A Night Like This

About the Book:

Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is . . .

But she’s managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge—in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy—no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he’s the first man who has truly tempted her, and it’s getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman.

Daniel Smythe-Smith Might be in mortal danger . . .

But that’s not going to stop the young earl from falling in love. And when he spies a mysterious woman at his family’s annual musicale, he vows to pursue her, even if that means spending his days with a ten-year-old who thinks she’s a unicorn. But Daniel has an enemy, one who has vowed to see him dead. And when Anne is thrown into peril, he will stop at nothing to ensure their happy ending .. .

My Thoughts:

Who doesn't love Julia Quinn's books?  She is an amazing writer, which is why her books are bestsellers.  However, A Night Like This takes her writing to a whole new level.  The romance is intriguing, mysterious, funny, multi-layered and full of unique characters. In fact, I fell in love with the characters instantly. I loved how the book opens and instantly Daniels enemy is revealed, keeping you on your toes about those he comes in contact with. The twist is Anne's secret and the root of her fears.  While reading this book you're given a little bit of everything.  From romance to suspense, from laughter to fear and uncertainty, this title has quite the story to tell with romance in-between.  I loved it.

About Julia Quinn

Perennial bestseller Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don’t read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a da Vinci long before there was a code.
Her most recent novel, The Lost Duke of Wyndham, reached #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
