The Duke and I (Bridgertons First book) by Julia Quinn
Lend me your eyes for this unique and awesome romantic story of a commoner and the Duke of London. It’s funny, but Simon Basset, London’s unmarried Duke by all odds has to propose to his best friend’s sister and that is none other than Daphne Bridgerton. The two are willing to put on a show that they are married, yet it is Basset’s plan to keep himself off the market.
As Daphne waltzes from one ballroom to another with Basset, it becomes harder to recall that their courtship is a show. Could it be Basset’s evil, yet attractive smile or his eyes that burn like fire? Daphne comes to realize that their show requires some changes.
