Sir Phillip knew that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he'd proposed, figuring that she'd be homely and unassuming, and more than a little desperate for an offer of marriage. Except . . . she wasn't. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quiet, and when she stopped talking long enough to close her mouth, all he wanted to do was kiss her . . . and more.

Did he think she was mad? Eloise Bridgerton couldn't marry a man she had never met! But then she started thinking . . . and wondering . . . and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match. Except . . . he wasn't. Her perfect husband wouldn't be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was a large brute of a man, rough and rugged, and totally unlike the London gentlemen vying for her hand. But when he smiled . . . and when he kissed her . . . the rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn't help but wonder . . . could this imperfect man be perfect for her?

User Review  - Alyx - Borders

I was really dissapointed in this installment of the Bridgerton family to say the least. Eloise was one of my favorite people in everyone elses book. I was really let down by her story, and thought she was a stronger heroine then that. Read full review

This book was a charming book. Not only does it have humor but romance. It is one of those books where it is a love hate relationship. Sir Phillips kids are great and the way they play remind me of my children and I have a feeling that Eloise is not going to have the pranks without getting a few jibes of her own
