The Viscount Who Loved Me

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn Book Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Anthony Bridgerton, in the second of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.


This time the gossip columnists have it wrong. London’s most elusive bachelor Anthony Bridgerton hasn’t just decided to marry—he’s even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended’s older sister, Kate Sheffield—the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate’s the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams...

Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands—and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate’s determined to protect her sister—but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony’s lips touch hers, she’s suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...

- A little repetitive with all the “playful death threats”?5 star

I watched the Netflix adaptation and decided to read the books to see what’s next in the story. I was kind of put out by all the constant “I’m going to murder him/her”. It wasn’t funny and it makes the read a bit annoying. The author should show a bit more variety in her writing of the dialog. Other than that the book was okay.

- Sweet story5 star


- The Viscount Who Loved Me3 star

I think it was over done and the end was ridiculous .

- Excellent read5 star

Didn’t think after the first one another good romance in the family would be possible! But the book didn’t disappoint! Very good!

- Sparkling dialogue5 star

100% better than the first book in the series.

- Loved This5 star

I love historical romance. I also love a good enemies to lovers romance. The banter between Anthony and Kate is so perfect. I laughed so much reading this book. I cannot wait to read more in this series.

- Entertaining from beginning to end!5 star

Anthony is one of the best characters in this series and the entire plot of him finally finding love is one of the most attention-grabbing storylines ever. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & will mostly likely be reading it again!!

- Must Read5 star

I loved this book even more than the first!

- Love Bridgerton5 star

Okay I am sold on the Bridgerton train. TOOT TOOT! I’m here for it. This one was even better than the first. Anthony is the best kind of love interest, I just loved him so much. He was so sure he would marry out of necessity and not love. He tried so hard to not give in to his immediate spark with Kate (his fiancé’s sister). And Kate was a stubborn, imperfectly perfect heroine. Two people you just want to root for! I cannot wait for the third bridgerton. This series is so much fun! I listened to the audiobook and found myself giggling so many times while doing housework. Five stars :)

- Couldn’t stop!!5 star

I could not put this down. I finished the book in two days! Loved it!

- Love4 star

It was great, seeing how I went from the show straight to book#2 just see how Anthony’s life would turn out and it was a bit predictable from the begging of who he was going to fall in love with but I mean it was a great book. Not sure that I want to read the next book because I was aching for more of Simon and Daphne and although they made small appearances it wasn’t enough for me lol but you’ll enjoy this one. 🙌🏼

- Thoroughly enjoyed!5 star

I have to say that I have never smiled and laughed so much through a romance novel as I did with this book. It really isn’t a quality I thought I needed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it’s an easy read, I finished it in just under 2 days. However that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some depth to it. The writing is done well and I lost myself in the moment on more than one occasion. The author does a great job in conveying emotions and really building the world around the characters. It may not be a huge fantasy world, but I think it does justice to England life in the 1800s all the same. ( not that I am an expert, so I don’t actually know, but that’s the fun thing about imagination.) I’m starting the third book and I cannot wait!

- Loved it!5 star

I loved reading this book! I’m new to reading romance novels and I have a new found appreciation for it. I’m ready to start Book 3!

- Fun, but....5 star

A little formulaic. But fun! A few eye popping moments. Diving into the next one.

- The best in the series!5 star

Such an amazing read! Wish I could read it again after just finished it! I think I may, it is sooo good!

- Best book in the entire Bridgerton series!!5 star

I’ve read the entire series, and the Viscount Who Loved Me is the gem and best book of all! Kate is the ideal heroine and Anthony the ideal hero, and together, these characters are a match made in heaven. Kate is the best written character and female lead in the entire series, and the love-hate relationship between her and the Viscount is like Pride & Prejudice all over again. A true gem that I can read over and over. After this book, An Offer from a Gentleman (the Cinderella story) and Romancing Mr. Bridgerton are a close second and third favorite.

- Great read, humor times 1005 star

Great book! Love the games, humor, and accidental romance!

Kayjaycat - Loved it5 star

Looked up this series after binge watching Bridgerton on Netflix... I can’t say I was disappointed loved the story and was completely captured by the characters.... after reading reviews I was surprised to see people worried about accuracy with the period... seriously it’s a fictional novel not a text book that aside i highly recommended this book.... word of warning the epilogue contains spoilers on future books which was disappointing 😢

Skillz1977 - Go Anthony5 star

I absolutely love this book. The relationship between Anthony & Kate is fantastic. I couldn’t put it down. Love it!!! Hurry Up Season 2 Bridgerton.

Claypot2850 - Loved this couple5 star

Can’t wait for the next one

Lilyxx04 - Absolutely fantastic5 star

I couldn't put the book down. I love Anthony fell in love with him reading this and Kate has such a sarcastic and fiery personality. I love them and Anthony's love and protection to both Kate and his family is amazing. Definitely worth reading. 100% will reread.

BonBan26 - 🤩5 star


Tallulah44 - I’m in Love5 star

Anthony Bridgerton is! How can you not read this book without falling for him. His love for his family and Kate is unmatched. A wonderful book on my favourite Bridgerton. A satisfying ending, however, it leaves the reader wanting more. A look into his life with Kate as they began their family and raised their children would have been the icing on the cake. In all it is definitely a must-read!

HeyerF4n - Delightful5 star

I don’t have Netflix and so I haven’t seen Bridgerton but the hype about it brought me to Julia Quinn’s Author page and as the second book was discounted I thought I would give it a try. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed the family element and teasing between siblings, the humour and was pleased that the bedroom scenes took place after marriage which seems more historically accurate than many of the books set in this period. Anthony might have been a rake but has redeeming features and Kate’s witty sarcasm is a delight. I did find it disappointing that a story that was first published in 2015 has not been updated to remove typos though.

AmyLea24 - Charming Book5 star

After watching Bridgerton on Netflix, I decided to read this second book and really enjoyed it. I felt like I could picture Anthony and all characters really well and also visualise the places too, this makes reading so much easier and more enjoyable. I’d definitely recommend this book and also the tv series! Can’t wait to watch this book once it’s made into a series too.

Josie-Jo-Lo - Brilliant book!5 star

Loved this book, couldn’t put it down.
