Julia Quinn - It's ​in His Kiss
Meet ​Our Hero ... Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth's sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past .. and the key to his future. The problem is -- it's written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word. Meet Our Heroine ... All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She's fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there's something about her -- something charming and vexing -- that grabs him and won't quite let go ... Meet Poor Mr. Mozart ... Or don't. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual -- and annually discordant -- Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth's every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other ... and that there is nothing as simple -- or as complicated -- as a single, perfect kiss.

Julia Quinn - An ​Offer From a Gentleman
Julia ​Quinn is sure to charm readers with her Regency-era Cinderella story, An Offer From a Gentleman. The Bridgerton family is wealthy, well born, and universally admired. And with six of the eight Bridgerton children already mingling with society, it's no wonder they're mentioned so frequently in the most popular (and accurate) source of social news, Lady Whistledown's Society Papers. But not even the mysterious Lady Whistledown can identify the masked maiden who completely captivated the Bridgerton second son, Benedict, at his mother's masquerade ball -- a silver-clad beauty who vanished on the stroke of midnight. It was a magical night for Sophie Beckett, orphaned, illegitimate daughter of the Earl of Penwood. Attending the ball was a beautiful dream, sharing the evening with Benedict Bridgerton was the stuff of fantasy -- and returning home to her role as unpaid servant to her father's cruel widow and stepdaughters was a nightmare. Then she lost even the small security of that position, and things went from bad to worse. By the time Sophie met Benedict again, she was in truly desperate straits. He made her feel precious, even in rags, but Sophie had grave reservations about accepting.

If he doesn't work fast, he'll lose those ladies to his closest friends, and then where will he look for a wife? Perhaps, just perhaps, toward a lady who's not on a market at all, and would require a great deal of persuading...

Julia Quinn - És ​boldogan éltek
Egyszer ​volt, hol nem volt, volt egyszer egy történelmi romantikus regényeket jegyző írónő, aki megalkotott egy családot... Illetve nem csak egy családot. Nyolc testvért, számos sógort, sógornőt, vőt, menyet, fiút, lányt, unokahúgokat, unokanővéreket, unokaöcsöket, unokabátyokat (nem is szólva egy túlsúlyos corgi kutyáról), plusz egy ellenállhatatlan matriarchát, aki mindannyiukkal felér... Ők a Bridgerton család: nem is család, inkább elemi erő. Az olvasók nyolc könyvön át nevettek, sírtak, szerették őket. De többet akartak. Ezért az olvasók azt kérdezték a szerzőtől: Mi történt azután? Simon elolvassa apja leveleit? Francescának és Michaelnek végre lesz gyermeke? Ki nyeri a Pall Mall-visszavágót? A ,,Vége" tényleg a történet végét jelenti? Ebben a kötetben Julia Quinn nyolc érdekes, mulatságos, szívmelengető ,,második epilógust" írt, és egy bónusz történetet nem másról, mint magáról a bölcs és szellemes matriarcháról, Violet Bridgertonról. Ismerjék meg újra a Bridgerton család tagjait... Mi történt velük?

Julia Quinn - Sir ​Richard Kenworthy titkai
Sir ​Richard Kenworthynek kevesebb, mint egy hónapja van, hogy feleséget találjon magának. Tudja, hogy nem lehet túl válogatós, de amikor meglátja a csellója mögött elbújó Iris Smythe-Smitht a hírhedt családi zeneesten, úgy véli, kincsre bukkant. Iris pontosan az a fajta lány, akit első pillantásra észre sem vesz az ember... sőt másodikra sem, de mégis van benne valami... valami forr a felszín alatt, és Sir Richard tudja, hogy ő az igazi. Iris Smythe-Smith megszokta, hogy alábecsülik. Szalmaszőke hajával és csendes, visszafogott intelligenciájával hajlamos beleolvadni a környezetébe, és számára ez így nagyon is megfelel. Így aztán, amikor Richard Kenworthy ragaszkodik hozzá, hogy bemutassák, Iris gyanakodva fogadja. A férfi udvarol neki, elbűvöli, és minden szempontból olyan benyomást kelt, mintha beleszeretett volna, de Iris nem igazán tudja elhinni, hogy ez így lenne. Amikor pedig a férfi házassági ajánlatát követően a lány kompromittáló helyzetben találja magát, amely után nem marad választása, kénytelen azt hinni, hogy a férfi titkol valamit... Bár a szíve azt súgja, mondjon igent. A Smythe-Smith család sorozat megjelent kötetei: Mint a mennyben, Micsoda éjszaka!, Egy csók... és minden más

Ehelyett egy harmadik megoldást választ, és hajóra szállva átszeli az Atlanti-óceánt, eltökélten, hogy ápolni fogja bátyját, míg fel nem épül.

Julia Quinn - Das ​geheime Tagebuch der Miss Miranda
2. ​März 1810: Heute habe ich mich verliebt! Dreizehn Tagebücher und neun Jahre später sind Mirandas Gefühle für Viscount Turner genauso unsterblich wie damals mit wenig Aussicht auf Erfolg: Eine kurze, verhängnisvolle Ehe hat ihn bitter gemacht. Aber immerhin ist er wieder frei. Auch wenn schöne Worte ihm kaum den Glauben an die Liebe wiedergeben werden, vermutet Miranda. Eher süße Taten! Und da ihre erste Saison unmittelbar bevorsteht, scheint es ein Leichtes, sich wenigstens einen Teil ihres Jungmädchentraums zu erfüllen: mit dem Viscount zu tanzen und ihm dabei zu gestehen, dass sie ihn liebt und immer lieben wird

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.

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!

De amikor Colin hazatér külföldi útjáról Londonba, rájön, hogy életében már semmi sem ugyanaz, mint volt… különösen Penelope Featherington változott meg.
