Описание

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...

    I liked this one, but not quite as much as the others in the series. The butlers and the cat were honestly the best part. I did like Georgiana’s interest in medicine like Nicholas, while his proposal was not for romantic reasons, I think they obviously suit really well.

    I love the book and characters but the plot felt like it was missing something. Any hardships the characters faced seemed like they were overcome to quickly.

    I'll let you know this -during this horrible time of stress, this was a perfectly fluffy, funny, yet thoughtful read and I really needed it!This book had a wonderful blend of romance, women's rights issues (during that century), and, heat without going too far overboard. For this century and the two families involved, it was a believable story.*ARC Supplied by the publisher.

    1791. An unusual beginning! Nicholas Rokesby has been studying in Edinborough to be a doctor. When his father calls him home urgently he little knew the proposal his father had in mind. He was imagining one sort of tragedy and was gob smacked by something quite different.Local neighbor and his father's goddaughter Georgiana Bridgerton, whom Nicolas regarded as a sister, has against her will been placed in a compromising position by an impecunious admirer, Freddie Oakes.This had a brilliant beginning, some truly funny moments, and a feisty heroine who had expected to marry for love. The various cat inclusions were delightfully different bordering on hilarious.Our hero started off fabulously and then in my mind lagged, although he does keep reviewing his attitudes towards women.We see enough of Georgina to understand she has a truly enquiring mind that could take action when needed. The last part of the book is a comment on women of the times, particularly medical aspirants, not being allowed to work equally alongside men.So a few tropes came together; marriage of convenience, virgin couples (quite unexpected and nicely done--a five star inclusion), and women's place in 18th century England.I just felt the last part of the book didn't quite live up to the fabulous beginning. A charming read however and a must read for those who love Quinn's Rockesby / Bridgerton series.A HarperCollins ARC via NetGalley

    Thanks to Edelweiss, I was able to read this clever confection a little early and it is by far my favorite Bridgerton prequel to date. Between a baby Colin cameo and two delightful friends-to-lovers I just don't see any contest! This low-drama historical romance is perfect for our current world affairs and I wholeheartedly recommend a read or listen (Quinn's audiobook readers are also stellar!).

    Nicholas Rokesby's father summons him home from medical school in Edinburgh and orders him to propose to Georgiana Bridgerton, who is embroiled in scandal after being abducted by a scoundrel. Nicholas and Georgiana have know each other all their lives, and are good friends, but they neither wants to marry the other. Or do they?A fun, frothy romance, with delightful characters full of charm and wit.
