Julia Quinn - Bajo ​el brillo de la luna
Victoria, ​la hija del vicario de Bellfield, conoce muy bien la desolación y tristeza de un corazón roto. Su alma ha estado vagando desorientada desde que Robert, el futuro conde de Macclesfield, la cautivara con sus encantos para luego rechazarla. Ahora, siete años después del amargo final de su romance, sus caminos vuelven a cruzarse. Sin embargo, Victoria no ha sido la única en sufrir de mal de amores. El aristócrata, prendado de la candidez y dulzura de la doncella, no ha podido olvidarla y esconde su melancolía y pesadumbre tras una bien forjada máscara de mujeriego y conquistador. Cuando sus miradas se encuentren, surgirán antiguos rencores y agravios nunca expresados, pero también las pasiones selladas durante casi una década, el orgullo maltrecho y los vestigios de un amor más fuerte que el tiempo y las convenciones que deberá luchar nuevamente contra cualquier obstáculo.

Julia Quinn - Elizabeth Boyle - Stefanie Sloane - Laura Lee Guhrke - Four ​Weddings and a Sixpence
Beloved ​authors Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Boyle, Laura Lee Guhrke, and Stefanie Sloane deliver the stories of four friends from Madame Rochambeaux’s Gentle School for Girls who find an old sixpence in their bedchamber and decide that it will be the lucky coin for each of their weddings… “Something Old” Julia Quinn’s prologue introduces her heroine Beatrice Heywood and the premise for Four Weddings and a Sixpence. “Something New” In Stefanie Sloane’s unforgettable story, an ever-vigilant guardian decrees that Anne Brabourne must marry by her twenty-first birthday. But love finds her in the most unexpected of ways. “Something Borrowed” Elizabeth Boyle tells the tale of Cordelia Padley, who has invented a betrothed to keep her family from pestering her to wed. Now she’ll need to borrow one to convince them she’s found her true love. “Something Blue” In Laura Lee Guhrke’s story, unlucky Lady Elinor Daventry has her sixpence stolen from her and must convince the rake who pilfered the coin to return it in time for her own wedding. “... and a Sixpence in Her Shoe” Julia Quinn finishes with the story of Beatrice Heywood, who never believed that the sixpence was anything but a tarnished old coin—until it led all of her friends to true love. But her faith in the coin is tested when it keeps sending her to the wrong man!

Julia Quinn - A ​másik Miss Bridgerton
A ​lány rossz helyen volt… A rendkívül független és kalandvágyó Poppy Bridgerton csak annak hajlandó nyújtani a kezét, aki felettébb intelligens, és érdeklődési köre legalább oly széles, mint az övé. Sajnálatos módon a londoni szezon egyetlen ifja sem felel meg ezeknek a követelményeknek. Mialatt Poppy egy dorseti barátnőjénél vendégeskedik, a parton sétálva kellemes meglepetésként éri, hogy csempésztanyát fedez fel az egyik barlangban. De örömét hamarosan riadalom váltja fel, amikor két kalóz elrabolja, egy hajó fedélzetére hurcolja, és megkötözve, száját betömve a kapitány ágyán hagyják… A férfi rosszkor talál rá… Andrew James Rokesby kapitány, a vakmerő kalóz valójában létfontosságú cikkeket és dokumentumokat szállít a brit kormánynak. Most is vitorlát készül bontani, hogy a dagálykor Portugália partjai felé induljon, amikor döbbenten látja, hogy a kabinjában egy nő várja. Biztosan csak a képzelete játszik vele! De nem, a nő nagyon is valóságos –, s mivel a küldetése nem tűr halasztást, ez azt jelenti, hogy a nőt is magával kell vinnie… Kijöhet-e a két rosszból valami tökéletesen jó? Amikor Andrew megtudja, hogy a nő Bridgerton, az is világossá válik számára, hogy valószínűleg el kell vennie feleségül, hogy elkerüljék a botrányt… bár Poppynak fogalma sincs róla, hogy ő grófi sarj, és a lány kenti unokatestvéreinek szomszédja. A nyílt tengeren hajózva szócsatáik hamarosan részegítő szenvedélynek adják át helyüket. De amikor kiderül Andrew titka, elég lesz-e a férfi szerelmi vallomása, hogy meghódítsa a lány szívét?

2 ​March 1810 . . . Today, I fell in love. At the age of ten, Miranda Cheever showed no signs of Great Beauty.

