Waiting on Wednesday: The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I LOVE Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series - it's one of my all-time favorite series and the fourth book in particular (Romancing Mr. Bridgerton) is one of my top 3 favorite historical romance novels. With that being said, it's probably no suprise to anyone that I'm ecstatic over the upcoming release of The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After, a collection of "2nd epilogues" for each of the eight books, plus a bonus story about the Bridgerton siblings' mother, Violet.

If you enjoy fun historical romance and are interested in giving the Bridgerton series a try, the first book, The Duke and I is currently on sale on Kindle and Nook for $1.99.

Book Description (from Julia Quinn's website):

Once upon a time, a historical romance author created a family...

But not just any family. Eight brothers and sisters, assorted in-laws, sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, (not to mention an overweight corgi), plus an irrepressible matriarch who's a match for any of them... These are the Bridgertons: less a family than a force of nature. Through eight bestselling novels, readers laughed, cried, and fell in love. But they wanted more.

And so the readers asked the author...

What happened next? Does Simon ever read his father's letters? Do Francesca and Michael become parents? Who would win in a Pall Mall grudge match?

Does "The End" really have to be the end?

Now, with The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After, Julia Quinn delivers eight sexy, funny, and heartwarming "2nd epilogues," plus a bonus story about none other than the wise and witty Violet Bridgerton herself. So get to know the Bridgertons all over again — because Happily Ever After is a whole lot of fun.
