Do the best things really come to those who wait? Three years have passed since Francesca’s and Michael’s marriage, and they are still childless. And Francesca wonders, can a woman be truly and completely happy when a little piece of her heart remains empty? But just when she makes peace with her fate, something unexpected occurs.
The story of Francesca and Michael, When He Was Wicked is not my favorite novel of the Bridgerton series. But this novella is the best of the line of the second epilogues. First, it is about the two of them, and not someone else. Second, it is emotional and sweet.

“I’m told,” Michael said in an amused voice, “that I was involved in his creation, too, but I have yet to see any evidence.”
Francesca looked at him with so much love that it nearly took Violet’s breath away. “He has your charm,” she said.
