Happy Monday all!
Sharing you with today my mom’s thoughts on the prequel to Bridgerton I’m feeling a little out of it seem as though my parents have watched the show and I have not.
My Mom’s Thoughts
If you just finished binge watching “Bridgerton” and wanted more but a new Bridgerton, you won’t be disappointed by FIRST COMES SCANDAL, a Bridgerton prequel, by Julia Quinn
Georgiana Bridgerton, Daphne’s aunt, has been kidnapped by Freddie Oakes who hopes to force her to marry him and get him out of debt. She manages to escape but her reputation is ruined. Her godfather and neighbor Rokesby summons his youngest son Nicholas from Edinburgh where he is studying to be a doctor and suggests he marry Georgiana, a childhood friend. All does not go smoothly and there are a few bits of mayhem, silliness, misunderstandings, old fashioned English nonsense, and sex. This is after all a period romance!💕
About the Books
She was given two choices….
Georgiana Bridgerton isn’t against the idea of marriage. She’d just thought she’d have some say in the matter. But with her reputation hanging by a thread after she’s abducted for her dowry, Georgie is given two options: live out her life as a spinster or marry the rogue who has ruined her life.
Enter option number three…
As the fourth son of an earl, Nicholas Rokesby is prepared to chart his own course. He has a life in Edinburgh, where he’s close to completing his medical studies, and he has no time – or interest – to find a wife. But when he discovers that Georgie Bridgerton – his literal girl next door – is facing ruin, he knows what he must do.
A marriage of convenience…
It might not have been the most romantic of proposals, but Nicholas never thought she’d say no. Georgie doesn’t want to be anyone’s sacrifice, and besides, they could never think of each other as anything more than childhood friends…or could they?
But as they embark upon their unorthodox courtship they discover a new twist to the age-old rhyme. First comes scandal, then comes marriage. But after that comes love…
Hope y’all have a lovely day! XOXO Berit💐￼
