RETURN TO THE WORLD OF THE BRIDGERTONS . . .
________________________________________

Go back to where it all began with the third book in Sunday Times bestselling author Julia Quinn’s dazzlingly witty Bridgerton prequel series, featuring the ancestors of the Bridgerton characters we all know and love. A generation before the Bridgertons, there were the Rokesbys . . .

She was in the wrong place . . .

Poppy Bridgerton may be fiercely independent and adventurous but even she was not prepared to be kidnapped by pirates from the Dorset coast!

He found her at the wrong time . . .

Despite his reputation as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby is stunned to find Poppy tied up and waiting for him in his cabin.

Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?

Poppy has no idea that Andrew is actually the son of an earl, but when he learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew’s secrets are revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart . . . ?

Love in a time of Feminism
Quinn's mastery of banter, character development, and the slow build of romantic and sexual tension is on full display in the newest Rokesby title (a series of 18th-century prequels to the Bridgerton Regency romances). Mentions of puzzles and architecture add interesting texture to an already compelling story. Delightful and charming
