IF IT'S IN HIS HEART ... IT'S IN HIS KISS

MEET OUR HERO...

Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. 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 s

Thank heavens for Spring Cleaning!

A year or so ago I began reading Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series and after devouring the first six books back to back, I set them aside and moved on to something else. Well here I am a year later and in the spirit of “Spring Cleaning,” I decided I’d catch up on those books that were just sitting on my shelves collecting dust, and that included the final two Bridgerton books.

Gareth St. Clair is in a bind – that’s what the cover blurb tells us. Though I must admi

As the youngest of the very lively Bridgerton clan, Hyacinth has had to stand out and make herself heard. Coming across a overly outspoken and willing to outwit anyone, Hyacinth is starting to see there may be more to her mundane life and herself when in walks someone who not only can outwit her but can render her speechless!
Gareth St.Clair and his father have been at odds for many years after he became the heir after his brother’s sudden death. Knowing out of sheer spite his father would rui

Hmm, didn’t really like this Bridgerton story. I was looking forward to a real firecracker of a heroine with Hyacinth Bridgerton, but I thought her character was watered down compared to how she was described in the previous novels as this very independent minded I go my own way kind of heroine. She reminded me of Colin in that the character was somewhat of a letdown once their story was told.

There were plenty of other men who behaved with equal lack of propriety and more than a few who were as handsome as sin, but Gareth St. Clair was the only one who manged to combine the two with such success.

“Gareth, yes? Or Gareth, no?”
“Gareth, more” !!!!!!!




I LOVED this book! Hyacinth is definitely a unique young woman and this story was exactly what I was expecting to read!

Let’s be honest… Every man is scared of Hyacinth. She’s too honest for her own good and even more stubborn. She doesn’t settle on the second best choice and she prefers to be friends with the most terrifying woman in London who is like a grandmother to her. I liked the way she was acting because she’s genuine. She knows that s

Eu adoro, ADORO a Hyacinth (apesar de não saber dizer o nome dela)!! Este é sem dúvida o meu favorito da série, e ainda gostei mais desta segunda vez (a 1ª foi em inglês).
Os Bridgerton são todos muito bem humorados, mas esta, por ser a irmã mais nova ou não, é hilariante!
Cenas de emocionar e cenas de rir à gargalhada! Já disse que adoro a Hyacinth?? =)

Oi gente!!!

Falar dos Bridgertons é muito fácil. Poderia só colocar que a série é perfeita, e é uma ótima entrada para o mundo maravilhoso dos romances históricos. É a família mais engraçada de Londres, e eu sinceramente, se estivesse naquela época gostaria de fazer parte da família. Mas não é só isso, Julia Quinn relata com muita sutileza o contexto social da época.

Falando de um modo grosseiro, ela escreve como era a vida das mulheres do século 19. Como os pais exerciam uma pressão psicológica e

Simplesmente foi tudo perfeito, a meu ver!

Hyacinth and Gareth's story, the seventh in the Bridgerton series.

This book had a lot of potential, but it never really got off the ground. The book opens with a lot of promise. The hero Gareth is 18 and has never been given any affection, direction, or approval from his father. His mother has been dead since he was a small child.

His father then informs him that he is not really his son, and that his mother had an affair with an unknown man. From this point on Gareth and his father are official

Forgot I finished this last week. It does bother me slightly that I skipped the last book, and that this is the first one in the series I've listened to the audiobook, but ah well. OCD be damned. This was probably my favorite in the series since #2. It was very emotional in a way that got to me. Loved Gareth and Hyacinth, loved them even more together. And I liked the way Quinn finally pays off all the time she's spent building up Lady Danbury.

I'm so glad that I read Hyacinth's story for last because if I had read Gregory's the ending of the series would have left me with bad taste in my mouth. This way instead I regained my love for this series!

Hyacinth and Gareth are perfect for each other!

Hyacinth is fantastic with her quick wit and her intelligence. She's afraid of nothing! Her plain speaking was a joy to read!

Gareth is great too. I loved how Hyacinth make him crazy! LOL

And what to say about Lady D? WOW, just WOW! Her and Hyacint

After crying my way through When He Was Wicked, I was more than grateful for the easy laughs and fun hijinks of It’s in His Kiss. Hyacinth was a marvelous heroine, full of wit and mirth. And just like I’ve said many times before, the entire Bridgerton family were what made the book special. I’m still dying over Anthony’s reaction to Gareth asking him for Hyacinth’s hand in marriage.

Surprisingly though, I was not as invested in Hyacinth and Gareth’s romance as I expected to be. I did believe that

Maravilhoso, deliciosamente maravilhoso é o que este livro é.

A sagacidade de Hyacinth, da velha senhora que importuna todas as pessoas com a bengala e as suas tiradas mordazes e directas e... bem, os Bridgerton, uma mãe que nos mostra mais um bocadinho da história dela, um irmão mais velho visto por outros olhos e um irmão mais novo que tem passado um bocadinho ao lado nos outros livros mas que, por ser próximo em idade de Hyacinth, é o mais próximo dela e por isso aparece um pouco... e o pouco

Bu yorumu Kitap Esintisi sayfasında bulabilirsiniz.

