Setting: Regency England
Penelope Featherington fell madly, hopelessly in love with Colin Bridgerton two days before her 16th birthday. Unfortunately, Colin has always seen Penelope as the plump, shy best friend of his younger sister. By the time Penelope is 28 and a seasoned member of the English ton, she's accepted that her love for Colin is destined to remain unrequited and she shall be a spinster forever. Fate, however, has other plans. When Lady Whistledown's Society Papers announce that Colin has returned from his nearly nonstop travels, Penelope is blissfully unaware that her life is about to change dramatically. Colin is equally unaware of the turn his life is about to take. He's not surprised that his beloved mother is determined to marry him off, but he's rather astonished to find himself inexplicably drawn to Penelope. Her dry wit and intelligent mind are delightful, and Colin soon finds himself joining forces with her to deflect his matchmaking mama's good intentions. Together, the two will thwart their mothers' iron wills, face the formidable Lady Danbury, confront the gossips of London society, and resolve the lovely dilemma of falling in love. And, oh yes, there is that matter of the true identity of Lady Whistledown. Will the twosome unmask the elusive journalist? Or will their efforts be doomed to failure like so many others' before?
Romancing Mr. Bridgerton continues author Julia Quinn's wildly popular series of Regency historicals featuring the Bridgerton family, The Duke and I, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and An Offer from a Gentleman. True, the novel possesses all that we've come to expect from Quinn, including deft plotting, witty repartee, a faultless Regency setting, and expert characterization. But perhaps the book's most pleasing facet is Quinn's quietly nuanced handling of the hero's and the heroine's internal growth, which is furthered by their blooming relationship. They're two strong individuals made stronger by their bond. Now that's love. --Lois Faye Dyer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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?

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!
So for me, the culmination is wonderful. We're not just told that Penelope and Colin missed each other for twelve years, the reader's actually experience it from the beginning. And so by the time this book begins, you know Penelope has a dry wit that not many are aware of, and that Colin is a little less of the shiftless third son. You know they're both running in the opposite directions. Penelope is too afraid to say anything, and Colin doesn't realize who she is.
But in the end, when you run in the opposite direction, you end up meeting again in the same place, and maybe, finally, at the right time.
