A Bonus Scene from The Other Miss Bridgerton

March 22, 2020

Have you been meaning to read The Other Miss Bridgerton? You can start reading with first two chapters on my website if you want a little taste.

If you’ve already read The Other Miss Bridgerton, I have something for you, too: a deleted scene! And because we all need something a little special right now while we’re social distancing, at the end of my deleted scene is a link to one from Eloisa James!

The Other Miss Bridgerton is book 3 in the Rokesby series (though you can read them in any order). The fourth and final book, First Comes Scandal, releases on April 21. The first two chapters are already online for your reading pleasure. And don’t forget — pre-ordering means you’ll get the book as soon as it comes out!

First Comes Scandal: Chapter Two! (But first let’s wash our hands)

March 16, 2020

TeamJQ was supposed to hold this second excerpt until April, but things are getting grim and some brand new levity is, we think, the least we can do to help out. So clean off your phone, tablet, or keyboard, and wash your hands for a good 20 seconds.

Go ahead, we’ll wait.

Ta-da! Chapter 2 of First Comes Scandal is now posted on JQ’s site. Start at the beginning, or if you’ve already read Chapter 1, you can jump right to Chapter 2, in which our hero feels rather backed into a corner.

Have you preordered First Comes Scandal? No? Oh, we definitely recommend it. You’re going to want to know what happens at the dinner party, because that’s after Chapter 2, and if you preorder, you can have First Comes Scandal in your hands the day it releases: April 21.

Happy Reading! ~TeamJQ

That’s a Wrap!

March 3, 2020

Filming has officially wrapped on Season One of Bridgerton! This means we now move into the post-production phase, and after that, translation for subtitles and dubbing so that the series can premiere simultaneously around the world.

No news yet on a release date, but when we know, we’ll announce it here on In the meantime, you can click REMIND ME in your Netflix interface.

While you’re waiting for the show, check out the recently posted CHAPTER ONE from JQ’s upcoming First Comes Scandal, releasing soon: April 21! Preorder yours!
