First Comes Scandal By Julia Quinn
Series: A Bridgertons Prequel
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Avon Books
Format: Ebook/Print/ Audio
Continuing her delightful Bridgertons Prequel series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn presents the latest love story between the Bridgerton and Rokesby families.
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 #3
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…
Praise for Julia Quinn’s Book’s
“There are quite a few romance novelists out there proving that fun and sexy need not be mutually exclusive from smart, nuanced, and empowering — and of those, it’s safe to say that Julia Quinn reigns supreme. Often referred to as our generation’s Jane Austen, the author’s work has always stood out from the pack, winning over countless readers with its wit, humor, and lovable cast of characters.” Shondaland
“Quinn is known for her witty charm . . . . She’s also a romance master, able to set up realistic obstacles that tug at the heartstrings while keeping the hero and heroine believably apart. With the Bridgertons, Quinn has created a family so likable and attractive, a community so vibrant and engaging, that we want to crawl into the pages and know them.” NPR Books
“Simply delightful, filled with charm, humor, and wit.” Kirkus Reviews
“If you’ve never read romance novels, start here.” Washington Post
“simmering sexuality, unforgettable characters, and deliciously dry wit.” Booklist
About the Author
#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don’t read (or write) romance, and if you watch reruns of the game show The Weakest Link you might just catch her winning the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.
In 2020, Netflix will premiere Bridgerton, based on her popular series of novels about the Bridgerton family.
