JQ is over the moon about the reader response to The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. An instant fan favorite! Library Journal nailed it with their verdict: “Funny, spicy, and fast-paced, this spirited Bridgertons prequel is sure to be a fan-pleaser and may gain Quinn some new devotees as well.” So much so that all you readers put Edward and Cecilia’s story all the way up at #5 on the NYT Bestseller List and #8 on the USA Today List! THANK YOU FROM JQ!
Celebrate with Make-Believe music! JQ rolls out the Soundtrack for The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. And if you haven’t ordered your copy yet, read the first two chapters for free, or mix it up and switch to the audio excerpt, which starts at Chapter 2. Enjoy!
“Quinn’s fans will be grateful she’s crossed the pond for this textured look at life in New York during the 1770s” Kirkus (Starred). And Booklist (also Starred), celebrates an “abundance of dry wit and swoonworthy romance for which she is best known and loved.” The only thing to say that’s better than that is: NOW AVAILABLE! Go get it! There is no more waiting!
Need a taste, first? Read the first two chapters. And then after you read it all, come back for JQ’s Author Notes Inside The Girl With the Make Believe Husband!

While you are waiting, enjoy a few highlights on JuliaQuinn.com, including JQ’s insider peek into the writing of Because of Miss Bridgerton (the first of the Rokesby Series), the answer to whatever happened to Posy Reiling, and groove along to JQ’s Soundtrack for one of her first novellas, which highlights one of the most fabulously silly lines in all of her books: “Saying moo on cue at Waterloo.” Have fun!
On the Way to the Wedding (Gregory’s story; The Bridgertons, Book 8), is in the pink with a new cover and a reduced price ($5.99 for paper and e). Plus, for the very first time, the Second Epilogue is included.
Don’t miss JQ’s interview on Audible’s Authorized series — listen as Julia talks about the characters, the time period, and making mistakes. And we all know how JQ gets a little intense when it comes to game shows and trivia questions, and that’s on full display here…
The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband will land in readers’ hands on May 30, but the never-before-seen, first-ever excerpt is now live on juliaquinn.com, finally answering the question: What happened to Edward Rokesby?
Intrigued by this second book in the Rokesby Series? Make sure you pre-order your copy. If enough pre-orders are logged across vendors, JQ will release the second chapter before publication!
