She was in the wrong place...
Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers’ hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain’s bed…
He found her at the wrong time...
Known as a reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he’s stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real—and his duty to the Crown means he’s stuck with her.
Can two wrongs make the most perfect right?
When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal—though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew’s secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart…?

Poppy Bridgerton, bored with society life, gets a little more adventure than she expected when she stumbles across a smuggler's cove and is kidnapped by pirates. Luckily for Poppy (but maybe slightly disappointingly for readers like me), these are nice pirates, led by Captain Andrew James, who treat Poppy generally respectfully, even while they are holding her captive. There is more to Captain James than meets the eye, and he does not reveal his full identity to Poppy, for reasons frankly known only to Andrew.
Captain Andrew is a nice hero, on the whole gentlemanly with just a hint of a rogue. He assumes for most of the book that he will have to marry Poppy for propriety's sake, so you really don't feel that her reputation is ever in too much risk. Poppy is a fun heroine, who has good banter with Andrew.
This books started off very gentle and pleasant, and I thought it was going to be a simple, sweet romance until about halfway though when the plot takes a sudden dramatic turn halfway through, much to my delight. Suddenly the characters are thrown into peril and danger and I found it much more exciting.
The end, once it arrived, wrapped up very quickly. As the story is told mainly from Poppy's POV, some of the action takes place off the page and Andrew's identity reveal is dealt with very quickly. I maybe would have liked just a little more from them before the got their HEA.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Other Miss Bridgerton and while it may not be my favourite Julia Quinn novel, it is definitely one I will enjoy again. I'm also looking forward to reading the fourth and final book in the series, First Comes Scandal.
