Love is in the air this spring–in part thanks to the steamy hit series Bridgerton. Author Julia Quinn’s bestselling novel series is back for a second season on Netflix this week, and if you can’t get enough of the Bridgerton brothers, we totally feel your pain. There’s more than one way to live the adventures of this charming family–and it’s in the form of the books.
If you haven’t read them, you’re in for a wonderful, emotional roller coaster as dramatic as the series. In fact, if you have n’t streamed the books yet, we strongly recommend that you do so you can relive the highs and lows of Daphne Bridgerton and her de ella rugged Duke of Hastings when you’re not rewatching the series on a new TV. Be sure to check out where you can stream the books below.
The first season of the series was based on the first book, and follows Daphne Bridgerton as she enters her “sham” relationship with the Duke of Hastings. It’s only 12 hours and nine minutes of streaming, but each minute will have you captivated thanks to Rosalyn Landor’s narration.
