The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn New Release and Reviews

She was in the wrong place…

Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers’ hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain’s bed…

He found her at the wrong time…

Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he’s stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real—and his duty to the Crown means he’s stuck with her.

Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?

When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal—though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew’s secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart…?

Excerpt

He motioned with his arm, urging her a few more steps forward. “Careful,” he murmured.

Poppy looked to her toes. The deck came to an abrupt halt in front of her, its elevation dropping by several feet.

The captain hopped down. “The beakhead, my lady,” he said with a gallant wave to the triangular deck that formed the pointy front of the Infinity. He reached up and placed his hands on her hips to help her down.

But when she was steady, he didn’t let go.

“This is as far forward as one can stand on deck,” he told her.

She pointed to a spot a few feet ahead. “What about—”

“As one can stand safely on deck,” he amended. He adjusted their position so that he was standing behind her. “Now close your eyes.”
“But then I can’t see the stars.”

“You can open them later.”

She tilted her head to the left, right, and back again, as if to say, Oh, very well, but she closed her eyes.

“Now tilt your head up. Not all the way, just a bit.”

She did, and maybe it was that motion, or maybe it was just because she’d closed her eyes, but she felt instantly off-balance, as if something far greater than the ocean had stolen her equilibrium.

The captain’s hands tightened on her hips. “What do you feel?” he asked, his lips coming close to her ear.

“The wind.”

“What else?” She swallowed. Licked her lips.

“The salt in the air.”

“What else?”

“The motion, the speed.”

He moved his mouth closer. “What else?”

And then she said the one thing that had been true from the beginning.

You.”

REVIEWS

LIANA   4 🌟

The other Miss Bridgerton is the third book in Julia Quinn’s series of novels featuring members of the previous generations of Bridgertons and their neighbours and long standing family friends The Rokesby.

Poppy had two seasons with no luck in encountering a suitable suitor, she decides to visit a friend that soon will have her first child, in the country side in Dorset. It’s a great place to explore and one day in her walks she discovered a cave where she shouldn’t be and gets kidnapped.Soon she meets the captain of the boat where she is brought and finds out that they will sail to Lisbon.

We have two characters that are forced into proximity by not so normal circumstances( as he technically kidnapped her )and the time they have to spend together on the ship trying to overcome the boredom is when they realise how much they enjoy each other company through their dialogue, curiosity towards each other and the intelligence and laugh out loud moments that they share.They come to think that each one is not what they were expecting especially because she is part of the Bridgertons but very beautiful and intelligent and he is a devastating handsome, charming and also infuriating at times, the captain of Infinity who is actually a spy for the British government.

Overall I enjoyed the book, is a very slow burn, a great half part of the book but disliked that there wasn’t much action, no dangerous adventures like in others books and the end seemed to rush, to sharp cut just to wrap everything up and end the story.

Shyann 4.5 🌟

Poppy and Andrew don’t make a good first impression under the circumstances but it isn’t long before they start to warm up to each other. Between their verbal sparring and building attraction these two are a perfect match. Most of this book takes place out at sea, which I loved because it means more time to focus on the MCs and their relationship. Despite their journey together being fairly short all their interactions and banter made it seem like a slow build romance.

For me this is the best in the series. Not that I disliked the other two but this one definitely stands out. I thoroughly enjoyed the word play and all the odd conversations. Overall I’ll say this was a 4.5 star read. And I’m once again looking forward to the rest of the series.
