1 . Very cute!
Posted June 12, 2010 by cozy_fan , USAA good Bridgerton story - both Colin and Penelope are very cute and the story is entertaining!
2 . Take a bow Lady Whistledown...
Posted March 10, 2010 by Sashapasha1 , SeattleDefinitely in my top four by Ms. Quinn. This book is a must read if you want to read any of her other books...the infamous Lady Whistledown is notorious for making unexpected appearances in many of Quinn's other books (making me giggle with glee everytime). The characters are so real and endearing. "There's a little bit of Penelope in all of us"...as my mother has come to say.

Excerpt from Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Bridgertons Series: #4) by Julia Quinn
Matchmaking mamas are united in their glee -- Colin Bridgerton has returned from Greece!
For those gentle (and ignorant) readers who are new to town this year, Mr. Bridgerton is third in the legendary string of eight Bridgerton siblings (hence the name Colin, beginning with C; he follows Anthony and Benedict, and precedes Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, and Hyacinth).
Although Mr. Bridgerton holds no noble title and is unlikely ever to do so (he is seventh in line for the title of Viscount Bridgerton, behind the two sons of the current viscount, his elder brother Benedict, and his three sons) he is still considered one of the prime catches of the season, due to his fortune, his face, his form, and most of all, his charm. It is difficult, however, to predict whether Mr. Bridgerton will succumb to matrimonial bliss this season; he is certainly of an age to marry (three-and-thirty), but he has never shown a decided interest in any lady of proper parentage, and to make matters even more complicated, he has an appalling tendency to leave London at the drop of a hat, bound for some exotic destination.
LADY WHISTLEDOWN'S SOCIETY PAPERS, 2 APRIL 1824
"Look at this!" Portia Featherington squealed. "Colin Bridgerton is back!"
Penelope looked up from her needlework. Her mother was clutching the latest edition of Lady Whistledown's Society Papers the way Penelope might clutch, say, a rope while hanging off a building. "I know," she murmured.
Portia frowned. She hated when someone -- anyone -- was aware of gossip before she was. "How did you get to Whistledown before I did? I told Briarly to set it aside for me and not to let anyone touch--"
"I didn't see it in Whistledown," Penelope interrupted, before her mother went off to castigate the poor, beleaguered butler. "Felicity told me. Yesterday afternoon. Hyacinth Bridgerton told her."
"Your sister spends a great deal of time over at the Bridgerton household."
"As do I," Penelope pointed out, wondering where this was leading.
