Romancing Mister Bridgerton (#10 on our Top 100 Romances list)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 7, 2002 While reading Romancing Mister Bridgerton was great fun, reviewing it is no picnic. Especially since readers at AAR expect a nicely detailed first-half of the book plot summary with every review. Well, in this case, I just can't do it ...

When He Was Wicked (#45 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on July 13, 2004 Julia Quinn delivers another winner in the sixth addition to the Bridgerton series. Francesca and Michael’s story is interesting and definitely not typical. Michael Stirling meets Francesca Bridgerton and falls head over heels in lo ...

An Offer From a Gentleman (#84 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 8, 2001   I've said it before: I'm a sucker for Cinderella stories. An Offer From a Gentleman definitely takes its inspiration from Cinderella. Sophie Beckett is the bastard daughter of the Earl of Penwood. She knows it, and she lives ...

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

I’ve seen a lot of very mixed reactions to this book, which is the final novel in the author’s Smythe-Smith Quartet. All the negative comments I’ve seen concern the actions of the hero, the eponymous Sir Richard, who - it’s true - perpetrates a rather despicable deception on the heroine. But ...

The Sum of All Kisses

Having listened to – and enjoyed - the previous two books in the Smythe-Smith series, I’m inclined to think this is the best of them so far. Each one has been full of Ms Quinn’s trademark wit and excellent characterisation, but for me, The Sum of All Kisses had a little something extra in the ...

The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After

When I first chose this book to review, I did not realize that it was a collection of short stories about the Bridgerton family; I only initially noticed that it was another Julia Quinn book. When I discovered that it was not a novel, but eight “second epilogues” and a novella about matriarch Vi ...
