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…
