characters, weak banter, weak, story line. Worst Julia Quinn book I've read so far (and I've read over 10 of her books)

    Quinn's Style But No Substance

    I so looked forward to this Bridgerton prequel. And Quinn delivered her inimitable style and writing quality. But there is really no story here. As much as I enjoyed the heroine's antics with her rascally cat, that wasn't enough to make up for the lack of real content. I admire Quinn's skill but there is no there there (as Gertrude Stein might have said). A tremendous and total disappointment. I'll be wary of her future books and certainly won't pre-order any of them.

    Loved it!

    I really enjoyed this book. It showed how these two people actually became true partners, in love and in life, which I have to say was really refreshing.

    Terrible

    I normally love Julia Quinn’s Bridgeton books;however, I was sadly disappointed in this one. She used an extraordinary amount of useless words to fill in space.
    The story was more boring than The Other Miss Bridgeton, which was really boring. Ms Landor was excellent as always, but even she couldn’t help this very forgettable book!

    Altes Sprichwort

    Hier wird gezeigt, daß alte Sprichwörter manchmal doch nicht nur leere Worte sind.
    Sehr hübsch erzählt, wie aus einer Sandkasten-Freundschaft eine Vernunftehe und dann so viel mehr wird.

    Rosalyn Landor schafft es wieder einmal, vom heulenden Hausmädchen bis zum pompösen schottischen Universitätsprofessor allen eine angemessene Stimme zu geben.

    Sehr empfehlenswert!
    P.S. Besonders vergnüglich sind die beiden altgedienten Butler bei der Bearbeitung eines ziemlich großen Problems

    What happened here?

    Okay, so first of all I need to say that I usually LOVE Julia Quinn’s books and that Rosalyn Landor always does a great job of reading them. This book was no exception, but… Julia Quinn seemed to have forgotten that even the strongest character building does not make up for the lack of a story.

    After finishing the book, I had a really hard time saying what it was about besides two people getting to know each other. And while I would like to say that the laughs I had about the cat (you will understand when you read it) made up for the lack of a story, I can't.

    All in all, this novel was an okay read and reading it didn’t manage to change my good opinion about Julia Quinn as an author, but I do hope that her next novel will be a bit more plot driven. Until then I’m simply gonna reread her other novels.
