Tuesday Titles 165..

Other Mrs Bridgerton
The Other Miss Bridgerton: Julia Quinn
Described by some as a modern-day Georgette Heyer, so far I haven't found a Julia Quinn book I didn't enjoy. This one is no exception. 

She was in the wrong place...
Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgertonwill only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers' hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain's bed...
He found her at the wrong time...
Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he's stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real-and his duty to the Crown means he's stuck with her.
Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?
When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal-though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew's secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart...?

Definitely a book to curl up with under a blanket on the sofa if you fancy an enjoyable mix of historical romance and comedy. Plus, pirates! This is out on 20th November if you fancy a feel-good read, perhaps to snuggle up with over the festive period.
