    So, yes, in theory we could have eight seasons of Bridgerton, and I am so ready for it. And, of course, the show could completely stray from the books, but it's still cool to see where they are pulling stories from.

    So, here's what each book is about, where you can buy it, and all of that good stuff:

    Also, there are some spoilers for Season 1 of Bridgerton below!

    1. The Duke and I

    Just like Bridgerton Season 1, The Duke and I follows Daphne Bridgerton as she seeks a husband and ends up falling in love with Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. The book tells the story of how they went from their fake relationship to falling in love for real. There are some differences between the book and Season 1, so it's worth giving this book a read too.

    Book 5 in the Bridgerton series is all about low-key the best Bridgerton, Eloise. To Sir Phillip, With Love follows Phillip Crane, who proposes to Eloise without ever meeting her.

Eloise soon learns that Phillip is nothing like the other London boys, and she begins to wonder if marriage might actually be something she wants.
