Smooth Talking Stranger (Travises #3) Condemnation (War of the Spider Queen #3)

No, she said desperately, shaking her head.

Here, Phillip said magnanimously, handing his gun to Eloise, have mine. The four Bridgerton men groaned, but he decided he rather enjoyed annoying them.Thank you, Eloise said graciously. From Anthony’s bark of ’round two’ I deduce that you’ve each taken one shot?

After Sundown (Vampire Trilogy #2)

Indeed, Phillip replied. He looked over at her brothers, all of whom wore dejected expressions. What’s wrong?Anthony just shook his head.Phillip looked to Benedict.

Night Lost (Darkyn #4)

She’s a freak of nature, Benedict muttered.Phillip looked back at Eloise with renewed interest. She didn’t look particularly freakish to him.

I’m dropping out, Gregory muttered. I haven’t eaten breakfast yet.

You’ll have to ring for more, Colin told him. I already finished it all.. . . I grant that Mr. Wilson’s face does have a certain amphibious quality, but I do wish you would learn to be a bit more circumspect in your speech. While I would never consider him an acceptable candidate for marriage, he is certainly not a toad, and it ill-behooved me to have my younger sister call him thus, and in his presence.

—from Eloise Bridgerton to her sister Hyacinth,
upon refusing her fourth offer of marriageFour days later, they were married. Phillip had no idea how Anthony Bridgerton had managed it, but he’d procured a special license, allowing them to be wed without banns and on a Monday, which, Eloise assured him, was no worse than Tuesday or Wednesday, just that it wasn’t Saturday, as was proper.

Endless Summer (The Boys Next Door #2)

Eloise’s entire family, minus her widowed sister in Scotland, who hadn’t had time to make the journey, had trooped out to the country for the wedding. Normally, the ceremony would have taken place in Kent, at the Bridgerton family seat, or at the very least in London, where the family attended church regularly at St. George’s in Hanover Square, but such arrangements were not possible on such a hastened schedule, and this wasn’t an ordinary sort of wedding in any case. Benedict and Sophie had offered their home for the reception, but Eloise had felt that the twins would be more comfortable at Romney Hall, so they’d held the ceremony at the parish church down the lane, followed by a small, intimate reception on the lawn outside Phillip’s greenhouse.Later in the day, just as the sun was beginning to dip in the sky, Eloise found herself in her new bedchamber with her mother, who was busying herself by pretending to tuck away items in Eloise’s hastily gathered trousseau. It all, of course, had been taken care of by Eloise’s lady’s maid (brought up from London with the family) earlier that morning, but Eloise didn’t comment upon her mother’s idle busywork. It seemed like Violet Bridgerton simply needed something to do while she talked.

Eloise, of all people, understood that need perfectly.I should complain that I’m being denied my proper moment of glory as the mother of the bride, Violet said to her daughter as she folded her lacy veil and placed it gently on top of a bureau, but in truth I’m just happy to see you a bride.

Eloise smiled gently at her mother. You’d quite despaired of it, hadn’t you?Quite. But then she cocked her head to the side and added, Actually, no. I always thought you might surprise us in the end. You frequently do.

Eloise thought of all those years since her debut, all those rejected marriage proposals. All those weddings they’d attended, with Violet watching another of her friends marrying off another of their daughters to another fabulously eligible gentleman.Another gentleman, of course, who could now no longer marry Eloise, Lady Bridgerton’s famously on-the-shelf spinster daughter.
