Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places... This is not one of those times. Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday. Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should... Or not. There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either. But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor... Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For all the Bridgerton family fans who worried the series was over once all the siblings’ stories were told, prepare to rejoice!” San Francisco Book Review
“Funny, charming, witty, and wildly romantic. This is Regency romance at its best, with strong characters, fast-paced action, and lots of drama between two unlikely sweethearts.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Powered by a surfeit of dazzling wit and graced with a cast of unforgettable characters, Because of Miss Bridgerton is top-drawer, polished-to-perfection Quinn.” Booklist (starred review)
“Quinn skips back a generation in her bestselling Bridgerton family series…George and Billie are clear preludes to their descendants, and their love hinges on both their self-discoveries and their interactions.” Publishes Weekly
“This lively, effervescent Georgian tale takes place a generation before Quinn’s wildly popular Bridgerton series and nicely adds to the family history.” Library Journal
“George and Billie are both likable characters, and Quinn is an accomplished writer…For fans of the Bridgerton clan and for readers who like character-driven novels.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Rosalyn Landor brings dignity and subtle humor to this sweet ‘at-long-last’ romanc…The even pacing of Landor’s narration illuminates textual detail and gently underscores the author’s wit. Landor’s precise characterizations cue the listener to Billy and George’s slowly developing attraction over the course of days and weeks. Landor knows how to ramp up tension with a precisely timed conversational pause and perfectly delivers the catch in the throat that accompanies the shy thanks of a girl at her very first ball as she receives her very first compliment from a boy.” AudioFile
