Publisher's Summary

1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, this author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better... - Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814

But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry - he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield - the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams.

Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands - and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister - but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself.

Good One!

What did you love best about The Viscount Who Loved Me?

The interactions between Kate Sheffield and Lord Anthony Bridgerton.

What did you like best about this story?

When the wealthy Lord Anthony decides to take a wife he chooses Kate's sister; the beautiful, petite "Diamond" of the London season. Kate has set herself up as her sister's protector against the rakes and undesirables who are vying for the beauty's hand. She is especially against the charming Viscount Anthony Bridgerton reported to be the biggest rake in London. Their interchange is hilarious; she steps on his feet, and he steps on her hand.

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

Everything, she is an excellent narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud on several occasions.

Any additional comments?

After the poor choices in entertainment I've made of late "The Viscount Who Loved Me" was a pleasant surprise.

What a wonderful surprise

This was a good story a great follow up to the duke who loved me. It is the story about the oldest of the siblings. The story was funny and a page turner. Well worth the credit.

Meh

All was well until charter 20..... The story got weird and a bit boring, somewhat predictable.

Be Prepared to Laugh as You Listen

Another great Bridgerton saga romance. Love Landor's performance. Quinn has created an awesome world where we can watch the characters interact as they grow old together. I sit and almost "cackle" as I laugh at the most humorous parts of the book. I especially enjoyed the family game play where the competition and rivalry are only limited by the character's imagination.

Skip it

I enjoyed book 3 Enchanted Pleasures much more than this one. The reason that the hero thinks he cannot love the heroine is stupid and I just couldn't get past it. (The author knows that many readers will feel as I did so she explains it further in the prologue.) I also did not feel the same chemistry for these characters as I did for book 3. Skip this one.

4.5 Stars - My Favourite Bridgerton Couple

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn (Audio Edition) with 2nd Epilogue
Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
Series: The Bridgertons #2

4.5 Stars - This was a fun listen, Kate and Anthony have a wonderful chemistry together. They bicker and snipe, yet each time fall for each other a little bit more. Their dialogue is witty, situations are funny and they have to be one of my favourite couples. Colin Bridgerton is great and always makes me smile. Of course I cannot forget to mention the fantastic Bridgerton Pall Mall match!

The bonus second epilogue is one of my favourites! As for narration, Rosalyn Landor does a great job as always.

Worth the long wait for this in audio!

This is the first of Julia Quinn's books I ever read and one of the first 'modern' historical romances I ever read about a decade or so ago, when I was just starting to read the genre. As a result, I have a bit of a soft spot for it, but that's not surprising, considering it's a terrific book.

It's a classic enemies-to-lovers/compromised-into-marriage story and remains one of my favourite HRs and one of my favourites of the Bridgerton series (it's up there with "When He Was Wicked"). I admit that I haven't read it for some time, and I have forgotten bits, so this new audio was a fantastic reminder.

The relationship between Anthony and Kate is brilliantly done - the sexual chemistry just sizzles between them right from the start, and the author does a superb job of showing both characters falling head-over-heels with each other while trying to maintain their outward animosity.

I loved that Anthony is so family-oriented; there are so many dysfunctional families in romance that it's refreshing to find one that isn't. He's also, quite simply, sex-on-legs.

Rosalyn Landor does an incredible job in the audio version. It's a given that she's technically superb - she's always spot on when it comes to things like differentiation and pacing - but where she scores over practically ever other narrator of historical romance is that she 'gets' it like no-one else. The way she brings the emotional content of the story to the fore so vividly always amazes me and I had a lump in my throat several times while listening to this one.

I'm sure I don't need to convince any reader of HR that this is a fabulous book, or anyone who listens to romance audios regularly that the narration is outstanding.

But I still had to shout about it, because it's just THAT good.

Good story but..

Call me a purist, but a period story set in England really should have vaguely correct grammar & vocabulary. Annoyingly although this series of stories are fun, the grammatical errors "look out the window" and what sounds like wrong word usage or st least too modern "bum" just grates.

I haven't looked up the author who is new to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if she's American. Still I'm always surprised that things like these aren't picked up by sub-editors, editors, printers etc..!!! Such a shame as such minor errors create a disproportionate annoyance.

Excellent

I do love a period romance. Lovable characters, and we'll paced lengthy novel. The narrator did make Anthony seem much older than 29 but otherwise beautifully delivered.
