Fifteen years have passed, but the Bridgertons are as devious and diabolical as ever when it comes to life on the croquet field.

This is an epilogue to the book. However it really shouldn't be read until after Romancing Mr. Bridgerton because it contains info that can be considered spoilers.
The Viscount Who Loved Me is a historical romance by Julia Quinn that tells the story of a dashing duke with a secret fear and a wallflower lady with an outspoken mind.

First off, let me just claim that the cover is still gorgeous!!! I really like the edition I got! I assume that the lady in the cover is Kate reading Lady Whistledown's column, haha.

Speaking of,...much like the first, I am still entertained by the snippets of Lady Whistledown's "news" before every chapter. I believe it's one of
I've read this before, but this was my first time in audiobook form. Clearly, I must have found the story pretty good to try it again, so I doubt I need further details on the plot.

So, instead, I will talk about the audiobook format. I thought the narrators was perfect to capture each of the characters' voices and personalities. I believe there was a main female narrator and a male voice narrator, which really makes the performance more...real.
“This is Pall Mall. There is no fair play.”

It was like a mild ‘The War of the Roses’. I couldn’t find it amusing, but it comes from my personality. My husband plays every game to make sure I win. That sweet, darling man. And when I accuse him of cheating in favor of me, he denies it with an oath. So I wouldn’t enjoy playing any game a husband like Anthony.

Fortunately, Anthony and Kate’s marriage is much more harmonious than their Pall Mall-playing manners.
Oops, I think this wasn't meant to be read until after the whole series because I spoiled myself on who Colin marries by reading it right after the book.
But, on a good note, it was another Pall Mall game, which was hilarious! My favorite lines:

"There will be no cheating," Anthony warned.
"At least no new type of cheating," Simon added. "Previously established cheating techniques are permissible."

Şu dar zamanımda özlemimi Anthony ve Kate'in Secon Epilogue hikayesii ile giderdim.. Nasıl zevkliydi anlatamam :D Evliliklerinden 15 yıl sonrası ama maşallah hala çocuk gibiler :D
Bridgerton kardeşlerinin meşhur oyunu Pall Mall'u hepinizi biliyorsunuz.. Ehh dolayısıyla siyah ölüm tokmağını da :D
Burada da ana konu buydu.. Nasıl olduğunu önceki tecrübelerinizden tahmin edersiniz artık ;)

Short and fun addition of The Viscount Who Loved Me.

15 years after the vavavoom, Kate and Anthony enjoys a happy, content and quiet life. Quiet? Not really. This book is about their happiness and even though the bunch are way older, they still act happily as children. I liked it. :)
Oh that one was just marvelous and totally crazy! I laughed my head off! I always loved that Pall Mall scene in 'The Viscount who loved me' but that Pall Mall game was even better than the one in the original story. The Bridgertons are just mad when it comes to that game and totally mischievous but I love them for that. A wonderful and funny little story.
Absolutely funny!!! I think it was a good idea to write the second epilogue about the pall mall game. The thought to turn this into a tradition was awesome!
I LOVE Kate and Anthony! It was my favourite book. The only negative thing I could say about it is, that it was way too short.
15 years of Kate and Anthony's marriage with the rest of Pall Mall team; Simon, Daphne, Kate, Anthony, Colin and Edwina. It was fun, the game I meant BUT it contains vastly SPOILER! Don't read this if you haven't Romancing Mister Bridgerton.
A very funny and clever epilogue, I think it was a nice touch to the story let us know how they kept the tradition of the game after 15 years.
Anthony and Kate are still so very much in love and so are everybody else.
The Bridgertons are still amusing as hell 15 years after. I think it was perfect that this revolved around Pall Mall and the pallet of death. It was one of the most memorable parts in The Viscount Who Loved Me.
Okayyyyy, I got it. These epilogues are meant to be read well after you finished the whole series, so don't read this if you do not wish to know who Colin will marry!!!! Big, big mistake on my part.
I loved that even after 15 years, Anthony and Kate still remained playful as ever. And Colin, is it possible to love him even more? The climax of the Pall Mall match was hilarious.

Just, HEE.

That is all.

(I can't believe I forgot to add this one...)

9. Julia Quinn, The Viscount Who Loved Me

Why? Julia Quinn's books appear deceptively light, but always carry darker depths underneath the sparkle. And there is loads of sparkle—Quinn excels at dialogue, and at making a historical setting seem approachable, peopled with characters you could imagine knowing at any period in time.

