Anne Wynter is not who she says she is, but then who is? Anne has fled her past and has landed several positions as a companion and now governess. Anne likes her job but now with the young earl back she is distracted with his charm. She finds herself thinking of love but will leave that notion when danger has followed her to London. She will protect Daniel the best she can as her own reputation had been shredded years ago.
Daniel Smythe-Smith has returned after three years only to find his best friend being intimate with his sister. The only thing a brother can do is punch his sisters beau. Once the blood is whipped away Daniel will find there is a happy ending for his sister and now he will be going towards his own especially when he finds Anne Wynster the governess. She intrigues him to no end but with danger close at hand Daniel has to be careful to keep Anne away from harm.
A Night Like This is the second book to the Smythe-Smith Quartet from Julia Quinn. I really liked this book. After the first book I had high hopes and was not disappointed. Quinn takes off right where the first book ended which I liked.
A Night Like This was cute, whimsical and true to Quinn’s writing. Of course now the book was lighthearted but there was more to the plot with the act of revenge that could come from either character. Quinn really writes her characters well as they have more to offer than what is on the surface.
After reading this book I am certainly interested on who will be next to step away from the music in the Smythe-Smith Quartet.
