Julia Quinn - Hogyan ​fogjunk örökösnőt
attraktív ​– vonzó „Soha senkit még ennyire attraktívnak nem találtam. Vagy szerelmes vagyok, vagy romlott volt a hal, amelyet tegnap este ettem.” Caroline Trent saját szótárából Amikor Blake Ravenscroft elrabolja Caroline Trentet, a lány még csak nem is próbál menekülni a vészesen jóképű férfi elől, hiszen éppen egy nem kívánt kényszerházasság elől futott világgá. Blake viszont azt hiszi, hogy a lány nem más, mint a hírhedt kémnő, Carlotta De Leon. Caroline-nak még hat hetet kell várnia a huszonegyedik születésnapjáig, akkor lesz ugyanis az övé az öröksége. Kapóra jön, és nem kevés jóleső izgalommal is jár, hogy titokzatos fogva tartójánál rejtőzhet. Blake Ravenscroft a brit koronát szolgálja, feladata az, hogy „Carlottát” átadja az igazságszolgáltatásnak. A férfi szívét megkeményítette az élet, ám ezt a lányt különös módon lefegyverzőnek találja. Egyszer csak megtörténik a lehetetlen – az össze nem illő két ember egymásba szeret.

Julia Quinn - Because ​of Miss Bridgerton
There ​were Bridgertons before the eight alphabetically named siblings, and in this first of a new prequel series, New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn goes back to where it all began. _Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places..._ _This is not one of those times._ Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday. _Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should..._ _Or not._ There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant, annoying, and she’s absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can’t stand the sight of him, either. _But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor..._ Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can’t abide is the one person they can’t live without...

Julia Quinn - Wyndham ​elveszett hercege
Volna ​szíves Wyndham igazi hercege előállni? Jack Audley útonálló. Katona. Mindig öntörvényű. Egy valami azonban soha nem volt, és nem is akart lenni, mégpedig egy kiterjedt birtok ura, aki egy ősi örökségért és százak megélhetéséért felelős. De amikor felismerik benne a Wyndham-ház rég elveszettnek hitt sarját, gondtalan élete véget ér. Ha kiderül, hogy a származása törvényes, övé lesz a cím, amit soha nem kívánt magának: ő lesz Wyndham hercege. Grace Eversleigh már öt éve dolgozik Wyndham hercegi özvegyének társalkodónőjeként. Hálátlan munka, a mindennapok egyhangúságát csak néha töri meg egy-egy kisebb esemény... egészen addig, míg hetyke mosolyával és könnyed vonzerejével meg nem jelenik a színen Jack Audley. Nem az a férfi, aki a nemet elfogadja válaszul, és amikor Grace a karjaiban van, ő már nem az a nő, aki nemet akar mondani. Ám ha Jack Audley az igazi herceg, ő az egyetlen férfi, akit soha nem kaphat meg.

Julia Quinn - Sir ​Phillipnek szeretettel
_Kedves ​Miss Bridgerton!_ _Elég hosszú ideje levelezünk, és bár személyesen sosem találkoztunk, nem mutattak be minket hivatalosan egymásnak, úgy érzem, jól ismerem önt. Remélem, ön is így érez._ _Kérem, bocsásson meg, ha túl merész vagyok, de azért írok, hogy meghívjam, látogasson meg Romney Hallban. Remélem, megfelelő idő elteltével úgy találjuk, hogy egymáshoz illünk, akkor, ha feleségül kérem, talán igent mond nekem._ _Sir Phillip Crane_ Sir Phillip tudta, hogy Eloise Bridgerton vénkisasszony. Azért kérte meg a kezét, mert feltételezte, hogy szerény, nincsenek nagy igényei, és nagyon, de nagyon szeretne már férjhez menni. Csakhogy… nem ilyen volt, és nem így volt. Az ajtaja előtt megjelent fiatal nő minden volt, csak nem csendes, és amikor végre becsukta a száját, Sir Phillip nem akart mást, csak csókolni… illetve mást is akart. _Vajon elment az esze?_ Eloise Bridgerton nem mehet feleségül egy olyan férfihoz, akivel sosem találkozott! De aztán gondolkodni kezdett… és eltűnődött… és azon kapta magát, hogy bérkocsiban indul éjnek évadján, hogy találkozzon a férfival, akivel talán tökéletesen illenek egymáshoz. Csakhogy… nem volt tökéletes. A tökéletes férj nem lehet szeszélyes és rossz modorú, és bár Phillip nyilvánvalóan szép ember, de nagydarab, magas és erős, és nyers modorú; egyáltalán nem olyan, mint azok a londoni úriemberek, akik addig megkérték a kezét. De amikor elmosolyodik… megszűnt létezni a külvilág, és Eloise csak csodálta… vajon ez a tökéletlen férfi neki tökéletes lehet?

So who will Hugh choose? The Botticelli-esque, enchanting Gwendolyn? The outspoken, delightful Katherine? If he doesn't work fast, he'll lose those ladies to his closest friends, and then where will he look for a wife?

Julia Quinn - Everything ​and the Moon
It ​was indisputably love at first sight. But Victoria Lyndon was merely the teenaged daughter of a vicar. . .while Robert Kemble was the dashing young earl of Macclesfield.

So it most certainly was for the best when their plans to elope went hopelessly awry. Even after a seven-year separation, Victoria--now a governess--still leaves Robert breathless. But how could he ever again trust the raven-haired deceiver who had shattered his soul? And Victoria could never give her heart a second time to the cad who so callously trampled on it the first. But a passion fated will not be denied, and vows of love yearn to be kept. . . even when one promises the moon

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?

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.

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 . . .

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.
