When He Was Wicked: Bridgerton (Bridgertons, 6) PDF AZW3 EPUB MOBI TXT Download

A New York Times BestsellerFrom #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Francesca Bridgerton, in the sixth of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.FRANCESCA’S STORYIn every life there is a turning point. A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one’s life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London’s most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca’s surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer—the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

  • This is not a review on the Bridgerton books themselves (if you like the previous books or the Netflix show, you’ll probably like these as well). This is about the craziest publishing mistake I’ve seen. So- I bought “When He Was Wicked” (Book 6- Francesca’s Story) and “It’s In His Kiss” (Book 7- Hyacinth’s Story). I was reading “Wicked” page 277 where Francesca and Michael are on a horse in Scotland and I turned the page to 278 and suddenly Gareth (a previously unknown character in Bridgerton) is running through the streets of London looking for Hyacinth. WTF?!?! Then, on page 279 we are back in Scotland where Francesca and Michael are running for cover to a cottage, and there seems to be a problem with ‘Felix’, the previously unnamed horse. For a laugh I turned to page 278 in Hyacinth’s book (“Kiss”) to find out that ‘Felix’ the horse went lame, which is why Francesca and Michael ran to the cottage. Somehow, the publishers switched both pages 278 in the two books. How does that happen and not get caught? Or is it like the movie “Elf” and someone like Walter thought no one would notice what happened to a friggin’ puppy and a pigeon? Anyway, if you are reading “Wicked” and find a man named Gareth suddenly chasing Hyacinth, don’t worry- you just have to buy the other book for the missing page (and vice-versa). Could this be a genius new marketing technique? I legit kind of feel like I found a Golden Ticket and am left wondering what is to be my prize? 😉 Also, I have taken 3 pics to show the publisher’s page swap mistake for any doubters out there!
  • Ok, so I’d originally listed this as 4 stars. I believe, in my younger years, where I had much less experience in life and with men, I couldn’t fully appreciate the plot of this book. But now I’m a bit older, I really really loved it!I loved that Michael was already in love with Francesca before the book began. Every Bridgerton book before this one, the hero had already decided that he wasn’t going to fall in love. But this book was so different having Michael be in love with his cousin’s wife.It was kind of hard reading about John’s death and Francesca and Michael’s grief. They both dealt with it in different ways, and unfortunately caused a 4 year separation. I loved how when he returned, they were able to pick right up, even with a small amount of awkwardness.I felt like their relationship changing from friendship to mutual desire and becoming lovers had a completely appropriate timeline. And once they started sleeping together, consent was a big deal to Michael. He would never do anything she didn’t agree too. There are three detailed sex scenes and a couple of fade out scenes.I really loved how they both came to recognize that John would want his two favorite people to find happiness in each other. It took Francesca a little bit longer, but that made complete sense because of how much she had loved John.One more thing I loved about the story was how Francesca could tell that she loved each man differently, but that didn’t mean that she loved either of them any less or any more than the other. It was just different. And that’s how love is in real life. Always changing and expanding, but never diminishing.
  • The Bridgerton series has some enjoyable novels; some entertaining novels; and some that are both enjoyable and entertaining. Sadly, this one is not one of any of them. I found it to be so plodding and lacking that I had to put it down for a week and read something by another author before I could return to it to complete it for a college class review of potential novels for a Women’s Literature class.Francesca is so emotionally dependent, shallow, and immature that she is hardly one to stimulate any sensitivity in a Reader. If Michael Stirling is so emotionally close and valuable to her, then she never really shows that, except to focus on his lips a time or two. Neither character speaks from the heart and is candid until Colin tells Michael that he may need to open his heart and consider seducing her. They do not act like functional, and emotionally engaged adults who shared a love for John Stirling, Francesca’s late husband. Were Francesca a modern day character, one would suggest some grief therapy for a year or more for her. Lucky for Michael that he has the fortune to go off to India for four years to soothe his wounds, grieve his cousin, drown his sorrows over his separation and unrequited love for Francesca, and get malaria. We are treated to a brief discussion on the medical merits of quinine, which was a welcomed relief from Francesca’s vacillation and avoidance behaviors. Even after being seduced, having a three plus week series of trysts with Michael, having him bare his soul to her, marrying him, and doing all this with the knowledge of a houseful of servants, she is not willing to verbalize that she loves this unbelievably patient sap until she can have her dead John’s blessing in a poorly written mystical episode at John’s gravesite. This tedious novel would have – and should have – been a passionate short story of two loves at a tender young age. I was so RELIEVED for it to end; and Francesca was still not on the way to having a baby – something she obsessed over for 3/4 of thenovel.While most of this series of novels rate 3 stars for entertainment; and three actually merit 4 stars for entertainment AND enjoyment, in my opinion, this one barely can claim to be entertaining OR engaging; therefore, 2 stars it is. Read TO SIR PHILLIP WITH LOVE instead!!!!
