Summary

“Sophie Jordan is one of a kind!”—Samantha James 
Best-laid plans beget sizzling passion in the second book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s delectable Forgotten Princesses series. A sweeping and breathtakingly dramatic historical romance, Lessons from a Scandalous Bride features a haunted hero, a Scottish viscount, who hopes to snare a wealthy wife in Victorian England—only to have an inappropriately independent heiress catch his eye and steal his heart. Sophie Jordan is well-known and well-loved for her dark, brooding heroes and sexy heroines—and her fans will not be disappointed by these Lessons…nor will readers of the bestselling love stories of Lisa Kleypas and Sabrina Jeffries. When it comes to Ms. Jordan and her extraordinary historical romance novels, Kirkus Reviews offers the best advice: “Just surrender to the sizzle.”

    From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the seventh novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. 
    From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sum of All Kisses and Because of Miss Bridgerton comes the story of Hyacinth, the youngest child of the famed Bridgerton siblings. 
    Meet Our Hero . . . 
    Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth’s sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past . . . and the key to his future. The problem is—it’s written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word. 
    Meet Our Heroine . . . 
    All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She’s fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there’s something about her—something charming and vexing—that grabs him and won’t quite let go . . . 
    Meet Poor Mr. Mozart . . . 
    Or don’t. But rest assured, he’s spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and annually discordant—Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth’s every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other . . . and that there is nothing as simple—or as complicated—as a single, perfect kiss. 
    This edition includes the second epilogue from The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After.

In Viola, he thought he had found the perfect woman—beautiful and rich with a sweet nature.

Soon, however, John's secret was unwittingly revealed, but by then they were married and it was too late. Until one day, John finally came to his senses and prayed it wasn't too late to win back the love of his very own wife.
