Dearest gentle readers,
Did you miss me? With a new season afoot, old and new faces return to London, 1815 to find matches, and maybe love if one dares.
While the Duke and Duchess of Hastings are attending to their newborn, there are still plenty of people for this author to seek out.
This author must remind you, dear readers, that, as scandalous as it may be, a match can be unmatched at any moment, by the lady of course.
Viscount Anthony Bridgerton announced that he will be seeking a viscountess this season. Who shall be the lucky lady? Will she be able to take on the task as Viscountess to the Bridgerton household?
It has come to this author’s attention that Miss Eloise Bridgerton has been seen flocking about with political propaganda groups in the lower parts of London. How the Viscount allowed that, we may never truly know.
She has also found that being seen working and hanging about with a Mr. Theo Sharpe is acceptable.
It seems that there will be a few weddings this season. Some more anticipated than others, of course. With Miss Philippa Featherington married off to Lord Finch, there is a greater attention on the eldest Featherington this season.
Another of the nuptials that occurred was between Miss Thompson and Sir Philip Crane. The outrageous scandal that occurred last season from Miss Thompson, now Lady Crane, has been drowned out by the cry of twins.
There is also news of new blood staining these waters as Lady Danbury plays host to Lady Mary and her daughters Miss Kate Sharma and Miss Edwina Sharma.
Her Majesty the Queen is most intrigued by Miss Edwina Sharma and even announces her as this season’s diamond.
Is Miss Edwina Sharma up for the daunting task? Or rather, are the suitors who are seeking Miss Edwina Sharma ready to face the prickly wall that guards her known as her sister?
It has reached this author’s ears that the new Lord Featherington, cousin to the late Lord Featherington, will be embarking a journey to this fair country from the Americas.
It is also said that his lordship has several mines full of the finest rubies, but everything is not always as it seems with Lord Featherington. He was seen alone with none other than Miss Prudence Featherington, daughter of the late Lord. What a scandal indeed.
This may not be the only scandal involving the Featherington name this season. The new Lord Featherington may seem handsome on the outside but is rather ugly underneath.
