Summary
Georgiana Bridgerton isn't against the idea of marriage. She'd just thought she'd have some say in the matter. But with her reputation hanging by a thread after she's abducted for her dowry, Georgie has two options: live out her life as a spinster or marry the rogue who has ruined her life. Enter option #3. As the fourth son of an earl, Nicholas Rokesby is prepared to chart his own course. He's close to completing his medical studies, and he has no time to find a wife. But when he discovers that Georgie Bridgerton--the girl-next-door--is facing ruin, he decides on a convenient solution. He never thought Georgie would say no to his proposal. But she doesn't want to be anyone's sacrifice, and besides, they could never think of each other as anything more than childhood friends--could they?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After being kidnapped by a fortune-hunter, Georgiana Bridgerton, fortunately, returns home none the worse for wear except for her reputation, which is now tarnished beyond repair. While Georgie couldn't give a fig for what society might think, everyone else in her family has a slightly different opinion of the matter. So when Georgie's old childhood friend and next-door neighbor, Nicholas Rokesby, prompted by a major case of guilt, proposes, everyone expects her to accept. But Georgie refuses to be looked upon as a marital charity case, and her initial reply to Nicholas' proposal is a polite, but firm, no. Funny enough, though, the more time the two spend together, the more Georgie begins to think she might want to reconsider her initial response. Quinn (The Other Miss Bridgerton, 2018) continues to perfect her literary recipe for witty, entrancing historical romances as evidenced by the latest scintillating addition to her Bridgerton Prequel series."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Quinn's charming fourth Rokesbys Regency romance (after The Other Miss Bridgerton), a woman marries her lifelong friend to save her reputation. The wealthy Lady Georgiana "Georgie" Bridgerton is ruined when Freddie Oakes tries to trap her into marriage, compromising her reputation by forcing her to spend unchaperoned time with him. When Georgie's godfather learns of her predicament, he tells his son, Nicholas Rokesby, that he must marry her. Both Nicholas and Georgie are romantics who had hoped to marry for love, but they agree to the union as a necessity and hope that their close friendship will survive. But the arrangement leads them to see each other in a new light, and an attraction grows between them as Nicholas tirelessly supports Georgie in pursuing her dreams; Georgie is fascinated with Nicholas's classes at medical school, and as women aren't allowed to attend, Nicholas agrees to teach her everything he can. Both hero and heroine enter into their marriage as virgins, making for tender, exploratory sex scenes with a welcome degree of humor. Quinn's fans will delight in the sparkling prose and progressive central couple. Agent: Steve Axelrod, Axelrod Agency. (Apr.)"