  • A second-time-around story for Francesca Bridgerton and Michael Stirling. Michael, an infamous rake, falls in love with Francesca on the day before her wedding to his beloved cousin, John, so he hides his feelings and becomes her friend… until, unexpectedly, his cousin John dies. Michael inherits the family fortune and title, and unwilling to take advantage of John’s widow (despite his feelings) takes himself off to India. Four years later he returns. Francesca, newly out of half-mourning, has decided to look for a husband, and Michael’s mother is urging him to look for a wife. We know which way it’s heading but it’s the route it takes that makes it interesting. Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton novels are always entertaining.
  • Oh my goodness!This was by far the raunchiest of the Regency series, the Bridgertons!Francesca is #6 in the order of siblings to get the Julia Quinn treatment, and it had been a long time coming.At some point, during the other books, Francesca married and was whisked off to Scotland to take her seat with her Earl.Sadly, two years into their blissfully happy marriage, he passes away.Four years after being widowed, she realises that she wants to marry again. She wants, desperately, to be a mother.Michael, John’s cousin, has been one of her best friends, throughout her short marriage, but, in her widowhood, he disappears off to India.He’s been described as the Merry Rake, and now, as the new Earl, when he arrives back in the country, there is no shortage of offers for marriage. But none come close to being the right woman. Because the right woman is the one woman he can’t have.Another great addition to the Bridgerton series, and the raunch factor was definitely upped in this one!
  • Francesca is a naughty girl. Even before losing her poor husband to an aneurysm, she displays curiosity levels unbecoming a cat let alone a Georgian countess in hey brother in law’s night time exploits with the lovely ladies of London Town.After the husband trots off this mortal coil, the brother in law (who had been in love with Francesca since day 1) decides that India is where all of the cool kids are (who are now earls with severe issues due to unrequited love that could be resolved by just telling the object of their desires).Brother in law returns and thankfully after pages of, well, rumpy pumpy and much galavanting across Britain (surely not practical with the modes of transport available or the quality of infrastructure in Georgian Britain) there is a wedding. Of sorts.
  • I am relatively green romance novel reader. I stumbled upon Lisa Kleypas and read most of he book. I really enjoy most of them. Then I moved on to Sarah MacLean (that I did not enjoyed nearly as much, rolling my eyes on almost every page) and eventually I discovered Bridgerton series.I enjoy it very, very much. It is funny, sexy and it is very good writing. However book no 5 about Francesca was not that enjoyable. Writing was good as usual, but the character of Francesca drove me crazy. She is described as logical, cool headed and perceptive. But further in to the book her IQ was dropping. Her catch phrase seems to be “Michael”, and nothing else. She was constantly either speechless, or started sentence without ability to finish it or was just saying “Michael” for the sake of saying it. When asked question her regular answer was “I don’t know”.I gave it 3 stars because writing was quite good, I like the whole series very much, and first half is rather digestible.To finish on the positive note – I already started the next book. I like it very much thanks to healthy dosage of Lady Danbury’s presents (and of course her caine!) 🙂
  • I chose this book from the whole sibling series as it sounded the most interesting, in terms of dealing with young widowhood and moving on with life. I didn’t dislike the characters or the plot, but I was disappointed that the first couple’s life together was never really shown to the reader. From the first page, Francesca, John and Michael are a trio, you never see F and J alone, which I would have liked, so that later, we can understand her grief better by being privy to their life behind closed doors. I felt like a lot was skimmed over. I understand people don’t want to be brought down with lots of chapters about sadness, naturally, but it would have added to the character’s depth if shown a bit more. The first two sex scenes are very long, after one which seemed to go on for ten pages, I just wanted them to get on with it and stop reading about Francesca’s nipples. The vocabulary was distractingly bad here. The word “Wicked” was used about 17 times in the span of 3 pages. I don’t mind sex scenes, but don’t insult or bore the reader by being lazy and repetitive. I liked them enough to be glad they were happy and the epilogue was sweet, but I had no idea what certain characters or locations looked like as there was little to no description of the rooms or faces other than someone having blue or green eyes. I prefer Audrey Howard and Elizabeth Chadwick as writers of relationships and dialogue. A bit too long overall, could have been 30 pages shorter, but nice enough as a love story.
