Do you remember Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron? This gloriously over-the-top gothic novel first appeared in It’s in His Kiss before making a riotous reappearance in What Happens in London. (Who can forget Sebastian Grey’s dramatic recitation, complete with an audience of three housemaids, a butler, and a Russian prince.) I had so much fun with this book-within-a-book that I brought it back in a big way in Ten Things I Love About You (can’t say more; spoiler territory) and then once again in Just Like Heaven. And now, as a graphic novel! ~JQ
Here is the official book description:
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn, comes her first playfully illustrated graphic novel. Based on story snippets that are peppered throughout a number of her novels and enjoyed by her characters who read them, this is that tale in its entirety—an irresistible treat for her fans who are in the know and pure entertainment for all others.
Born into a happy family that is tragically ravaged by smallpox, Miss Priscilla Butterworth uses her wits to survive a series of outlandish trials. Cruelly separated from her beloved mother and grandmother, the young girl is sent to live with a callous aunt who forces her to work for her keep. Eventually, the clever and tenderhearted Miss Butterworth makes her escape… a daring journey into the unknown that unexpectedly leads her to the “mad” baron and a lifetime of love.
Delightfully illustrated by Violet Charles, and told in Julia Quinn’s playful voice, Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron is a high-spirited nineteenth-century romp that will entertain and enchant modern readers.

Once upon a time, a historical romance author created a family…
But not just any family. Eight brothers and sisters, assorted in-laws, sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, (not to mention an overweight corgi), plus an irrepressible matriarch who’s a match for any of them… These are the Bridgertons: less a family than a force of nature. Through eight bestselling novels, readers laughed, cried, and fell in love. But they wanted more.
And so the readers asked the author…
What happened next? Does Simon ever read his father’s letters? Do Francesca and Michael become parents? Who would win in a Pall Mall grudge match?
Does “The End” really have to be the end?
Now, with The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After, Julia Quinn delivers eight sexy, funny, and heartwarming “2nd Epilogues,” plus a bonus story about none other than the wise and witty Violet Bridgerton herself. So get to know the Bridgertons all over again—because Happily Ever After is a whole lot of fun.
