Summary

Readers Await This Dramatic Conclusion to the Beacons of Hope SeriesTessa Taylor arrives in 1870s Upper Peninsula, Michigan, planning to serve as a new teacher to the town. Much to her dismay, however, she immediately learns that there was a mistake, that the town had requested a male teacher. Percival Updegraff, superintendent and chief mine clerk, says she can stay through winter since they won't be able to locate a new teacher before then, and Tessa can't help but say she is in his debt. Little does she know that Percival will indeed keep track of all that she owes him. Determined to become indispensable, Tessa throws herself into teaching, and soon the children of the widowed lighthouse keeper have decided she's the right match for their grieving father. Their uncle and assistant light keeper, Alex Bjorklund, has his own feelings for Tessa. As the two brothers begin competing for her hand, Tessa increasingly feels that someone is tracking her every move, and she may not be able to escape the trap that has been laid for her.

    Nora Roberts calls Julia Quinn’s novels, “Delightful.” The #1 New York Times bestselling creator of the irresistible Bridgerton family, Quinn offers historical romance readers new delights with A Night Like This—the second book (following the phenomenal Just Like Heaven) to feature the affairs, romantic and melodic, of the endearing, if painfully untalented, Smythe-Smith musicians. On A Night Like This in Regency England, anything can happen, especially when a beautiful pianist sitting in at the annual Smythe-Smith musicale catches the eye of a haunted, hunted man in desperate need of redemption. There is simply no author in the realm of historical romance fiction hotter than the remarkable Julia Quinn—and anyone who has ever been swept away by the love stories of Amanda Quick, Lisa Kleypas, or Jill Barnett will cherish A Night Like This.

    “I Claim, I Hold.”
    No one keeps the Clan Gunn motto closer to his heart than its war chief, Jamie Gunn. Willing to keep the tenuous peace between clans by any means necessary, he would lay down his life for his family. So when word arrives that his aunt Ailis has been kidnapped for hiding a woman in her abbey, he takes to his steed at once. 
    Lady Gilliane de Verrill came to the abbey seeking refuge from Guy de Orbrec, the cruel Norman despot who stole her hand in marriage on her father’s deathbed. When her only source of protection turns away Orbrec’s men and is kidnapped, Lady Gilliane knows there is only one thing she can do. Bearing responsibility for Ailis’ life on her shoulders, she rides off to seek help, with Orbrec’s men hot on her heels. 
    When the two meet by chance in the woods, they encounter in each others eyes more danger than even Guy de Orbrec could provide. 
    Will Jamie, struck by the beauty and kindness of this mysterious woman responsible for his aunt’s disappearance, risk his all for someone he barely knows? Can Lady Gilliane, taken by this hero seemingly lifted directly from her father’s fairy tales, look past his wild nature to the gentle man within? With a life on the line and Gilliane’s freedom at stake, their blossoming love could be their very destruction.

    At only seventeen, I left the sheltered life at the convent and married a much older Englishman. I was scared, but the idea of a life filled with parties, friends, and all the things I’d been denied seduced me. My parents had arranged this marriage for me, and how wrong could they be?
     
    Nothing turned out the way I had fantasized. Day by day, my dreams fail to materialize. No parties, no lavish trips to exotic places, and worst of all, no love.
     
    And one day, I engaged on an innocent task: planting roses for my garden, not imagining I would find love amid the thorns…and that love could come in unusual ways. And even married to an abusive and estranged husband, I make up my mind to find passion and claim it. I’m done being the good girl.
     
    My name is Chloé de la Fleur and this is my story.
     
    If you are a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey and authors Maya Banks and Sylvia Day, you will love this scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly romantic and unusual love story, which involves three alpha Italian knights who will do anything for their baroness—oops, their Principessa.
