    You do not have to have read the other brigerton books to read this.Francesca is married to John Earl of Kilmartin whom she loves(he loves her and is a good husband - there is nothing wrong with him unlike in some books!), she is freinds with his best friend and cousin Michael.Michael has loved Francesca from the moment he saw her but has kept that fact hidden from all.The story starts with Johns death and deals with the horror of finding your husband dead, well, but with a light touch that stops it from being a depressing book.From Michaels perspective it deals with the fact that he now inherits the title, land and money that was Johns. Whilst only ever wanting Francesca, it deals well with how he views/feels about all the changes.So the book then becomes the journey of how they end up together, realising their emotions and accepting others. The 'romantic' scenes are hot but blend and feel very much a part of the story.It is a beautifully writen book blending strong emotions with the lightest brush strokes of humour whilst keeping the feel of the regency time without the clichés of a lot of other regency romances.

    Julia Quinn is brilliant. She breaks the received romance molds and reshapes stories that are absolutely unforgettable. Michael Stirling is one of my favourite heroes of ALL TIMES. He's Mr. Darcy without pride and prejudice. He's just too delicious. He's everything a hero should be. I LOVE him! Which is why Francesca is secondary for me and I accept her as a Bridgerton because JQ says so. This is one of my top 3 favourite Bridgerton books (the irony). It's unusual also because the book opens with Michael's pov and often reverts to it. Francesca's pov is quantitatively less than Michael's I think, but I wouldn't have it any other way. And that scene in the HOT! Must-read.

    "When He Was Wicked" is the story of Francesca Bridgerton and it comes chronologically after "An Offer For A Gentleman" and is the fifth book in the series although some of this book is contemporaneous with "Romancing Mr Bridgerton" and "From Sir Philip With Love".If you like any of the other Bridgerton series you will of course enjoy this book - it contains Julia Quinn's trademark sparkling dialogue (although less humour in this instalment) and her good pacing and interesting characters. Like her other Regencies, historical accuracy isn't a major interest and so you'll find errors in speech and other things but it doesn't matter too much in this book as the rest of the story is so good.Other reviewers have summarised it but basically Francesca Bridgerton is happily married to John Stirling, Earl Of Kilmartin, and is oblivious to the fact that John's cousin Michael is in love with her. When John dies unexpectedly Francesca turns to Michael for cousinly support but he can't deal with the guilt of his cousin's death and the fact that he has inherited the earldom and runs away to India. Francesca does a bit of running away in this novel too and it takes some time for the pair of them to get their heads straight and realise what other people do - that they would make a good marriage.This book is rather more detailed in the bedroom than some of the others - it has several seduction scenes. These are actually done rather well and the romance is there in this book as the two protagonists dance around each other trying to make sense of their feelings. The dialogue is characterised by half-sentences and "I don't know what I feel" and stuff like that but I suppose that's more accurate in terms of real conversations than full sentences. The interactions with the other Bridgertons are also in this book although not as annoyingly as in some others and thank goodness the wretched Lady Whistledown isn't in this one!All in all it was a good read and tackled the subject of bereavement and the feelings of guilt that those left behind may feel very well.
