Francesca Bridgerton is definitely the most private of the Bridgerton siblings, preferring to keep the quieter company of her husband John, the Earl of Kilmartin, and John’s best friend/cousin Michael. When John is prematurely struck down, Francesca becomes a widow before she is even able to produce an heir to the Earldom - thus, the title passes to Michael, who has a secret that is eating him alive with guilt: He has been in love with Francesca since the day he saw her, at her and John’s wedding. Overcome with emotion, Michael escapes to India and avoids Francesca for several years, until they finally cross paths again in London, where Francesca has arrived to find herself a new husband. Will Michael finally declare his long-repressed feelings? Don’t skip Quinn’s spiciest novel yet! - MeganMercurial May Staff Picks
A New York Times Bestseller
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Francesca Bridgerton, in the sixth of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.
In every life there is a turning point. A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one’s life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London’s most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.
After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.
But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .
