Julia Quinn - Botrány ​Kentben
Két ​választási lehetőség... Georgiana Bridgerton nem ellenzi a házasság gondolatát. Csak épp azt hitte, lesz némi beleszólása a dologba. A hírnevét azonban sárba tiporták, mert a hozománya miatt elrabolták, és most két lehetőség közül választhat: vagy vénlányként éli le az életét, vagy hozzámegy ahhoz a gazemberhez, aki tönkretette az életét. A harmadik megoldás... Nicholas Rokesby, Manston grófjának negyedik fia a saját útját járja. Edinburghban tanul, hamarosan befejezi az orvosi egyetemet, és nincs ideje arra – sőt nem is érdekli –, hogy feleséget találjon. Ám amikor tudomására jut, hogy Georgie Bridgertont, aki szó szerint a szomszédban lakik, kompromittálták, pontosan tudja, mit kell tennie. Érdekházasság... A lánykérés nem sikerült túlságosan romantikusra, de Nicholasban fel sem merült, hogy a lány nemet mond. Georgie nem kéri senkitől, hogy áldozatot hozzon érte, különben is, egészen eddig gyerekkori barátként tekintettek egymásra, ez mégis hogyan változhatna meg? A szokatlan udvarlás során azonban a sors meglepő fordulatot hoz. Előbb botrány, majd házasság. És végül a szerelem beteljesülése.

Julia Quinn - Miss ​Bridgerton miatt
_Néha ​ott találod meg a szerelmet, ahol a legkevésbé várnád…_ Most nem ez történik. Mindenki azt várja, hogy Billie Bridgerton az egyik Rokesby fiúhoz megy majd feleségül. A két család már évszázadok óta él egymás szomszédságában, és gyermekként a fiús lendületű Billie rendszerint Edwarddal és Andrew-val csatangolt. Bármelyikből remek férj válna… valamikor. Néha pontosan abba szeretsz bele, akibe szerinted kellene…_ Vagy nem. A Rokesby családnak csak egyetlen olyan tagja van, akit Billie ki nem állhat, és az George. Ugyan ő a legidősebb, így a hercegség hivatalos örököse, de arrogáns, idegesítő, és Billie mély meggyőződéssel hiszi, hogy a férfi megveti őt. Ami tökéletesen kényelmes felállás, mert ő maga sem bírja elviselni George-nak még a látványát sem. _De néha a sorsnak különösen kegyetlen a humora…_ Mert amikor Billie és George a sors különös szeszélye folytán szó szerint egymásba kénytelen kapaszkodni, másfajta szikrák kezdenek pattogni körülöttük. És amikor a két régi ellenfél végre megcsókolja egymást, lassan felfedezik, hogy az, aki mellett képtelenek megmaradni, ugyanaz, aki nélkül élni sem tudnának.
