What To Read After The Viscount Who Loved Me

I personally would recommend you to complete reading the Bridgerton series. 

If you’ve already read The Duke and I and The Viscount Who Loved Me, you have read 2 out of 8 siblings’ love story.

If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, I encourage you to read the rest of the series as there is a lot more romance to explore.
