Anthony Bridgerton is at an age where he considers it is time to find a wife and ensure his family line carries on. As he is a viscount taking over from his father's duties he too needs a son to carry on the title and responsibilities. One thing that made Anthony the man he is today is his father whom he highly respected and deeply loved. In his younger days as a child, he loved spending time with his father such as going on hikes and riding. His father was a strong and healthy person and best of all he was a wonderful husband and father. Never did Anthony expected that his father would die young when Anthony was only 18. It came as a shock to him and that made Anthony a person he is now and with a fear that most would not understand, so he kept it to himself.

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn is about a lady who is trying to find a man herself but don't mind if she ends up a spinster. The thing that she is really concern with is the gentleman that will ask for her sister's hand in marriage. Those men would need her approval if they want to marry her sister. The book is about how Anthony will find a wife but has to get his ideal wife's sister to like him. After reading Daphne's story I was really eager in reading the next book in this series. I had so much fun reading about Anthony and Kate as their personality sometime clashes. What made this book so funny was the person that Kate is and the encounters she has with Anthony is really funny. I thoroughly enjoyed how the romance slowly developed between two characters and how the love became so strong.
I love how that every book is about one of the Bridgertons, that way you get to know them one by one. You get to know how the characters interact with others in the story. Best part to me was how Anthony reacted to love, how he handled it and I loved all the encounters between the two hero and heroine. As I was flipping through the book to write this review, I can't help but read those events again. It made me laugh and put a smile to my face. I highly recommend this book because the Bridgertons will not cease to make you laugh.
