Daphne also becomes a target for Lady Whistledown’s scandal sheet.

Daphne then comes into contact with the insubordinate Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) and they come together to develop a plan that will keep her safe.

Which book is Bridgerton based on?

Bridgerton is based on series of historical romance novels by Julia Quinn.

It tells the stories of the high society single young men and women looking for love.
