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.

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.

Így aztán megállapodnak abban, hogy összeházasodnak, noha ez a frigy nem a mennyországban, hanem valami sokkal forróbb helyen köttetett... Ellie álmában sem gondolta volna, hogy egy vadidegenhez megy feleségül, ráadásul olyasvalakihez, akiben ellenállhatatlanul ötvöződik a kéjencek sármja és a kedélyes szellemesség. A lány igyekszik megtartani a három lépés távolságot, legalábbis addig, amíg a tetszetős felszín alatt meg nem találja a férfit. Mert Charles eléggé meggyőző - sőt gyengéd - tud lenni, ha akar, úgyhogy Ellie hamarosan elveszíti a fejét a férfi csábító varázslatának hatása alatt. Csók csókot követ, és ez a valószínűtlen pár ráébred, hogy kapcsolatuk nem is olyan kényelmetlen, mint hitték... és akár még szerelemre is gyúlhatnak egymás iránt.

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.

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.

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 - Lent ​délen, édes...
Egy ​szívtiprót csak egy nádi boszorka csábíthat el… Henrietta Barrett soha nem követte a társasági etikettet. Ő igazgatja idős gyámjának a távoli Cornwallban lévő birtokát, női ruha helyett nadrágban jár, és az egyáltalán nem kisasszonyos Henry névre hallgat. Ám amikor gyámja meghal, Henry szeretett otthona egy távoli unokatestvér tulajdonába kerül. És a kisasszonyt csak egy szívtipró szelídítheti meg. William Dunford, London legjobb partinak számító agglegénye meglepődik, amikor megtudja, hogy birtokot és nemesi címet örökölt… valamint egy gyámleányt, aki azon mesterkedik, hogy a birtokra tett első látogatása egyben az utolsó is legyen. Henry elhatározza, hogy a nagyon jóképű fiatal lord nélkül fogja tovább vezetni Stannage Parkot, de Dunford ugyanilyen biztos abban, hogy változtathat bizonyos dolgokon… és a változtatásokat zabolátlan fiatal gyámleányával kezdi. Azzal, hogy Henryt igazi hölggyé okíttatja, nemcsak az előkelő társaság kedvencévé teszi, de ellenállhatatlan kísértéssé is annak a férfinak, aki úgy gondolta, őt női báj és kellem soha nem kísérti meg.

Hugh ​Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife—so his sister hands him a list of the very best young ladies on the market. And then, because he refuses to tear himself away from the stables where he trains Arabian racehorses, she invites all those ladies to a house party, along with some other bachelors, of course.

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 - A ​vikomt, aki engem szeretett
1814 ​is eseménydús szezonnak ígérkezik, de e sorok írójának véleménye szerint ez nem igaz Anthony Bridgertonra, London legkívántabb agglegényére, aki ez idáig semmi jelét nem mutatta házasulási szándékának. És az igazat megvallva, miért is mutatná? Nála jobban senki nem játssza a tökéletes élvhajhászt. Lady Whistledown társasági lapja, 1814. április De a pletykalap szerzője ezúttal téved. Anthony Bridgerton nemcsak hogy elszánta magát a nősülésre, de már ki is választotta magának a feleségjelöltet. Az egyetlen akadály a hölgy nővére, Kate Sheffield, a legalkalmatlankodóbb nőszemély, aki valaha londoni bálterembe tette a lábát. A tüzes intrikus megőrjíti Anthonyt elszántságával, hogy megakadályozza a házasságot. De amikor Anthony Bridgerton éjszakánként lehunyja a szemét, Kate igen erotikus álmokban jelenik meg neki. A közvélekedéssel ellentétben Kate biztosra veszi, hogy nem a megjavult szoknyavadászokból lesz a legjobb férj; Anthony Bridgerton pedig a legnagyobb élvhajhász. Kate elszántan védelmezi a férfitól húgát, de fél, hogy éppen az ő szíve sebezhető. Amikor Anthony ajka az ajkához ér, hirtelen attól tart, ő maga sem képes ellenállni ennek a megvetendő élvhajhásznak. A herceg, és én folytatása!

Julia Quinn - Mr. ​Bridgerton csábítása
Mindenki ​tudja, hogy Colin Bridgerton a legelbűvölőbb férfi egész Londonban. LADY WHISTLEDOWN TÁRSASÁGI LAPJA, 1824. március Penelope Featherington titokban imádta legjobb barátnője bátyját, már… nos, már egy örökkévalóságnak tűnő ideje. Miután fél életét azzal töltötte, hogy távolról csodálta Colin Bridgertont, azt hiszi, mindent tud róla, mígnem véletlenül megismeri a férfi legféltettebb titkát… Colin Bridgertonnak elege van abból, hogy a társaság csak üres fejű szépfiúnak tartja, elege van az élet soha véget nem érő egyhangúságából és legfőképp elege van abból, hogy mindenki folyton a hírhedt pletykalapszerző Lady Whistledownnal foglalkozik, aki soha egyetlen lapszámban sem hagyja őt említés nélkül. De amikor Colin hazatér külföldi útjáról Londonba, rájön, hogy életében már semmi sem ugyanaz, mint volt… különösen Penelope Featherington változott meg.

Julia Quinn - The ​Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever
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 learned to accept the expectations society held for her—until the afternoon when Nigel Bevelstoke, the handsome and dashing Viscount Turner, solemnly kissed her hand and promised her that one day she would grow into herself, that one day she would be as beautiful as she already was smart. 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 - 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.

Step ​into the glittering world of Regency and prepare to have your hearts warmed by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway... During their annual Christmas pilgrimage to Scotland to visit their aged uncle in his decrepit castle, the Comte de Rocheforte and his cousin, Earl of Oakley, are presented with unique gifts: their uncle has raided an English lord's Christmas party and kidnapped four lovely would-be brides for his heirs to choose from ...as well as one very angry duke, Lord Bretton. As snow isolates the castle, and as hours grow into days, the most honourable intentions give away to temptations as surprising as they are irresistible.

Julia Quinn - Minx
IT ​TAKES A MINX TO TEMPT A ROGUE... Beautiful and feisty Henrietta Barrett has never followed the dictates of society. She manages her elderly guardian's estate, prefers to wear breeches rather than dresses, and answers to the unlikely name of Henry. But when her guardian passes away, her beloved home falls into the hands of a distant cousin. AND IT TAKES A ROGUE TO TAME HER William Dunford, London's most elusive bachelor, is stunned to learn that he's inherited property, a title... and a ward bent on making his first visit his last. Henry is determined to continue running the Cornwall estate without help from the handsome new lord, but Dunford is just as sure he can change things ... starting with his wild young ward. But turning Henry into a lady makes her not only the darling of the ton, but an irresistible attraction to the man who thought he could never be tempted.