And even at ten, Miranda knew she would love him forever. But the years that followed were as cruel to Turner as they were kind to Miranda. She is as intriguing as the viscount boldly predicted on that memorable day—while he is a lonely, bitter man, crushed by a devastating loss. But Miranda has never forgotten the truth she set down on paper all those years earlier—and she will not allow the love that is her destiny to slip lightly through her fingers . . .

Julia Quinn - Csókja ​megmondja
A ​HŐS Gareth St. Clair bajban van. Apja, aki megveti őt, elhatározta, hogy tönkreteszi a St. Clair-birtokot, hogy nyomorba döntse őt. Gareth egyetlen öröksége egy családi napló, amiben talán családi titkokról írnak… és ez lehet jövője nyitja. Csak az a probléma, hogy a szöveg olaszul íródott, mely nyelvet Gareth a legkisebb mértékig sem beszéli. A HŐSNŐ Az előkelő társaság egybehangzóan állítja, hogy Hyacinth Bridgerton kisasszonyhoz senki nem hasonlítható. Pokolian okos, rémesen szókimondó, és Gareth szerint valószínűleg csak kisebb dózisokban elviselhető. De van benne valami… valami bájos és bosszantó… ami megragadja a figyelmét, és nem ereszti. SZEGÉNY MOZART ÚR Valószínűleg éppen forog a sírjában, amikor Gareth és Hyacinth találkozik az évente megrendezett Smythe–Smith-zeneesten. Hyacinth jó hírű lány; az, hogy Gareth St. Clair társaságában látják, meglehetős merészség, de jól érzi magát a társaságában és felajánlja, hogy lefordítja a naplót, bár olasztudása nem egészen tökéletes. De ahogy beveszik magukat a titokzatos szövegbe, rájönnek, hogy a válaszok, amelyekre oly régóta várnak, nem a naplóban vannak… egymásban találják meg… és semmi sem olyan egyszerű – vagy olyan bonyolult –, mint egyetlen, tökéletes csók.

Julia Quinn - Brighter ​than the Sun
SWEETER ​THAN A DREAM Charles Wycombe, the dashing—if incorrigible— Earl of Billington, needs a bride before his upcoming thirtieth birthday if he hopes to earn his inheritance. The vicar's vivacious, determined daughter, Miss Eleanor Lyndon, needs a new home, since her father's insufferable fiancee is making her old one intolerable. Destiny has brought Charles and Ellie together—though their match at the outset appears to have been made somewhere rather hotter than heaven. BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN Their first meeting is less than auspicious—with a somewhat soused Charles falling from a tree and landing at Eleanor's feet. While they agree to marry for their mutual convenience, Charles is not prepared to let a woman command his household. And certainly strong-willed Ellie refuses to let a rogue run her life. Yet the rakish earl can be quite charming—and even tender—when he puts his mind to it. And there's no denying the sensuous allure of his enchanting, innocent, yet utterly stubborn wife. Even though mad mishaps and very real dangers threaten their fragile union, they must follow where passion leads—to the rapturous warmth and brilliance of love.

Julia Quinn - Egy ​csók... és minden más
Az ​úr a hölgyről: tudálékos, bosszantó nőszemély. Hugh Prentice-nek sosem volt türelme a teátrális nőkhöz, és ha Lady Sarah Pleinsworth valaha tudta is, mit jelent a szerény és visszahúzódó mint pozitív női tulajdonság, e becses magatartás gyakorlásáról minden jel szerint elég régen lemondott. Az sem számítana, ha Hugh időközben megszokná olyannak, amilyen, és elnézné neki ezen súlyos hiányosságát. A briliáns matematikusnak ugyanis egy esztelen párbaj következtében megsérült a lába, és emiatt nem tud futni, lovagolni és keringőzni sem. Soha nem udvarolhatna egy olyan hölgynek, mint Sarah, arról pedig végképp nem álmodhatna, hogy feleségül veszi. A hölgy az úrról: egészen egyszerűen őrült. Sarah sosem bocsátotta meg Hugh-nak a három évvel korábban vívott párbajt, amelynek következtében unokabátyja száműzetésbe kényszerült, amivel kis híján az egész családot tönkretette. Az sem számítana, ha meg tudná bocsátani neki ezt. Nem a sérült járása miatt képtelen elviselni a társaságát, a személyiségét tartja abszolút kiállhatatlannak. Ám amikor kénytelenek egy hetet egymás társaságában tölteni, mindketten rájönnek, hogy az első benyomás nem mindig megbízható. És amikor egy csókból kettő lesz, és három és négy, a matematikus elveszti kiváló számolási képességét, a hölgy pedig életében először nem talál szavakat.
