Staff Reviews


Regency romance fans rejoice! The Other Miss Bridgerton is a delight and exactly what we all need to get through the depressing realities of life in 2018. We’ve got pirates, scandal, nobility, and one very stubborn woman to contend with in Quinn’s newest Bridgerton novel.
Poppy Bridgerton, while visiting her friend along the Dorset coast, finds herself kidnapped by pirates and is now helplessly en route to Portugal. Despite her belief that her situation is deplorable and clearly the roguishly handsome captain should just let her go, she is stuck on a two week voyage which is sure to destroy her reputation and any hopes of ever making a good match.
Captain Andrew James Rokesby is trying very hard to ensure that his captive does not find out that he is a Rokesby and by extension nobility and a very close friend to the Bridgerton family. On a secret mission from the crown to smuggle state secrets under the guise of privateering, Andrew cannot simply let this woman go, even if he knows the end result will likely be that he will be forced to marry her to save her reputation. Can he stand to be married to a woman who NEVER stops talking, and can she bear to spend another moment with her handsome but infuriatingly dismissive captor?
This book is fun. The kind of book that makes you laugh and smile like an idiot. The kind of book you never really want to end but you are also okay with ending because, unlike in real life, everything ends well and everyone leaves happy. If I had to translate my feelings of this book into emoji characters it would be nothing but heart eyes.

Description


She was in the wrong place...

Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers’ hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain’s bed…

He found her at the wrong time...

Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he’s stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real—and his duty to the Crown means he's stuck with her. 

Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?

 When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal—though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew’s secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart…?
