Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
Julia Quinn is back in fine form, after the somewhat disappointing The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy. Billie Bridgerton is the aunt of the main characters in the Bridgerton series, and her story takes place in the Georgian period rather than the Regency. Billie always expects to marry one of the neighboring Rokesby brothers, although she’d really rather help her father’s steward run the family estate. When she needs help after falling out of a tree onto a roof while trying to rescue a cat, the brother who comes along is George, who is much too serious for her. Very entertaining, and the Georgian setting is enjoyable. If you’re new to the author, try one of her Regency-era romances, beginning with The Duke and I.
