I have just started reading Julia Quinn, and I really enjoy her books so far. Kate Sheffield was my favorite heroine thus far, and I really enjoyed this second book in the Bridgerton series. I find her female characters refreshing, smart and strong, and the writing is excellent, humorous and really enjoyable! I have avoided historical romance for years, and I now regret avoiding Julia Quinn by default.
I would highly recommend this book along with the first in the Bridgerton series. I have also enjoyed the Blydon books, and just started on To Catch an Heiress. 40 pages in and I am loving it!

Book Two in Julia Quinn’s standout Bridgertons series delivers the heat I always desire in a historical romance. While it took me a while to warm up to Anthony and Kate, in the end the Bridgertons had me cheering for any of them, as always. This book probably contains one of the funniest family moments I have ever read about: the Pall Mall competition had me literally rolling on the ground, gasping for breath, dying of laughter. I wanted more from the Bridgertons—they are what make this series so wonderful—but this was still a fun read, and I will sure be continuing to read this series as always!

Sometimes (to me) the romances that begin with the hero and heroine not liking each other start to seem all the same, but this one did not. I liked their repartee and the fact that although they argued, they could both admit that the other had an admirable quality here and there. They are both good, caring people, and I felt they deserved to be happy.
I also quite liked how at first you really think Anthony must be a big jerk the way he talks and treats Kate, but that the reader, along with Kate, begins to see the other side of him and really like him, and he actually does become one of those mythical reformed rakes that in all the romance novels supposedly make the best husbands. :-D
