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 and heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant and 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…

Rating: Narration – A+; Content – B

Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton family are among the most iconic creations in historical romance in recent years. Throughout eight books (and then a set of subsequently published Second Epilogues), readers followed the exploits of Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne et al as they found the loves of their lives and their happy ever afters.

Now, in Because of Miss Bridgerton, the author returns to her much-loved family to kick off a prequel series set in the late Georgian period, The Rokesbys, who are a neighbouring family with whom the Bridgertons have always been very close. The eponymous Miss Bridgerton – Billie – is the older sister of Edmund, father of the Regency era siblings; here, he’s just fifteen and still away at school.
