Julia Quinn is awesome.
I’m not sure how she does it but I have fallen more and more in love with each successive hero she has written in her Bridgerton series. I loved Simon in the Duke And I. The came Anthony in The Viscount Who Loved me and although I wanted to hit him over the head and tell him to stop being so silly I still swooned. Then came Benedict in An Offer From A Gentleman. WOWZA! That’s all I’m saying. But I thought there’s no way she can better Colin in Romancing Mr Bridgerton. He was funny and sweet and witty but had a great temper as well (which only showcased his passion.) And he loved his heroine to distraction.
So when I started To Sir Phillip With Love, my expectations weren’t that high. I thought no-one could beat Colin. But Phillip has come along and fairly booted him right out the picture. He quiet and brooding but with a great smile. Gets tongue-tied and flustered and just wants to love his kids the best way he can. He has another fantastic temper. (I like controlled rage in a hero!) He works with his hands and gets all dirty and I’m only halfway through the book. There is no way Julia Quinn can better this man. No way!
I’m so glad I put the rest of her back-cat on my Ban On Spending reading List.
