Summary

The fourth book in Julia Quinn's globally best-selling Regency-set Bridgerton Family series, now the inspiration for the Netflix series Bridgerton created by Shondaland. Welcome to Colin and Penelope's long-awaited story....

Everyone knows that Colin Bridgerton is the most charming man in London. Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend's brother for...well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret, and fears she doesn't know him at all.

Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought of as nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can't seem to publish an edition without mentioning him. But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroad, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same - especially Penelope Featherington! The girl who was always simply there is suddenly the girl haunting his dreams. When he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide. Is she his biggest threat - or his promise of a happy ending?

Critic reviews

"Julia Quinn's Bridgerton books take all of the classic tropes we know and love...and gives them a thoroughly modern twist. I can't focus on anything else." (Stylist)

Again a joy to listen to....

After the disappointment of Book 3 I am delighted to report that Book 4 was much more enjoyable ....

again I noticed various repeats within the story ... which I find annoying and therefore I deduct one star ⭐️ from the story -
but by now I feel that the author Julia Quinn uses theses repeats as filler rather than continuing the story, which I hope won't be found in the next book .... as I love this series, but an author shouldn't think that the audience isn't following closely the story.
