Julia Quinn - Aranylóbb ​a napnál
Eleanor ​Lyndon csak a maga dolgával törődött, amikor egy magas rangú úr szó szerint az életébe pottyant. Amikor Charles Wycombe, Billington jóképű és javíthatatlan grófja leesett egy fáról, és egyenesen Ellie lába előtt ért földet, még egyikük sem sejtette, hogy ebből a szerencsés találkozásból házasság lesz. De Charlesnak még a harmincadik születésnapja előtt feleséget kell találnia, különben elveszíti a vagyonát. Ellie kénytelen lesz férjhez menni, különben apja utálatos menyasszonya választ neki házastársat. 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 - 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.

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.

Julia Quinn - Csudajó
Két ​tényt mindenki tud Alexander Ridgelyről. Az egyik, hogy ő Ashbourne hercege. A másik, hogy a házasság nem szerepel a közeli tervei között… Ez egészen addig igaz, míg egy vörös hajú amerikai lány a kocsija elé nem veti magát, hogy megmentse a herceg fiatal unokaöccsét. A lány olyan, amilyennek Alex sosem gondolt volna hölgyet… Okos és humoros, fegyelmezett és bátor. De szolgáló. Nem illik egy rangos arisztokratához… Kivéve, ha a hölgy nem az, aminek látszik… Az amerikai örökösnő, Emma Dunster körül tolongnak az angol urak, de ez nem jelenti azt, hogy szándékában állna bármelyikükhöz hozzámenni feleségül; akkor sem, ha beleegyezett, hogy részt vesz a londoni társasági szezon eseményein. Amikor titokban, konyhalányruhában kiosont unokanővére londoni házából, csak egy kicsit még élvezni szerette volna az ismeretlenséget a debütálása előtt. Nem gondolta volna, hogy egy veszélyesen jóképű herceg karjában találja magát… és hogy ez a herceg meglehetősen zaklatott lesz, amikor kiderül Emma valódi kiléte. Ám úgy tűnik, az igaz szerelem akkor borul virágba, amikor az ember arra a legkevésbé számít, és a szenvedély a legmakacsabb szíveket is képes megolvasztani.

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 - The ​Girl with the Make-Believe Husband
_While ​you were sleeping..._ With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic, determined to nurse her brother back to health. But after a week of searching, she finds not her brother but his best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby. He's unconscious and in desperate need of her care, and Cecilia vows that she will save this soldier's life, even if staying by his side means telling one little lie... _I told everyone I was your wife_ When Edward comes to, he's more than a little confused. The blow to his head knocked out six months of his memory, but surely he would recall getting married.

But when the truth comes out, Edward may have a few surprises of his own for the new Mrs. Rokesby.

Julia Quinn - Romancing ​Mister Bridgerton: The Epilogue II

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.

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.

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 . . .
