Kate Sheffield is determined that her younger sister, Edwina, will not wed Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, the most notorious rake in all of England, despite the prediction printed in the latest society papers.

The Marquis of Bridgerton has other plans. As the Incomparable of the Season, Edwina is the perfect choice for a bride. Theirs will be a marriage of convenience; his money and title will provide the security her family needs, and she will be the ideal mother of his children.

All of Anthonys carefully made plans go awry, however, when he finds he has fallen madly and irrevocably in love with Kate. She haunts his sleepless nights and bedevils him by day. Nowhere is he safe from her bewitching smile and maddening schemes, and though he tries to court her sister, he finds he can think of no one save Kate.

From one hilarious antic to another, Kate and Anthony fight their growing attraction for each other, as they are both determined to win the battle of wills. When it seems as though Anthony may ignore his hearts longings, Fate intervenes. Perhaps its too late Will they fail to heed the whispers of their hearts?

Captivating and alluring, THE VISCOUNT WHO LOVED ME is vintage Julia Quinn. Through their love for each other, Kate and Anthony let go of the past and overcome their fears and uncertainties, learning to seize the day and cherish the love they are blessed with. Hilarious and yet incredibly heart-warming, this is a tale that will charm the most discriminating heart. Brava, Ms. Quinn! SENSUAL (Dec., 380 pp., $5.99)
