Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth's sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past... and the key to his future. The problem is—it's written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word.


All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She's fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there's something about her—something charming and vexing—that grabs him and won't quite let go...


Or don't. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and annually discordant—Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth's every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other ... and that there is nothing as simple—or as complicated—as a single, perfect kiss.

I absolutely l loved this book! It’s been a while since I’ve read books that was set in the 19th Century and Julia Quinn’s books are also so good. Check out my review for book 3 here of her Bridgertons series.

Firstly, one of the reasons why I love reading these kinds of books is due to the forbidden romance. During the 19th Century, one couldn’t publicly show one’s affection to another....well not how people do in the 21st Century. I the reason why I love her books, is because they always involve some sort of love-hate relationship! Eeeike. The best kind!!

So, the main heroine, Hyacinth is those typically sassy, smart and yet funny characters. She is so sure of herself and doesn’t need a man in order to go about her way. I really like her and she is her own person.

Gareth is a typical bad boy on the outside. He’s been with women and has a reputation. Yet, he can be sensitive and understanding on the inside. You just have to get to know him.
He has a secret and Hyacinth comes into his life (aside from being good friends with his grandmother) by agreeing to translate a diary, left by his grandmother from his maternal side, from Italian to English. There the secrets are unfolded and a romance blossoms.

It is a typical ‘chick flick’ book set in the 19th Century and a lovely read. I especially love their big family. Always there for one another
