Bridgerton plot

The story follows Daphne Bridgerton – the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family – as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Daphne is portrayed by Phoebe Dynevor.

Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. However, her quest takes a turn when her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors.

“The high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown asts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings, committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas”.

Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
