In every life there is a turning point. A moment so powerful, so sharp and awe-inspiring that you know your life will never be the same again. For Michael Stirling, London’s most notorious rake, that moment came when he first saw Francesca Bridgerton.
After a lifetime of chasing women, grinning as they chased after him, getting carried away but never compromising with his heart, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell in love so quickly and so deeply it was a miracle that he managed to stay standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname would only remain Bridgerton for another thirty-six hours; Unfortunately, the occasion of their meeting was a dinner to celebrate his upcoming marriage to his cousin.
But that was then. . . Now Michael is the Count and Francesca is free, but she still regards him as nothing more than her dear friend and confidante. Michael hesitates to tell her about his love. . . until one dangerous evening she throws herself innocently into his arms and the passion is stronger than even the darkest of secrets. . .

I loved Anthony Bridgerton more for his appearance in later novels than for his own The Viscount Who Loved Me. Although her roles in other novels have been brief, her strength, authority, and responsibility and love for her family really shines through in the two following books and in Daphne’s earlier story. The dining room scene in To Sir Philip With Love is priceless. The thought of four handsome, powerful, all-male Bridgerton brothers coming to save the day is enough to make any girl (young or old at heart) dizzy.
I have loved every book, every hero and every heroine on their own and for their own individuality. I’ve read hundreds of novels and found that apart from color variations (hair, eyes, etc. often completely different from what is described in the book), my hero and heroine retain mostly the same appearance in my mind’s eye. Not so with the Bridgerton series. Julia had done a brilliant job of bringing each character to life in both personality and appearance (despite the fact that the Bridgerton children often look so alike that they’re almost interchangeable).
I can vividly recall the individuality of each of the Bridgerton children and their future spouses in each book. From Francesca’s blue eyes to Colin’s green ones. I even imagined Benedict being slightly taller than his siblings before Julia mentioned it in the first ballroom scene in The Duke and I when Daphne is talking to her three older siblings. Only Michael in “WHWW” was hard to imagine with ebony hair, that came to my mind more and more clearly. (strange since he is by far my favorite man).
“WHWW”, “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton” and “To Sir Philip” actually take place at the same time. In fact, you can read them in any order. I’m glad “WHWW” was the last one I read because I don’t think I would have enjoyed the story of Colin or Eloise as much as I expected, with the same level of fever and passion that I did stuck in “WHWW”.
“WHWW” differs from the other books simply because of its more melancholic nature. However, it has a lot more wit and humor than other reviews have led me to believe. There is definitely a change in Julia’s writing style with “WHWW”. It’s more mature, it’s emotionally deeper and, holy Mary, it’s steamy. Totally evil on a level that others don’t subscribe to. Michael just took my breath away. As I said, there is something voluptuous and sensual about Simon that has made me fond of him from the first book, but Michael Stirling takes my breath away.
Ooohhh La La where can I get a man like that!? It takes a lot longer for anything to happen between Frannie and Michael than in the other books, but given the circumstances, it would have seriously discredited the pain and guilt Michael and Frannie were dealing with if something had happened sooner. As I said, what Julia makes you wait for is really worth it.
Of all the books, WHWW was the only one that really touched me on an emotional level. By the end of the book, tears were running down my cheeks as Frannie spoke to John at his grave. Julia has done a truly phenomenal job with this book and I hope she has realized what a task she has set herself in telling the stories of Gregory and Hyacinth. Anything but what Michael and Frannie intended for us and it will be like hoisting a sail in a gentle breeze.
I already miss Michael and Frannie. I wish Julia would have added more to the epilogue instead of leaving the reader wondering if Frannie will ever get pregnant. This was one of the main points of the book and the kind of catalyst that brings the two together. Of course, I’m sure if she and Michael have a son (I just hope this is confirmed in Hyacinth’s book) they will name him John. It’s pretty predictable, but given the circumstances, it just fits.
Thank you Julia for creating such a wonderful family and such delicious, delicious, charming, handsome men. However, returning to the real world makes it a bit bitter.
