About the Author
From the Back Cover
Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, her London season offered no prospects. Now visiting the Dorset coast, Poppy is thrilled to discover a smugglers' hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and stow her, bound and gagged, on the ship captain's bed . . .
Known as a reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby is actually an agent of the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he's stunned to find a woman in his cabin--a Bridgerton, no less. He knows he may have to wed her to avert a scandal--though Poppy has no idea he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to intoxicating passion. But when Andrew's secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart . . . ?--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The story is predictable of how these two end together. It was characters witty humour

Poppy Bridgerton, bored with society life, gets a little more adventure than she expected when she stumbles across a smuggler's cove and is kidnapped by pirates. Luckily for Poppy (but maybe slightly disappointingly for readers like me), these are nice pirates, led by Captain Andrew James, who treat Poppy generally respectfully, even while they are holding her captive. There is more to Captain James than meets the eye, and he does not reveal his full identity to Poppy, for reasons frankly known only to Andrew.
Captain Andrew is a nice hero, on the whole gentlemanly with just a hint of a rogue. He assumes for most of the book that he will have to marry Poppy for propriety's sake, so you really don't feel that her reputation is ever in too much risk. Poppy is a fun heroine, who has good banter with Andrew.
This books started off very gentle and pleasant, and I thought it was going to be a simple, sweet romance until about halfway though when the plot takes a sudden dramatic turn halfway through, much to my delight. Suddenly the characters are thrown into peril and danger and I found it much more exciting.
The end, once it arrived, wrapped up very quickly. As the story is told mainly from Poppy's POV, some of the action takes place off the page and Andrew's identity reveal is dealt with very quickly. I maybe would have liked just a little more from them before the got their HEA.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Other Miss Bridgerton and while it may not be my favourite Julia Quinn novel, it is definitely one I will enjoy again. I'm also looking forward to reading the fourth and final book in the series, First Comes Scandal.