Öpüşünde Saklı benim aslında dört gözle beklediğim kitaplardan biriydi. Çünkü Bridgerton kardeşlerden Hyacinth favorim olmaya aday bir kardeş. Sivri dili, kimseden sakınmaması ve mizah anlayışı onu benim gözümde süper bir karakter yapıyor. Ayrıca Lady Danbury ile takılması da onun bu özelliklerinin gelişmesinde büyük bir etken. Yalnız serinin tamamını düşünürsek kitaplar ilerledikçe kurgunun biraz düştüğünü söylersek yalan olmaz.

I say, Julia Quinn must have made a deal with the devil, because, AGAIN: such a great book this is, and cute too, actually, it’s probably the cutest one in the series. I’m still to read the last one, so I can’t be 100% sure of that statement, but yeah, I’m almost certain Hyacinth and Gareth will win the Cutest Book in the Series Award.

So, this is Hyacinth's book, the youngest Bridgerton of her generation, and I’m quite sure she’s also the youngest heroine yet in the series, being only 22; she is

Maybe because Hyacinth had felt like a child for so long, I was not as thrilled about reading her story. I honestly wanted a HR that would be somewhat amusing. I was lucky enough to get some of that because Hyacinth interacted with lady Danbury, a matron known for her especially candid personality and was vying for attention from Lady Danbury's grandson, Gareth St. Claire.

Gareth's sob story is typical, emotionally abandoned by his “father”, her finds out that he in not truly his father's son and

Ou melhor, deixem lá. Ela fá-las sozinha. O seu par Gareth também tem os seus encantos e é o seu passado que é mais intrigante. E é neto da Lady D!!! Claro que tinha de gostar dele!

I shouldn't bore people with my love for the Bridgerton series but, seriously, I cannot love these people (characters) more!! Oh, how I loved Hyacinth and Gareth! Hyacinth was funny, quick witted, smart, and sarcastic. Gareth was the perfect match for her, he could definitely hold his own with her. Loved the story, the hero and heroine, the proposal (the 2nd one)--*sigh*, and of course, I can't forget Lady Danbury! Love, love, love!!!!!

Az önce bir Julia Quinn kitabı daha ellerimden kayıp gitti. Cidden bitmemesi için elimden geleni yaptım 2 gün boyunca uzattım durdum, ama nafile. Eğer bu aileyi okuyorsanız onların bir parçası olursunuz. Ailenin tatlılığı bir yana yazarımızın bizi konuya tatlı tatlı dahil edişi, her bölümün başında beni gülümseten o girişleri ve sayılamayacak kadar bolca neden. O yüzden aileden birini daha göndermenin üzüntüsünü yaşıyorum.

"Aquele beijo" traz-nos a história de Hyacinth Bridgerton e Gareth St.Clair. Hyacinth é tão divertida, tão inteligente e perspicaz, é praticamente impossível não gostar desta nossa heroína. Já Gareth… o nosso herói é um homem que tem sérios problemas com o pai, mas que adora de coração a avó – que para mim foi a melhor personagem do livro, sem sombra de dúvida. Talvez tenha sido por isso que gostei tanto da Hyacinth – ela e a avó d

And I loved the fact that even though she was really stubborn with everything, she wasn't when it came to Garreth. They were an amazing couple that strongly compliment each other.

Tenho de ser sincera e dizer-vos que estava ansiosa para ler este livro.

Pela sua personalidade forte e arrojada, pela forma como ela aborda todos os assuntos, sem qualquer pingo de vergonha de dizer o que pensa, não interessa quem atinja ou não. Fez-me imen

Es muy difícil decir que Galán en estas novelas es el mejor... cada libro que lees, aparece uno nuevo que te enamora... y cada historia es totalmente distinta a la otra. Julia Quinn tiene un "deje" que les da a sus lectores de querer volver siglos atrás y vivir en esa época.
nunca fui gran amante de los libros históricos pero historias como las de quinn te hacen enamorar.

It's another great Bridgerton story from Julia Quinn. There are parts that just had me chuckling out loud - made my husband look at me a couple of times and ask what was so funny. But Gareth's struggle was so touching. My favorite heros are the tormented ones who are healed by love and Gareth definitely qualifies.
Katrina Passick Lumsden
This one was cuter than the other stories, and contained a bit more adventure, but I felt the romance wasn't quite as deep as in the other stories, and it was hard to connect with either character on a meaningful level. Still it was fun and funny, and the interactions between Hyacinth and Lady Danbury are hilarious. If you've made it this far with the Bridgertons, don't stop now.
E. Chainey (Bookowski)
Çok sevimli ve iyi diyaloglarla dolu bir hikaye idi. İçinde gizem de olunca daha bir güzel oldu sanki. Yalnız elmaslarin akibetini merak ettim. Küçük Cadı Isabella onları ne yapti acaba? Belki son kitapta bununla ilgili bir bilgi vardır. Umarım son kitapta yakında çıkar da seriye veda öpücüğü kondururuz:)
Susan (susayq ~)
Another great addition to this series! Hyacinth Bridgerton was such a refreshing heroine. She speaks her mind and is intelligent and loves with her whole heart. The scenes between Hyacinth and her mother, Violet, brought tears to my eyes. I want to be Violet when I grow up ;)

“I am asking you to marry me because I love you,” he said, “because I cannot imagine living my life without you. I want to see your face in the morning, and then at night, and a hundred times in between. I want to grow old with you, I want to laugh with you, and I want to sigh to my friends about how managing you are, all the while secretly knowing I am the luckiest man in town.”

“What?” she demanded.

He shrugged. “A man’s got to keep up appearances. I’ll be universally detested if everyone realizes how perfect you are.”
