At 22, Hyacinth Bridgerton is perfectly happy single. She's brilliant, clever, outspoken and the one Gareth St. Clair needs to translate his grandmother's diary from Italian.

By uncovering the truth about his family's past and his birth, Gareth can move into the future unencumbered by emotional baggage. When Hyacinth agrees to help, it opens some unexpected doors into their hearts.

Gareth adores her brazen barbs and honesty, and Hyacinth finds him easy to admire. Through his grandmother's words they learn how complicated life and relationships can be—and that what they need is not found in a book but in one another's arms.

Here's another utterly delightful Bridgerton tale featuring a highly "modern" woman, whose warmth, vivacity and intelligence shine through on every page. Quinn pairs Hyacinth with an ideal hero and then places them in the center of a passion-filled, intriguing mystery that's sure to shoot to the top of the bestseller charts.
