If you liked Bridgerton you will adore the Carsington series by Loretta Chase, beginning with Miss Wonderful. Too many romance novels sacrifice dialogue for sex. Not this one, or its sequels. Mirabel Oldridge challenges the Honorable Alistair Carsington mentally, emotionally, socially, politically, and when he finally manages to get his hands on her, physically. One of the few novels you will read where the topic of canals leads to seduction.
And book 3, Lord Perfect, has what I consider to be a simply perfect (see what I did there) ending that will make you cry (in a good way).
