Erotic Book Club – The January 2021 Selection

I was originally going to choose a different book (don’t worry…I just put it off until February), until I found out about this new Netflix series, Bridgerton. I’m always slightly behind the times when it comes to television shows, and I rarely watch anything simply for my own benefit. But this one sounds delicious. I’ve always been a fan of period dramas, and if a little sexy intrigue is mixed in, well…all the better, I say!

I’m sort of a stickler for reading things before I watch their film or television adaptation, so I decided I’d better rush and get this one on the calendar so I can watch the series as soon as possible (I’ve heard very good things about it!).

So, without further ado, I give you my January 2021 selection for the Erotic Book Club:

Bridgerton: The Duke & I
by Julia Quinn
(book #1 of a 9 book series)

Amazon’s synopsis: By all accounts, Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend’s sister—the lovely and almost-on-the-shelf—Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of them know the truth—it’s all an elaborate ruse to keep Simon free from marriage-minded society mothers. And as for Daphne, surely she will attract some worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable.

But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, it’s hard to remember that their courtship is a sham. Maybe it’s his devilish smile, certainly it’s the way his eyes seem to burn every time he looks at her . . . but somehow Daphne is falling for the dashing duke . . . for real! And now she must do the impossible and convince the handsome rogue that their clever little scheme deserves a slight alteration, and that nothing makes quite as much sense as falling in love.

Available in various formats, including audiobook.
Watch on Netflix

I’ll post discussion questions the last week of the month and announce the February selection at that time, as well, to give anyone interested time enough to track down a copy of the book. Discussions will remain open, so no need to hurry; you can always come back to them when you are ready!

  1. Ahhh Brigit, now I get why you told me you were reading this book! I’d love to join in with you, but I have so many reading tasks on my plate at the moment. I wonder if I can ….

    1. I do, too! I belong to a regular book club, am going to school (so there is quite a bit of reading), and I started this Erotic Book Club as a way to push myself to read more sexy stuff (it helps with my libido, if I’m perfectly honest). I will try my best to read along with the group, too.

  2. I’ve read a few of her books. I find them to be funny, mostly — she has a good sense of humor — if completely unrealistic. 2020 feminism was non-existent in Recency England. But if I can suspend disbelief for Mystery and Adventure books, I can extend the same courtesy to Romance. 😉

    (She’s local too. FYI.)

    1. Oh…awesome, I didn’t realize she was local! I’ve never read anything by her, but since I have some friends who are really digging on the new Netflix series, I decided I’d give it a go. I’m not normally a romance reader, but I’m trying to support erotica/romance authors. I’m actually looking forward to this one. It looks fun.
