Because of Miss Bridgerton: A Bridgerton Prequel (Mass Market)
Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...
This is not one of those times.
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.
Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...
There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.
But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...
Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...

Wow oh wow, this book is so special, and so lovely, and so dear. This book is a gift to the world. In Prince and the Dressmaker, we meet Prince Sebastian of Paris, who is working hard to uphold a good image for the kingdom with a lot of weight on his shoulders. And part of that weight is his biggest secret: at night, he dresses in stunning gowns and becomes Lady Crystallia, a Parisian icon of fashion and beauty! Not a soul knows Sebastian’s secret, until the palace’s new dressmaker Frances discovers his secret, and the two become best friends, working together to create more and more stunning dresses and looks for Lady Crystallia, until this secret begins to conflict with Frances’ dream of becoming a world-renowned dressmaker... This book is gorgeously drawn and fantastically written, a story of love, friendship, and most of all, being true to yourself. This book is an absolute fairytale!
