It’s In His Kiss by Julia Quinn

It’s In His Kiss is the next book in the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn. This one starts a year after the last three take place.

A quote from It's in His Kiss by Julia Quinn

Gareth St. Clair is the hero of It’s In His Kiss. He’s the grandson of Lady Danbury, who we met back in The Duke and I. At the beginning of the book, we travel back ten years to find out with Gareth that he was not Lord St. Clair’s son. It’s no small wonder that Gareth and Lord St Clair had a contentious relationship.

Hyacinth Bridgerton, the youngest of the Bridgertons, who never knew her father, is still on the Marriage Mart after 3 years. She is a huge favorite with Lady Danbury. After all, Hyacinth comes over every Tuesday and reads to her.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In It’s in His Kiss, it really all starts at the Smythe-Smith musicale. Hyacinth attends with her sister-in-law Penelope. Lady Danbury guilt-trips her grandson in attending. It’s one of the first times that Hyacinth really gets the chance to spend time with Gareth.

Gareth awakens to the fact that his grandmother is trying to matchmake, but his desire to get his grandmother’s diary, which was written in Italian, translated has him talking about it in front of Hyacinth. Hyacinth offers to translate as she had an Italian governess as a child and knows some Italian.


This is back to being like the other Bridgerton books. Hyacinth and Gareth reminded me of Daphne and Simon a bit. This might be my favorite of the Bridgertons. I love the scenes between Hyacinth and Violet. This book is a definite must read from me for anyone who likes historical romances.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
