From the Back Cover
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?

Whatever the reason, I love this story. I love how the romance unfolds naturally, built on years of friendship (and yes, maybe a little pity at first). I've read this book a million times, and I'm still not tired of it.
Pure Regency romance, I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genre, as well as anyone who wants a funny, sweet, (fairly mild in the intimacy scenes) romance set in 18th century England.
Penelope was okay. I didn't really understand why she was single. She wasn't hideous and she wasn't ill-mannered in large groups. She was just plain and quiet. That doesn't equate to never having any chance ever that at least ONE man would send her flowers or ask her to dance more than once in one night or something. I just needed to know more of why she never had any attention besides wearing bright dresses. Also, I thought she was rather too calm when he told her he loved her. After pining after him for twelve years, all the reaction you give to that is a big fat nothing?
Colin was . . . not the hero I was hoping for. To be honest, I came here from the Smythe-Smith Quartet series, and in Honoria's story she talks to Colin for a bit and I was excited to learn that this Colon guy had a story of his own. I hadn't read any of the Bridgerton books before this one. However, I was disappointed. Colin got crazy mad crazy easy. Like, dropping insults left and right, holding onto her so tightly she'll bruise, repeatedly wanting to shake her by the shoulders (most people do this in a gentle way, like, "Hey! Get it together!" But the way Colin thought it, it sounded more violent) and then in the next moment be like, "Oh, that was badly done of me. I need to apologize." But then Penelope would apologize first every time and he'd get off easy.
I was hoping that just as Colin was starting to discover how wonderful she was, another guy would swoop in and steal her away or something. But the angst in this book isn't the angst I love to read. It's just two characters always seemingly irritated with each other.
Well, now Colin's back from his travels and Penelope is officially considered "on the shelf". Her mother no longer chooses her clothes and Penelope has started dressing in styles and colors that are attractive on her. She's not under the pressure of "husband hunting" so she's much more relaxed these days. And, besides, Colin's an old friend. Her best friend's brother, right? Well, she's been secretly (?) in love with Colin for many, many years and she doesn't handle him any better now than she did then. But she learns. And he pays attention, doesn't he? Or does he? How can a man be so oblivious to how special a woman can be once she's grown up and her own person? But he's too good for her, isn't he? Or is he?
Maybe Colin isn't oblivious to how special she is now that she's a woman grown. But isn't she just his sister's best friend? Isn't she just Penelope? But why does he keep dreaming about her? And what is her secret? When they blow the whistle, sparks will fly. But when you deal with Bridgertons, they usually do!
Another fun couple for the Bridgerton family saga!
