The Queen Arrives in Bookstores! Chapter One is now Posted!

May 9, 2023

THE BOOK: Queen Charlotte — the powerful and romantic companion novel to the Netflix series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story — is NOW AVAILABLE in hardcover, ebook, and audio. Written by Julia Quinn and Shonda Rhimes, this is the Bridgerton-verse’s take on Queen Charlotte & King George III’s love story, and how their union sparked a societal shift.

For the first time online, you can read Chapter One from Queen Charlotte. Then order your copy and keep reading. But wait — what’s the buzz you’ve been hearing about the hardcover’s book jacket?

THE COVER: It’s reversible! One book jacket, two covers. Get the scoop from the authors themselves…

BOOK TOUR & SIGNED BOOKS: JQ is on book tour right now, but if you weren’t able to make it to one of her events, you can still order a signed copy — personalized if you wish — of Queen Charlotte. Get your copy autographed from JQ’s favorite neighborhood bookstore, University Book Store in Seattle. They carry all JQ books, and they ship worldwide.

And bonus: every book comes with a bit of author-esque swag: a beautiful bookmark (one of three different designs — which will you get?) and a magnet. And also, signed copies of the graphic novel Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron come with pigeons (sort of). Ordering your signed JQ books is easy.

*Please note that Queen Charlotte will be autographed by JQ only; Shonda Rhimes is not able to sign the books.
