Publisher's Summary

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

But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry - he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield - the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams.

Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands - and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister - but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself.

    "Worth the long wait for this in audio!"

    This is the first of Julia Quinn's books I ever read and one of the first 'modern' historical romances I ever read about a decade or so ago, when I was just starting to read the genre. As a result, I have a bit of a soft spot for it, but that's not surprising, considering it's a terrific book.

    It's a classic enemies-to-lovers/compromised-into-marriage story and remains one of my favourite HRs and one of my favourites of the Bridgerton series (it's up there with "When He Was Wicked"). I admit that I haven't read it for some time, and I have forgotten bits, so this new audio was a fantastic reminder.

    The relationship between Anthony and Kate is brilliantly done - the sexual chemistry just sizzles between them right from the start, and the author does a superb job of showing both characters falling head-over-heels with each other while trying to maintain their outward animosity.

    I loved that Anthony is so family-oriented; there are so many dysfunctional families in romance that it's refreshing to find one that isn't. He's also, quite simply, sex-on-legs.

    Rosalyn Landor does an incredible job in the audio version. It's a given that she's technically superb - she's always spot on when it comes to things like differentiation and pacing - but where she scores over practically ever other narrator of historical romance is that she 'gets' it like no-one else. The way she brings the emotional content of the story to the fore so vividly always amazes me and I had a lump in my throat several times while listening to this one.

    I'm sure I don't need to convince any reader of HR that this is a fabulous book, or anyone who listens to romance audios regularly that the narration is outstanding.

    But I still had to shout about it, because it's just THAT good.

    "What a wonderful surprise"

    This was a good story a great follow up to the duke who loved me. It is the story about the oldest of the siblings. The story was funny and a page turner. Well worth the credit.

    "Good One!"
    What did you love best about The Viscount Who Loved Me?

    The interactions between Kate Sheffield and Lord Anthony Bridgerton.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When the wealthy Lord Anthony decides to take a wife he chooses Kate's sister; the beautiful, petite "Diamond" of the London season. Kate has set herself up as her sister's protector against the rakes and undesirables who are vying for the beauty's hand. She is especially against the charming Viscount Anthony Bridgerton reported to be the biggest rake in London. Their interchange is hilarious; she steps on his feet, and he steps on her hand.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    Everything, she is an excellent narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud on several occasions.


    Any additional comments?

    After the poor choices in entertainment I've made of late "The Viscount Who Loved Me" was a pleasant surprise.

    "Delightful"

    I particularly liked the way this love story didn't didn't include the angst of misalliance between the H, Antoni and h, Kate. Also, Kate, "menace to society" that H deems her, is plucky and never misses a beat in her retorts. I highly recommend listening to this this most pleasant and sexy romance.

    "Painfully predictable"

    I found this book to be irritatingly predictable and slow. I kept hoping it would deliver more but was disappointed. Finally gave up at the beginning of the hour long epilogue.
