When He Was Wicked

When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn Book Summary

In every life there is a turning point . . .

A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one's life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London's most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.

After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca's surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.

But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

- So good! My favorite book in the series5 star

I’ve been reading all the books and I will say that this one is definitely my favorite they’re so well written and the characters are so relatable

- Absolutely amazing5 star

This book was by far my favorite book in series ! I wasn’t to excited to read it because Francesca is hardly in the other novels, but this took me by surprise. This book was steamy, heart wrenching and had me in tears a few times. I don’t advise skipping the second epilogue at the very end because it truly did it for me, pushed it pasted my expectations. Absolutely amazing!

- Wow5 star

Unexpectedly good! Everything of this book was different, and surprising. I enjoyed it since the very beginning to te final word of it.

- Wonderful story5 star

I was not looking forward to Francesca’s story. In truth because she was the least interesting sibling. But from the very start I was hooked. Each time I read these books I think it can get better than the he last book. But each time I fall in love all over again.

- Fav5 star

This was my favorite so far. So true to life

- Wickedly Good5 star

This is Francesca’s story and it’s a very full one. A love match to a Scottish earl that leaves her widowed just two years later is just the beginning of woes that befall her. Luckily there come better days. Michael Stirling has been in love with Francesca since he first saw her, but she became the wife of his cousin. When tragedy strikes and he assumes the title, he promptly takes off to India for several years to try distance himself from the woman he can never have. When he returns, will he find his feelings have lessened? Or will he do what needs be done to claim the love of his life?

- Happy Ending after all 😍5 star

I love the story and the development of each character. Francesca may be frustrating at times but it was so worth it at the end. I wish the author added longer epilogues like the other books. I just wanted more and hate to leave to my imagination;)

- Wickedly Slow5 star

Francesca’s story was heartbreaking at the beginning. The two major loses in her life seemed more than one person should be made to bear. Michael on the other hand suffered as badly as she did in his own devoted way. This was a lovely story however it seemed that it was a bit slow moving If I’m honest it may have been because Francesca drove me crazy being in denial and constantly running away. I was exhausted by the time I finally got to the Happy Ending.

- Amazing5 star

I have been told this is not a popular opinion but this is my favorite novel in the series. The heartache, the pining, the development of their romantic arc...just everything was perfection.

- Superbly Developed Characters5 star

This is probably my all-time favorite historical romance novel. They are both so compatible and have such chemistry. Love it!

addictive series

Lilyxx04 - Absolutely amazing5 star

This book is one of my favourite books in the series along with the viscount who loved me. The beginning is beautifully written and it gives us a better insight into the character of Francesca as she has little mention in any of the other books. Therefore in her book the other Bridgerton siblings are rarely mentioned. The passion she has with Micheal is surreal! Got to say he is my favourite bridgerton by marriage. This is a very steamy book. It made me cry and laugh and love this book a lot! In addition I read the 2nd epilogue a few days ago and omg my emotions bounced up and down. Got to say this book is definitely worth the read it's very different to the others but I guess that's what makes it so amazing.

Birklands5 - The BEST bridgerton book5 star

In the series Francesca isn’t in it much and I wasn’t too bothered about reading this one but omg I am obsessed!!!! Can’t wait for them to cover this story on Bridgerton 😍🥰🤣
