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 speaks not a word.
MEET OUR HEROINE ...
All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She's fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there's something about her—something charming and vexing—that grabs him and won't quite let go...
MEET POOR MR. MOZART...
Or don't. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and annually discordant—Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth's every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other ... and that there is nothing as simple—or as complicated—as a single, perfect kiss.
I MUST HAVE MOAR BRIDGERTONS NOW.
Thoughts on It’s in His Kiss
I finally finally said, “Screw waiting to read this in order” and grabbed It’s in His Kiss (the only Bridgertons novel my library branch had on the shelves). So yeah, this is #7. But it doesn’t matter because it was amazing.
The more Julia Quinn I read, the more I absolutely adore what she does with her characters. And not just her main characters. ALL her characters.
I started with the Smythe-Smith series (which is a wee bit out of order), but it was fun to see their musicals pop up in this series. It gives you the feeling that everyone is interconnected and there really is a regency period with JQ’s characters.
And the family. I adore the way families and family dynamics are written. I laughed out loud at Hyacinth’s antics with her brother. I want to immerse myself into the Bridgertons and their stories.
And Hyacinth… I liked her. In some ways, she reminded me of myself, and that’s not something I see a lot of in books. Gareth is no slouch himself, though I do think I much preferred the heroine. And Lady Danbury. I <3 Lady Danbury.
I just want to gather up all these characters and take them with me. *hugs them all*
