Book Review: The Viscount Who Loved Me

by Julia Quinn 

3 Stars 

The Viscount Who Loved Me is the second book within the Bridgerton series written by Julia Quinn, placed in the Regency era in the year 1814. This book is a romance novel best fitted for young adults. It is a great beginning to reading romance books and for people who like period pieces as well. The responsibility of being “man of the house” fell to Antony when his father passed away. This unfortunate event led to the 18-year-old becoming emotionally closed off, especially towards love. When he found himself ready to enter married life, he did not dwell on the possibility of love being a factor, as he despised the idea. As London’s season kicked off, fitting his standards perfectly was that of the diamond of the season, Edwina. However, her older sister Kate stood in the way of their courtship, finding the Viscount to be unsuitable for marriage if he does not want love. This leads to many unexpected events and for the Viscount to reflect on his emotions and his marriage standard.

The Viscount Who Loved Me is a romance book that I read after watching the Bridgerton show. Like many adaptations, there were situations where the book was better and others where the show was better; however, this book did not disappoint and was easily a quick read but with that being said, I would not repeat the book after having read it already once. Even though I would not re-read this book, it was better than the last (The Duke and I).
