    Summary

    Dearest reader,

    The time has come to place our bets on the marriage mart of 1815. As the ton casts it's discerning gaze on the budding romances of this year's social season, we should not neglect to keep a watchful eye on the married couples of the past. It is true that no outsider knows what goes on in a marriage behind closed doors. Only time will tell - and of course, this author.

    Yours truly,
    Lady Whistledown

    Summary

    This fic covers Kate Sharma and Anthony Bridgerton’s love story, as portrayed in Bridgerton Season 2. This story will explore both Kate’s and Anthony’s POVs during all their scenes throughout the eight episodes, as well as missing/extra moments that I like to imagine could have happened off-screen.

    Hope you enjoy. Any feedback is really appreciated :)

    Summary

    “Is that what you want from me, to reconsider?” Anthony asked rather urgently.

    Kate hesitated, did she want him to reconsider? Yes, desperately, but she could not to that to Edwina. “It does not matter what I want,” she whispered, eyes cast down.

    “I do not think that is true.”

    Kate looked at him sharply, “I did not think you a hypocrite, Lord Bridgerton.”

    What if Kate and Anthony had actually communicated at the ball at Aubrey Hall? What if they had realized that giving up their happiness entirely for their families was in no ones best interest? What if they were willing to risk their hearts?

    An expanded version of Chapter 5 of I Guess I’m In Love from my Kate and Anthony Week submission.

    Summary

    A few months after Anthony marries Edwina, Kate marries a Duke in order to stay in London to be close to her sister.
    Both marriages are not what Kate and Anthony pictured for their happily ever after.

    It's been years since the entire family has seen or heard from Kate, and now Edwina has run off in the middle of the night, leaving nothing but a short letter behind.

    The road to happy endings are never easy.

    Summary

    Eloise was at best, furious with her, at worst, no longer her friend. Colin had promised to look out for her, told her she was special to him, then not 15 minutes later was amongst his friends deriding her in a fashion Cressida Cowper would have cackled at. Her mother had worked with her late father’s successor to scam the Ton out of God only knew how much money, whilst gambling with her sister’s reputation by engaging her to said criminal.

    The chips have fallen where they may and now Penelope must put things in motion. This was not one of her favorite plans but it served its purpose and aided with a big non-Whistledown problem.

    Secrets have hurt her family and hopefully she can clear the air.

    Summary

    To everyone's surprise (save four people), Kate Sharma is named the diamond of the 1814 season. Accomplished at everything from a frankly astounding number of languages to cooking (of all things!), she takes London by storm. If fate is in the cards, why not toss the cards up in the air and see where they land?

    –––

    Kate is the diamond; Anthony is trapped (but not really) into courting her; Benedict and Colin combine forces to a lethal degree; Edwina is Kate's Number One Champion; Mary plays marriage politics rather well.

    Summary

    “Explain it to me. What did you mean?”

    “Merely that if you weren’t Viscount Bridgerton, you wouldn’t have to be so obsessed with appearances and bloodlines and proper demure ladies approved of by the ton. My essentially penniless lowborn origins and my defiant tempestuous nature might not be such a hindrance.”

    “What does that mean?”

    “If you were the second son, I would have the freedom to pursue you.”

    “Pursue?”

    “Pursue… Persuade… Seduce…” She takes another step toward him with each word, and suddenly he’s the one feeling cornered, overpowered, breathless. “Hunt you with patience and perseverance, as I would do if stalking a tiger through the jungle. Until I’ve taken you for my own.”

    She’s been frighteningly competent at everything he’s seen her take on, hasn’t she? Why would he expect her to be a guileless debutante quivering at the suggestion of sensuality? He’s a fool. She had warned him off his habit of underestimating her.

    “I would hunt you. I would unmake you. So that you would know what true value is. You would be glad to be possessed by a woman like me. And proud to possess me in return.”

    Anthony has never been so utterly destroyed by a mere idea.

    Summary

    Kate Sharma and Anthony Bridgerton both have high stress jobs. When friends/family force each of them to attend a week-long silent meditation retreat to relax, neither takes it seriously (or is very happy about it). After a few flirty exchanges between them, things get steamy, and they try to make the most of their otherwise frustrating week. Though they part ways expecting their time together to have been no more than a fling, when they return home, it becomes apparent that Kate and Anthony aren’t the total strangers they thought they were.

    Summary

    Anthony’s heart hammered in anticipation of finally, finally feeling her skin against his own. “Miss Sharma,” he repeated, silently daring her to take his grasp.

    “Lord Bridgerton,” she hissed, relenting as she placed her own bare hand in his, stepping out of the boat and onto the dock. As the air went static around them, the pair stood for a brief moment, gazes equal, neither able to move.

    Mesmerized by her close proximity, Anthony subtly adjusted his grip on Kate’s hand, guiding it up and turning it so her palm was facing his nose, his index finger and thumb wrapping around the delicate curve of her wrist. Holding her line of sight, he bent ever so slightly forward, brushing its pointed tip against the thin skin of her pulse…and sniffed.

    Summary

    A long time ago, Bridgertons and Sharmas were friends linked by their control over Chaos and the blood oath made to never hurt each other. But things changed. Friendship turned into hatred, and they are now rivals that resort to inconveniencing and annoying each other. So when the Sharmas returned to London after years away on disgrace, the rivalry between the two families reaches a peak, especially between Anthony and the eldest Sharma girl, Kate, to whom he is completely drawn despite their mutual hostility. Can they really find harmony in chaos?

    Summary

    "I've been thinking.." Anthony grabs her hand. "I want to do something, but only if you agree to it." He looks insecure and Kate's heartbeat increases. She feels somewhat comforted by his touch and when he slowly drops to his knees to face her she knows this isn't going to be a bad thing.
    "What is it Anthony?" She tries to sound as steady as possible.
    Anthony clears his throat. "I hope I'm not overstepping and it might come out of the blue, but if you'll manage to work things out with your sister in a way that soothes you, I want to provide her with a dowry…"
    "Wh.. what?" This was the last thing Kate suspected. "Why?"
    "Because she's family." Anthony whispers, "And I know how much you love her."

     

    Set after episode 8, where Kate eventually tells Edwina what's on *her* mind, how her sisters words and her behavior made her feel.

    Encouraged by her husband, Kate tries to takes the necessary steps to rebuild her relationship with Edwina but at first all she gets in return is anger and rejection...
