What To Read After Binge-Watching Bridgerton

Dearest Readers,

At this point, you have probably already absorbed Season One of Bridgerton in all of its entirety. If you are anything like everyone else in the Ton you are probably itching for some recommendations on what to pick up while you eagerly await season two. The Taylor Community Library staff has graciously provided a list for us to peruse.

Yours Truly,

Lady Whistledown

When Nya returns home for a royal wedding, she accidentally finds herself up close and personal—in bed—with the real-life celebrity prince who she loves to hate. After agreeing to a fake romance, Nya and Johan must decide if their fake romance will lead nowhere or to a happily-ever-after. *Note* This book is part of a series that does not have to be read in order.

As one of England’s most notorious newspaper columnists, Lady Katherine Bascomb believes knowledge is power. And she’s determined to inform and educate the ladies of London on the nefarious-and deadly-criminals who are preying on the fairer sex, but when the good-looking lead detective accuses Katherine of inflaming-rather than informing-the public with her column, she vows to prove him wrong.

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

Valinda Lacey’s mission in the steamy heart of New Orleans is to help the newly emancipated community survive and flourish. But soon she discovers that here, freedom can also mean danger. When thugs destroy the school she has set up and then target her, Valinda runs for her life—and straight into the arms of Captain Drake LeVeq.

Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.

If you want a fun nonfiction, this book will help you discover a feminist pop history that looks beyond the Ton and Jane Austen to highlight the Regency women who succeeded on their own terms and were largely lost to history — until now.
