Unfortunately, Simon’s horrible father and terrible youth make him never want to have children of his own and so he and Daphne come to blows.
The Bridgerton family walks away with the prize in this story, which presumably is the set up for the series. Anthony, Daphne’s older brother, and Violet, her mother, in particular were winning characters. Daphne did tend to overshadow the duke a bit. Quinn made clever use of a society rag sheet’s ramblings… Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, which was charming.
It was a fun Regency tale and I’m sure the series will bring more of the same. I think Anthony’s story, which is book 2, would be one to read.
The Bridgerton Series:
The Duke and I
The Viscount Who Loved Me
An Offer From a Gentleman
Romancing Mr. Bridgerton
To Sir Phillip With Love
When He Was Wicked
It’s In His Kiss
On the Way to the Wedding
She sees he's incompacitated, determines he's helpless to stop her, and decides that is the only time she can get that she wants. Regardless of his consent. Which he explicitly denied on multiple occasions.
During and after the rape, she mitigates the violation with nauseatingly familiar justifications: she knows he wanted it, she couldn't help herself, it was his fault really for trying to deny her in the first place - he didn't have a right to say no, she was confused and couldn't remember exactly who had done what (lady, you sat beside him and methodically planned it out then raped him)!
Worst of all, she denies the rape until the bitter end and uses gas lighting techniques to convince them both it never happened.
It's sick. Daphne is the worst excuse for a heronine I've read in a long while.