I don't often give five star ratings to short epilogue books, but this one gets five stars from me. It is short and not terribly complicated, but it has lots of the elements I love in Julia Quinn's writing. This is simply the story of the annual pall mall game played by the older Bridgerton siblings and their spouses. There is strategy and conniving and maybe a bit of cheating involved, and it is all in great fun. This short story is wonderful because it showcases the fun personalities and wonde ...more
I can't bring myself to give a full five stars because, even though I liked it, there is no plot. It's just a nice short story showing a moment. And that's it. A nice moment, but not exactly a story.

It could still cut four stars had it not been the fact that it could be more well advertised that you should read the full series before it, or you'll have to live with a big fat spoiler. So three stars for you.
A nice little novella but did Kate really have to sound so like a rather demented witch? The comparison with the witches from Macbeth really did seem rather accurate with the way she sounded in the beginning. Rather like this:

Or like this:

LOL Kate ma Anthony gak berubah berubah kelakuanya setelah lima belas tahun berlalu. #daydream banget mengharap pernikahan lucu kayak mereka :p.

Apa sih yang gak geje kalo menyangkut soal Bridgerton, apa yang gak curang soal Pall Mall bagi mereka. LOL. Jadi ini mengenang, tradisi mereka buat main Pall Mall seperti saat di buku Viscount Who Loved me, saat Anthony mulai sadar dia jatuh hati sama Kate, dengan pemain 'orisinil', diantaranya Anthony, Kate, Edwina, Simon, Colin, dan Dephany. Lucunya g

Really just a brief short story that takes place 15 years after Kate and Anthony's marriage. The pall mall game that had Kate whipping Anthony's butt has become an annual challenge with part of the game being a pre-plotting to obtain the black mallet of death. The Bridgerton's unite to compete and give us a peak into their relationship. Takes place after Colin's wedding.
In questo 2 epilogo scopriamo che la partita di Pall Mall - galeotta per l'avvicinamento fra Anthony e Kate - è diventata una tradizione, che si ripete ogni anno con gli stessi sei giocatori, ed i padroni di casa si divertono iniziando da settimane prima a farsi la guerra per vedere chi riuscirà ad accaparrarsi la mazza nera della morte! Ovviamente tutto è lecito e nulla proibito, ed ovviamente c'è anche la gara a chi è più sleale per vincere!
Ai sei giocatori si aggiunge Penelope come consulente

Anthony and Kate just got me quite nervous, really. They're almost the same age here in the second epilogue as my parents, and I just cannot imagine them having quite the energy to do all... THAT. But still, I enjoyed myself immensely. I pray I age as well as they. :)
This was really just one more chapter. Not as good as I thought and now really what I was expecting. It was fun and playful but didn't give all the details I would have like besides being married for 15 years.

Si Anthony sama si Kate ini ya, beneran deh beneran beneran beneraaan. Mereka kayak anak anak. Banget.
Aku agak-agak lupa awalnya gimana ceritanya tentang kejadian di Pall Mall. Lalu aku mulai ingat dan aku tahu emang disitu aku suka banget sama interaksi keluarga Bridgenton yang ingin saling menjatuhkan satu sama lain bahkan ketika mereka telah dewasa. Sebagian besar yang kunikmati disini adalah kisah satu keluarga ini yang cekcoknya nggak pernah berhenti. Apalagi kalo Anthony lagi marah, itu...
Was there much of a plot? No. Was it tremendous fun to see the Bridgertons get into the competitive spirit again over a rousing game of Pall Mall? Of course.
I'm not a big fan of audiobooks, but I've had this strange obsession with my MP3 player lately, and when a friend of mine told me she was listening to The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn I thought, Why not?

I loved reading this novel, so of course I liked listening to it, even though it took me a while to get used to the female voice for the hero's POV. I think I actually may have enjoyed it even more in some parts, because since I didn't have to do the actual reading, I could focus on the s
Loved this second epilogue! Laughing so hard I almost couldn't finish it, Kate and Anthony are one of my favorite couples.
As I am rereading the series I am filling in each 2nd Epilogue. fun to have a bit more info about a favorite family of mine!
Como no amar a esta familia, definitivamente mis escenas favoritas siempre tendran que ver con el palamayo.
