The Duke and I
The first installment of Julia Quinn's Bridgertons series, The Duke and I is a story of an arranged marriage that unexpectedly turns into love. Duke Simon Basset is supposed to propose to his best friend's sister, Daphne Bridgerton, but only to keep him unavailable to hungry society mothers. But as Daphne goes along with her role, it gets more difficult to remember that it's all part of the plan. Now, it's her turn to do the convincing and persuade Simon to take their courtship seriously.
