From 1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series. In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter.

Five months later, the duchess informed the duke that she had conceived. The duke was taking no chances this time. He would have a son, and the dukedom would remain in Basset hands. The duchess experienced pains a month early, and pillows were tucked under her hips. Gravity might keep the babe inside, Dr. Stubbs explained. The duke thought that a sound argument, and, when the doctor had retired for the evening, placed yet another pillow under his wife, raising her to a twenty degree angle.
She remained that way for a month. And then finally, the moment of truth arrived. The household prayed for the duke, who so wanted an heir, and a few remembered to pray for the duchess, who had grown thin and frail even as her belly had grown round and wide.
They tried not to be too hopeful — after all, the duchess had already delivered and buried two babes. And even if she did manage to safely deliver a child, it could be, well, a girl. The head appeared, then the shoulders. And then the duke knew that there was a God, and He smiled on the Bassets.
He allowed the midwife one minute to clean the babe, then took the little boy into his arms and marched into the great hall to show him off. You are a Basset. You are mine. The duke wanted to take the boy outside to prove to everyone that he had finally sired a healthy male child, but there was a slight chill in the early April air, so he allowed the midwife to take the babe back to his mother.
The duke mounted one of his prized geldings and rode off to celebrate, shouting his good fortune to all who would listen. Meanwhile, the duchess, who had been bleeding steadily since the birth, slipped into unconsciousness, and then finally just slipped away. The duke mourned for his wife. He truly did. He arranged for fresh flowers to be laid at the base of her funereal monument every week, no matter the season, and her portrait was moved from the sitting room to the hall, in a position of great honor over the staircase.
A pony had been purchased, a small gun had been selected for future use at the fox hunt, and tutors were engaged in every subject known to man. He was a sturdy, healthy young boy, with glossy brown hair and clear blue eyes. Nurse nodded. She always nodded when the duke talked about the superiority of the Basset blood. Hastings whipped around to face her. Maybe what he needs is a good dose of discipline. A good paddling might help him find his voice. Nurse gasped.

The duke dropped the brush. Hastings sank onto the window seat. I should have let the title go to my cousin. And with that, the duke stalked out of the room. Nurse Hopkins hugged the boy close. Nurse Hopkins proved true to her word. He still ran into trouble when he was upset, and Nurse had to remind him often that he needed to remain calm and collected if he wanted to get the words out in one piece.
But Simon was determined, and Simon was smart, and perhaps most importantly, he was damned stubborn. He learned to take breaths before each sentence, and to think about his words before he attempted to say them. Nurse looked up sharply. The duke had not laid eyes on the boy in seven years. The trip took much of the day, and it was late afternoon by the time their carriage rolled up to Basset House. Simon gazed at the busy London streetscape with wonder as Nurse Hopkins led him up the steps.
The door swung open within seconds, and they found themselves being looked down upon by a rather imposing butler. The butler examined Simon, recognized immediately that he had the look of the Bassets, and ushered them in. He was most likely to stutter when he was angry. The last I heard, he said he had no son.
He looked quite pained as he said it, so no one pursued the conversation. Simon felt his jaw clench, felt his throat working wildly. How could you have assumed the boy was dead if his father were not in mourning? The butler shrugged. Simon said nothing. He was trying too hard to get his emotions under control.
He had to. The butler nodded. Nurse started pacing wildly, muttering under her breath and referring to his grace with every vile word in her vocabulary. Simon remained in the center of the room, his arms angry sticks at his side as he took deep breaths.
You can do this, he shouted in his mind. You can do this. Nurse turned to him, saw him trying to control his temper and immediately gasped. And make sure to think before you speak. Nurse Hopkins straightened and turned slowly around.
She tried to think of something respectful to say. She tried to think of anything that would smooth over this awful situation. But when she looked at the duke, she saw Simon in him, and her rage began anew. The duke might look just like his son, but he was certainly no father to him.
Simon nodded curtly. Not when he was this upset. Normally, he could go days without a stutter, but now…. Eight siblings, alphabetically named.
