Lady Whistledown Recommends

Did you fall in love with Bridgerton on Netflix? It’s a sumptuous adaptation of Julia Quinn, opens a new window’s novel, “The Duke and I,”, opens a new window and it is so exciting to see a local author’s stories be adapted for the screen. If you have already read the book series and binged every episode of the show, you may need new stories to pass the time until season two. We all know Lady Whistledown loves a good scandal. Here's what she'd recommend: 

The Lost Duke of Wyndham: Why not pick up another series by Julia Quinn? Filled with her signature banter, lighthearted wit, and steamy romance, this is a fun regency romance following a reluctant duke and the hardworking companion to the dowager Duchess.

To Have and to Hoax: If you loved the humor and drama in Bridgerton, you might like this charming story of a couple in a cold and detached marriage engaging in an escalating game of manipulation that sends them on zany schemes. All is fair in love and war. Will their games lead to rekindled romance?

Slightly Married: In this super steamy, heartwarming romance with quirky characters, marriage-shy Colonel Lord Aidan Bedwyn enters into a marriage of convenience with Eve Morris to honor her brother’s dying request.

Wilde in Love: After returning home from dangerous adventures, the notoriously rakish Lord Alaric Wilde, finds himself drawn to the very private, but clever Miss Willa Ffynche in this witty and sensual novel. 

A Duke, the Lady, and A Baby: A diverse cast of characters leads this slow-burning, banter-filled romance following a rakish war hero, a strong, determined woman, and a secret society on a mission to help ill-treated widows
