Publisher's Summary

The second book in the beloved and globally best-selling Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. Welcome to Anthony's story....

1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better.... 

Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814

Anthony Bridgerton needs a wife. Having spent his 20s in a rakish pursuit of pleasure (whilst taking care to ensure the financial security of his mother and seven younger siblings and mother) he knows it's high time he settled down and ensured the continuation of the Bridgerton line. Edwina Sheffield is considered the most beautiful debutante of the current season. She is also sweet, innocent and eminently biddable - Anthony is sure she'll make a perfectly acceptable wife and vows to make her his.

The only obstacle in his way is Edwina's older sister, Kate. Kate is determined to do all she can to allow her sister the chance to marry for love rather than convenience. And the roguish viscount is beginning to think he may have met his match in Kate's keen wit and sharp tongue. Until, that is, he makes the mistake of kissing her....

Thoroughly romantic and a bit naughty

I am a man and I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. However, I listened to it when I feel the need to escape from the drudgery of life and family problems. What a great distraction! This is not for machos who frowned the romantic side of life. It is well written with a profound insight into childhood traumas and how they can affect the rest of our lives if left unresolved. Loved it.

Georgette Heyer this ain't

I don't get the 5star reviews. Plodding, dull, predictable,poorly written and sex scenes which added nothing. The narration was irritating and I hated the narrator's interpretation particularly of the male characters. I love to curl up with a Georgette Heyer on a winter evening, for a little Recency romance, and there are some great Audible versions as well , but Julia Quinn is nowhere near as witty or as deft an author as Heyer although I suspect that that's what she wanted only racier. But to use one of her more jarring phrases it felt like she just "fell on her "bum".

Please get a different narrator!

I have read one of these before and enjoyed it for what it is. I was really disappointed with the audio book version. The narrator is absolutely awful. I'll stick to kindle versions in future

Brilliant and Witty

Rosalyn Landor is one of my favourite narrators.
She is brilliant in bringing the characters to life.
You know when it's a good book when you don't want it to end.

My favorite among the Bridgertons

Let us not kid ourselves we are not reading The Bridgetons in the search of the most impecable piece of literature. Nevertheless these series have the best recipe for a nice comfy holiday read.
"The Viscount who loved me" is my favorite. It is sweet, funny, romantic and angsty. But mostly is feels the most bubbly from all of novels of the series I had the chance to read. If they will decide to turn this novel into a second season of The Bridgetons adaptation I will be incredibly happy.

Narrated poorly

The second story is in many respects similar to the first in plot. Bit disappointed as I thought it might be a little different. Nevertheless I still listened to all of it. It is narrated very poorly. The narrator impersonates the male voices and frankly it’s laughable and not in a good way!! All this said I’m still going to listen to the third story!!

Dull bodice ripper

So disappointing, Unevenful & predictable bodice ripper. This is not Jane Austen, do yourself a favour and read Pride & Prejudice

Funny and a good listen

Having watched the first season if the Netflix Bridgerton (and having listened to book 4), I purchased this one, book 2. I listened to the whole book in two sittings, and enjoyed it thoroughly. It made me laugh aloud in places too.
I recommend it if you like the genre.

meh, boring and predictable with lots of mistakes

I listened to this because of the reviews of the TV series that I can't watch due to subscription streaming. I can only hope it's better and more accurate than the book!
once the hero says he hates a girl you know the really loves her, the same with the heroine. the rest is just waiting for the inevitable.
for a character that is afraid of storms that make a big part of the plot, you'd have thought the author would research and get the details factually corrrct? I wasn't aware thunder came before lightening...??!!!!
flowery and fancy writing attempting - and failing - to be in the style of Jane Austin. narrator was SO annoying with the nasal false cut glass accent.
graphic like a kills and boon were at least a pleasant distraction 😆

Eye rolling read

I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes at the story, it is so predictable and so cringe-worthy at times, but I still had to finish it! The narration was irritating too, especially the male voices, but will I listen to another, probably!

Guilty pleasure

The Bridgerton series overall is my guilty pleasure as I could never have imagined that I would enjoy a set or romantic historical novels this much.

The “Viscount who loved me” is my favorite book in the Bridgerton series! Something about how how the story simply makes me want to keep listening to it over and over again. It’s beautiful, funny, sweet and somehow feel real at the same time. I really enjoy the combination of Julia Quinn’s storytelling and the lovely narration of Rosalyn Landor, she really brings all the Bridgerton book series to life with her amazing narration.

Choose Wisely

I struggled with the unimaginative story, flat characters and overall predictability. Regency Mills and Boon. Perhaps more interesting in a TV format, the book lacked a lot.

The Americanisms are driving me insane!

For example "Off of" instead of using simply "Off"! Drives me nuts.
Ending sentences with "Right?"
Who spoke like that in Regency England? NO ONE, I'll bet!

Good cure for insomnia

I liked the first Bridgerton novel but this was terrible. The story started off interesting but turned into the most unconvincing romance. The performance was weak as well, the lead man in particular never escaped melodrama. I never found him even slightly convincing. ugh, this was not worth the time.

I loved this book in the series the most so far and I have read 5. I actually went back and reread this a second time. Kate is one of my favourite characters and she is so well written. Love this series!

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this book so much more than the first. The characters were more believable and a lot more fun. I found myself laughing and smiling through many of the chapters. Well done and I will continue on to Brigit and Journey
