From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series. In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty: Love ignores every rule…

*Formerly titled WILDBLOSSOM* "An English Duke and a spirited Wild West beauty - that's a combination you just can't beat! This is a story filled with adventure, humor, and people who are completely out-of place in fascinating places. The characters are enchanting and real and will have you cheering for them throughout every delightful page!" ~ CATHERINE COULTER, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Impetuous, courageous Shelby Matthews moves from Deadwood to Cody, Wyoming to manage her father's new ranch. She plots an outrageous scheme to raise funds for improvements by playing poker. Cynical Geoffrey Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, arrives in Wyoming for one last adventure before he submits to an arranged marriage to save the family estates. When Geoff steps off the train in Cody, Shelby thinks he'll be an easy mark in her poker game. However, he quickly wins half her ranch and has no intention of letting her out of the bet. It's the beginning of a magical, impossible romance that takes the couple across the sea to England, where Shelby performs with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and Geoff, now a Duke, wrestles with conflicts between duty and the painful longings of his heart. Author's note: Geoff is the descendant of Andrew Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, in OF ONE HEART. "A rootin'-tootin', rollicking romance between a Wild West beauty and a deliciously dangerous Duke. I LOVED it!" ~ New York Times Bestselling Author BERTRICE SMALL
