Julia Quinn, The Viscount Who Loved Me

“She hated that she was still so desperate for a glimpse of him, but it had been this way for years.”

Rika - (The Unpretentious Reader) I was searching for Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, I was devastated to realize it doesn't really exist

Maybe it does exist though but Goodreads doesn't know about it.. Just like Unicorns

Feby Thank you for adding me, Mrs. Quinn. I adore your book. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is one of my favorite :)


Laurie Hi Julia,
I am absolutely in love with your books! Every one of them I read captured my attention and made me wish that I was really living in old days London. They were fun and witty, my favorites had to be the Duke and I, and Everything and the Moon. Most of them I read I gave five stars because they had so many different characters with different personality's. It was just so much fun reading your work.
Thank you for your genius books!
Laurie
