Based on the phenomenal growth of Quinn′s popularity, and her four-week stint on the New York Times bestseller list with Romancing Mr Bridgerton, it′s the perfect time to revisit Ms Quinn′s ′splendid′ storytelling. American heiress Emma Dunster has always been fun-loving and independent with no wish to settle into marriage. She plans to enjoy her Season in London in more unconventional ways than husband-hunting. But this time Emma′s high-jinks lead her into dangerous temptation... Alexander Ridgely, the Duke of Ashbourne, is a notorious rake who carefully avoids the risk of love...until he plants one reckless kiss on the sensuous lips of this high-spirited innocent...and condemns himself to delicious torment. Little does he know that his passion has touched the very soul of the lovely enchantress...and committed them both to a lifetime of splendid ecstasy.

1.0 Splendid by Julia Quinn
Can def tell this is the author's first book. Just read "Ten Things I Love About You" and can (gladly) tell the maturation of Julia Quinn. In bits and parts I could feel the beginnings of the usual Julia Quinn humor emerging, i.e. Bridgerton series. Surface writing, not connected, and because of t...

Alright, here we go again, right?"Splendid" is quite a nice Regency Novel. It's definitely 'fluff' and very easy to read, and if you have a few hours and just want to be entertained, it will be a good book for the moment.General comments:1. Characters. The Characters were alright. Emma was a great ...

Eu sou suspeitíssima para falar de Julia Quinn, pois ela é uma de minhas autoras favoritas, devido ao seu estilo leve, romântico e muito bem humorado de escrever seus livros. Splendid foi o seu primeiro livro escrito, por isso eu pensei que ele seria bem bobinho e mal escrito. Engano meu, graças a D...
