In The Viscount Who Loved Me, Ms. Quinn brings us Anthony Bridgerton’s story. It’s great fun!

The 'Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers' have labeled Viscount Anthony Bridgerton the most ‘elusive bachelor’ of the ton who has never shown any indications that he wishes to marry. But what society didn’t know is that Anthony has already decided to marry, and he has already chosen his bride. The only thing is, she doesn’t know it yet! And one thing is standing in his way; his intended’s half-sister, Kate Sheffield. She’s doing everything in her power to ensure that Edwina will not fall prey to the wiles of the notorious rake.

Kate, despite popular belief, is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands, and she’s determined to make sure that Anthony Bridgerton stays away from her sister and finds another to torment into marriage. But, with all of the meddling that Kate is doing on behalf of her sister, she doesn’t realize that she is driving Anthony mad. And that because of her constant presence, his dreams are now filled with Kate and all of the passionate things that he would like to do with her. But will all of these determinations to protect her sister only make Kate’s heart that more vulnerable to the rake in question? And what will she do when she falls in love with Anthony Bridgerton, London’s most elusive RAKE?

Ms. Quinn’s newest ‘Bridgerton’ story is very well written. Full of fun and sexual tension. Anthony is a very stubborn man and Kate is a very willful woman. They mix like oil and water and it makes for a perfect chemistry. This is must read, can’t-put-it-down book.
