Relentlessly pursued by match-making mamas and their charges, Simon Bassett, the handsome Duke of Hastings, has grown tired of the societal chase. Tired too is the lovely Daphne Bridgerton, whose matrimonially minded mother is set on finding her daughter the perfect husband. Neither Simon nor Daphne is happy with this annoying state of affairs and both would give anything for a little peace and quiet. Their mutual wish for a respite from the ton's marriage mart leads to a pretend engagement--a scheme that is threatened with exposure by Daphne's suspicious older brother, who happens to know Simon's way with women very well.
The two never anticipated that a mutual attraction would lead to the very thing they set out to avoid--a wedding. But Simon fears that his painful past may keep him from being able to truly love anyone. And though Daphne cares for him deeply, she won't settle for anything less than his heart.
Well,I was really hoping to read this book because I've read many positive reviews about it...This is the first book about the Bridgerton family and it tells the story of Daphne, the 4th Bridgerton "child"...It was very funny to read it...Both Daphne and her older brother Anthony had lists maid by their mother Lady Bridgerton of possible suiters for getting married...But neither of them wanted to think of marriage and they always tried to escape...But that was until Daphne met Simon, Anthony's best friend...Simon became everything that she always wanted and so after some funny atempts of protection by her 3 older brothers Daphne got married to Simon...but with their marriage came Simon's problems...Problems that only Daphne could help him to resolve.
