Favorite Books Highlight: The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn

With all the great books I’ve had to read I haven’t had much time to re-read a lot of my favorite books so I haven’t blogged about them.  But there are definitely some that deserve a highlight.  Today’s highlight is The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn.

This is definitely a 5 star pick book.  The Bridgerton family series is one of my favorite series and I’ve read all of Julia Quinn’s books.  This book is actually second in the series but was the first one I read.  If you doubt me, I have to say this one was so good that I lent it to someone, never got it back and went out and bought a second copy because I love re-reading it so often.

Here is the short blurb from Julia Quinn’s website:

Kate Sheffield is determined to keep Anthony Bridgerton from seducing her sister. But what if the notorious viscount decides to seduce her instead?

A few of the things I love are that this book makes you laugh.  I’m not one of those into romance books that are mostly sex scenes.  I like to have some story and a little extra something.  If the book makes me laugh then it’s usually one that makes it onto my keep shelves (Julie Garwood’s historical romances are other books that do it for me too).  I love Kate, the heroine in this book, because she isn’t the beautiful woman, she isn’t graceful and she can’t play any instrument beautifully.  She’s also been known to leave her dancing partner with aching feet so how can you not love it when she catches the interest of the wealthy and handsome viscount who could have almost any woman he wants?

After reading this one I quickly went and bought up the rest of the books that were out at the time and anxiously awaited each new book.  I will admit I didn’t find the newer ones as good but it could be because my favorite siblings were Anthony, Colin and Benedict so of course those were my favorite stories in the series.  If you love a good romance story and want some humor tossed in this is definitely one to pick up.

    I too love Julia Quinn! I was able to get all of her original books too! I would have kept them but lent them to my sister and she gave them away when she moved! Hurrumph!
    I do need to get back to reading the last few that I have to go!

    Gave them away?! Bummer. She is absolutely one of my favorite authors.

    I haven’t read her books but wouldn’t want to miss a 5 star book. Thanks for the review!
