Following the first season of Netflix's series Bridgerton; Viscount Anthony Bridgerton has vowed to marry, but not for love following the devastation of his theatrical ex lover. He has come to a realization that he must marry for status and the well being of his family considering his powerful stance. Will the broken viscount really marry with no feelings whatsoever, or will he fall head over heels for the woman of his unknowing dreams. Baroness Veronica Kingston is the diamond of the social season just how Daphne Bridgerton was the year prior. But with a scandalous past Veronica's title seems to be nothing but a shell. With pressure from her powerful Northern Baron father Grayson Kingston, Veronica is given the harsh expectation of marrying one of high status members of the peerage system. This could range anywhere from a Prince to a Duke, Viscount, and possibly an Earl or Baron if the attraction towards Veronica is not as strong as predicted by the queen. Now the only question is, can Veronica fill the shoes of all the diamonds of the social seasons like the ones before her? Or will she fail to find a suitable match? Or possibly will both the Viscount and the Baroness' problems be solved within one another A story of scandal, love, friendship, betrayal, and bloodshed.
