Romancing Mister Bridgerton
Avon, July, 2002.
Paperback, 370 pages.
Colin Bridgerton is handsome, witty and quite the eligible bachelor. Unfortunately, he has barely noticed Penelope Featherington, the shy, somewhat plump younger sister of one of his friends. Penelope has been madly in love with the dashing Colin for most of her adult life. Years have passed, and Penelope is now 28 -- and truly on the shelf. When Colin arrives back in London after numerous travels, things are about to change. After becoming acquainted with the outspoken Lady Danbury, Penelope learns to speak her mind and show the brilliant personality she has hidden for so many years. She also discovers how to dress with style. Suddenly, Colin can't take his eyes off her. The two join forces to finally unmask the identity of the infamous Lady Whistledown, author of Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, love blossoms. And, perhaps even more pressing for Quinn readers: will the identity of the elusive Lady Whistledown finally be revealed?
Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is another captivating entry in Ms. Quinn's collection of outstanding Regency romances. Her humor and clever repartee are matched with the real heart with which she crafts her stories. Quinn fans should relish this latest book.
