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 . . .

La primera novela de Julia Quinn que me gusta--de verdad.Apenas tuvo dos o tres diálogos sin sentido (de esos típicos de la autora, que nada tienen que ver con la trama y sólo funcionan de relleno, y atrasan la trama), y no fueron demasiado fastidiosos como para abandonar del todo el libro (como me ...
I love this booooook. It's the best Bridgerton since Benedict and definitely the steamiest Quinn I've seen. Whoa. Only complaints: it's good Michael got past his guilt, but he could have seen that Francesca was also struggling a lot sooner. He was more than a little manipulative towards the end, too...
Francesca's book. Had wondered how this one was going to play out given that she is described as married in the previous 2 books. Interesting moral issues
