Editorial Reviews Review

Setting: Regency England

Sensuality: 7

Wise, lovely, and kind, Kate Sheffield is determined that her beautiful half-sister, Edwina, marry a reputable man. Unfortunately for Kate, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton--London's most eligible bachelor and a notorious rake to boot--sets his sights on Edwina, and what the viscount wants, the viscount gets.

Hardly a problem for the impossibly handsome viscount, that is until the determined Kate, whose deep, dark eyes and lush mouth send his senses racing, presents a challenge that Anthony cannot refuse. Worse yet, Kate's response to his playful advances only confirms the ardent attraction that both seem desperate to deny. Anthony is faced with a dilemma. On the one hand, the perfectly amiable Edwina, while on the other, the most stubborn, single-minded--yet confoundedly desirable--female ever to grace a London ballroom. Anthony's quandary comes to a fast and fateful conclusion when he and Kate are caught in an innocent but compromising position.

It's no surprise that Julia Quinn's setting, characterization, and plot are flawless. Add to this masterful mix deeper emotional issues offset by the trademark Quinn wit, and you truly do have romance at it's best. Nobody does Regency quite like the mighty Quinn. --Lois Faye Dyer


"Julia Quinn is truly our contemporary Jane Austen." -- --Jill Barnett

More About the Author

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and several years back she did so in grand style, competing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

Customer Reviews

This is the second book in Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series.
Simone Doucet
The Viscount who loved Me by Julia Quinn is very funny historical romance novel with some very sweet moments.
My only complaint was that it felt short but I just love to read so I never want the book to end.

DON'T read the book jacket to decide if you want to buy this latest diamond of Julia Quinn's, just read what we, your faithful reviewers have to tell. Although I, the doubting one, thought she could never top 'How to Marry a Marquis'. No, just go directly to the Amazon 'BUY NOW' button and click quick. I recommend overnight delivery.
Now, I have read untold romances where the so-called plain older sister was witty, loyal, tooooooo perfect to believe, and who becomes pretty because some man falls in love with her. The younger, beautiful diamond daughter is either vapid and a bimbo or she is evil, conceited and totally unlikeable. But you want to know something? Julia Quinn, in her infinite wisdom, has decided to create characters who are very real. Kate, the older sister, has some definite (loveable at times) personality flaws, while Edwina the stunning is the brainy, kind younger step-sister with a smashing sense of the ridiculous. They love each other fiercely, and Kate will absolutely not allow an unworthy (in her opinion) suitor within 100 yards of Edwina.
Enter Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton. He knows he needs to father an heir (for reasons that are complicated so read the book. Just let me say that my father reacted exactly the way Anthony did to his father's death; my dad is now in his 70's). Viscount Bridgerton loves his siblings and thank you again, Julia, for a loving uppercrust family. So naturally Anthony asks his brothers who the season's diamond is and declares he will marry her when they tell him it is Edwina Sheffield.
The rest of the book had me (I hate to say braying, it is so unfeminine and undignified) with laughter unexpectedly on many pages. Lady Whistledown, unkown society reporter, is a wit and a seer. I sincerely hope that the next Julia Quinn (soon soon please please) tackles the engaging Lady Whistledown, or Anthony's younger, oh my gosh, just as wickedly charming brother Colin.
We readers await your pleasure, Julia Quinn!

"The Viscount Who Loved Me" is another great and enjoyable read from Julia Quinn. Anthony Bridgerton first delighted me when he teased and supported his sister Daphne in "The Duke and I." When Ms. Quinn announced her new book, I began to watch eagerly for its release. I was not disappointed!
In "The Viscount Who Loved Me" Anthony Bridgerton comes into his own in a delightful book that makes you laugh, feel the characters' emotions, and devoutly wish the Bridgerton's were your very own family.
Anthony has decided it is time he was wed and quickly settles on the Season's "diamond," Edwina who has said she won't marry unless her sister approves of the man. Anthony sets out to charm sister Kate. In Kate, Julia Quinn gives us a female character to match Anthony. Our characters verbally fence their way through the enjoyable chapters while understandably falling in love with one another.
I love a good read - and this book certainly qualifies as a god read. I couldn't put this book down.

The "The Viscount who love me" is the second book of the Bridgerton Series. The "Duke and I" is the first book & story of Dafne, first younger sister of Anthony. 3rd book would be the "An Offer From A Gentleman", story of second brother, Benedict. Still coming soon on July, 2001. 
This is my second book of Julia Quinn and I must say, I am more than please. The "Duke & I" was my first & as soon as I finished that, I went and bought this one. So far, so good... I cannot wait to read more of her books especially the rest of this Bridgerton Series.
Viscount Anthony Bridgerton is one my few favorites heroes of all time. He is not only handsome, rich & England's most eligible bachelor, he also possessed one character that impressed me the most. He respects and truly love his family. His father died when he was 18 years old and as the eldest son, he took the responsibility of taking care of his family ( a mother, 3 brothers, 4sisters and himself). Now that a big load, He didn't do this out of obligation though, he is truly devoted to them with love & pride. He is their protector and he most certainly watch out for them especially the woman. I specially loved the scenes of Anthony being helpless when it comes to his mother. The dowager Viscountess is surely a wonderful mother - Heart warming! Anthony still listens to her & even fears her ( chuckle ). Despite his MANLY reputation in the society, when it comes to his mother, Anthony is simply a son... and mother's knows best. He might be describe as a RAKE but he is responsible & honorable when it comes to his family. In the past, I have read books wherein it defines the hero as such too but there is limited action to convince me so.

"The Viscount who Loved Me" is another great book by Julia Quinn! Anthony Bridgerton had a magical, loving childhood surrounded by love and doting parents. His parents were fantastically in love and he had a shining example of that love held before him during his childhood. Which is what screwed him up. You see, Anthony's' father died at 38 years old, from a bee sting when Anthony was just 18 years old. Since he held his father in such high esteem he could never conceive of outdistancing his father as a man in any way and he is convinced that he will die by the age of 38, if not before. So, he has spent his years since then, not only taking care of his family - he has seven other siblings and a mother to take care of - but he has been living life to the hilt as the ultimate Rake.
Enter Kate Sheffield, she is the oldest sister of the `Diamond' of the season Edwina and the Anthony's chosen wife. Only, Edwina has decided that Anthony is too big of a Rake to make a good husband for her sister and is doing everything she can to stop his marriage. While Anthony is doing everything he can to not fall in love with Kate. He has decided that he could not bear to die young if he had to leave a loved one behind.
This really is a great book and I highly recommend it. It shows that an author can create a attractive, intelligent hero without making him a complete jerk or from a dysfunctional family where the word love was a byword for stupidity. She has also created an intelligent, loving woman who is nor a wimp and who shares the same interests as the hero. Julia Quinn reminds me of Amanda Quick only better.
