• Très chers lecteurs, quelle saison !
    Au rythme des bals et des réceptions, je vous ai narré le feuilleton haletant de la folle romance entre Mlle Daphné Bridgerton et Simon, le ténébreux duc de Hastings. Valses langoureuses, rebondissements cocasses et bagarres mémorables nous auront tenus en haleine jusqu'à l'épilogue d'un romantisme échevelé.
    Aurons-nous le temps de reprendre notre souffle ? Il est à craindre que non, car il se chuchote déjà dans Londres qu'Anthony, le frère de Daphné, serait décidé à convoler lui aussi. Hélas, l'élue a une soeur odieuse qui s'oppose catégoriquement à cette union en raison du passé libertin du vicomte.
    Cela nous promet bien des péripéties.
    Et comme il reste six Bridgerton à marier, votre dévouée chroniqueuse a de beaux jours devant elle. Ne perdez pas le fil, chers lecteurs, la saga ne fait que commencer !

  • Les jeunes gens ne se bousculent pas pour demander la main de Hyacinthe, la cadette des Bridgerton, trop fine mouche, trop sincère. Certes, mieux vaut être seule que mal accompagnée, il n'empêche qu'elle commence à se demander si elle ne va pas finir vieille fille. Et ce n'est pas la rencontre avec Gareth Saint-Clair, aristocrate à la réputation sulfureuse, qui risque d'y changer quoi que ce soit. Encore que... La découverte d'un journal intime en italien qu'elle se propose de lui traduire pourrait bien jouer un rôle inattendu.
    Contrairement à la plupart de ses congénères, Gregory, le benjamin des Bridgerton, ne vit que dans l'attente du « grand amour ». Il croit l'avoir trouvé en la personne de lady Hermione Watson, éblouissante beauté dont, hélas, le coeur est déjà pris.

  • Depuis que sa meilleure amie, Pénélope Featherington, a convolé en justes noces, Éloïse, la rebelle de la fratrie Bridgerton, s'interroge : les commères n'auraient-elles pas raison de prétendre qu'elle ne trouvera pas de mari ? Oh, elle en a reçu des propositions au fil des ans ! Elle les a toutes refusées, sous prétexte que ses prétendants n'étaient pas... parfaits. Une exigence ridicule, bien sûr.
    Inquiète à l'idée qu'il ne soit déjà trop tard, Éloïse reçoit à point nommé une invitation de la part de sir Phillip Crane, un veuf avec qui elle entretient une relation épistolaire. La proposition est d'autant plus audacieuse qu'il envisagerait de se remarier... Sans en souffler mot à quiconque, elle décide de se rendre chez cet homme qu'elle n'a jamais rencontré.
    De son côté, sa soe ur Francesca file le parfait amour avec son mari, le comte de Kilmartin, dans leur château en Écosse. Elle n'imagine pas qu'un événement inconcevable va bouleverser le cours de sa vie, pour le pire et pour le meilleur.

His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth''s sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past and the key to his future. The problem is - it''s written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word. All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She''s fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken and - according to Gareth - probably best in small doses. But there''s something about her - something charming and vexing - that grabs him and won''t quite let go. But rest assured, he''s spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual - an annually discordant - Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth''s every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. However, as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary - but in each other; snd that there is nothing as simple - or as complicated - as a single, perfect kiss.
