I am a Julia Quinn fan and state so openly. Every year I look forward to her latest book and overall there have been very few misses for me. A NIGHT LIKE THIS is a complete romantic home run and so enchanting I could not put it down. The Smythe-Smith Family is as entertaining as the Bridgerton’s were and have a wonderful sense of fun around life experiences.

As a fan of Claude Monet’s I am always moved by how he took the negatives in his life to make them positives. No one liked his paintings, they criticized his innovative style, but what he thought was okay he went with. Life may knock you around but look for the one shining moment in the day and celebrate a Little Victory.
A NIGHT LIKE THIS by Julia Quinn
Smythe-Smith Quartet Series , #2
Will my heartfelt dreams ever be fulfilled?
Running, hiding, and always looking over your shoulder are no way to live. Both Daniel Smythe-Smith, the Earl of Winstead and Anne Wynter have been chasing and trying not to be noticed for too many years. Daniel is finally free of his demon, or so he hopes and finds Anne just when things are looking up is no coincidence.
Anne’s poor decisions created a situation where she cannot reveal her true identity. She needs the governess job she holds to make sure she can survive and still looks over her shoulder every moment of the day. Daniel is more than a distraction for her; he is a complete and total obsession. The feelings are mutual for both of them and they know the obstacles. The question becomes which one will have the good sense to stop a relationship before it starts. Anne will allow one kiss to hopefully put a stop to it all but that one moment of bliss is the heart of every magical moment either of them could have imagined.
Daniel will pursue, Anne will taunt, and both will make wishes upon stars in the night. But will any of it fulfill their desire to be together. What Daniel wants he normally achieves but this time the hurdles are society as well as family with both proving to be daunting opponents what the heart wants. When Daniel becomes Anne’s protector and they both show how strong they are together perhaps, the walls between them can come down.
Julia Quinn has the ability to take the written word and turn it into a magical experience. Readers are always treated to the joy of romance and the passion that comes from the simple touch of a hand.
