Review: The Other Miss Bridgerton

The Other Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys, #3)


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…?

Rating: 5-stars


The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is one of the most enjoyable historical romance I’ve read lately. I give this outstanding book five-stars just for the humor. I couldn’t help laughing at the banters between Poppy and her privateer, Andrew. They are both intelligent, kind-hearted, and adventurous. There two characters plus, the minor ones made this an unforgettable journey. A journey, that I never wanted to leave. I knew it had to come to an end. However, I loved this fictional world Julia Quinn penned so well. I felt like I was there experiencing it all first hand. From the moment Poppy was kidnapped from being in the wrong spot at the wrong time to her and Andrew arguing back and forth. Then to follow them as they slowly fell deeply in love with each other. Both tried not to and we all know how that goes. Usually, it ends in an explosive sort of way. Fireworks, that how I would describe them. Beautiful, entertaining, and amusing…
