‘The Duke and I’, the first book in Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series, inspired the first season of the hit Netflix series. The second season, which followed Anthony and Kate, borrowed its plot from the second book, ‘The Viscount Who Loved Me’. 

The intense love story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), captured viewers’ attention in the first season. Their whirlwind romance, fueled by forbidden desire and societal pressures, kept viewers glued to their screens.
