A Night at the Opera by Stacy Henrie

Night at the OperaNight at the Opera by Stacy Henrie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Historical Romance

Book Description:  An unforgettable kiss. A kaleidoscope of senses. A night she'll always remember.

From USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie, comes NIGHT AT THE OPERA, An American Heiress novel.

When American heiress Gwen Barton aids an injured gentleman in an opera box in London, she shares a kiss with the stranger that changes her life. More determined than ever to be herself, in spite of the limp she’s sustained since childhood, she will marry for love and not a title. She also resolves to learn the identity of the man she helped—and kissed. Surely he can’t be the irritating Avery Winfield, though. But as circumstances continue to throw Gwen and Avery together, she begins to wonder if there is more to this man than she first thought.

While most of London only knows him as the nephew of a duke, Avery Winfield is actually working for the Secret Service Bureau to ferret out German spies from among the ton. It’s a profession that gives him purpose and a reason to remain a bachelor. But the more he interacts with Gwen Barton, an heiress from America, the more he begins to question his plans and neglected faith. Then he learns Gwen is the young lady from the opera box who helped him. Now his most important mission may have nothing to do with saving Britain from danger and everything to do with risking his heart for the woman he met that night at the opera.

My thoughts: Who knew that a night at the opera can change the course of a life?

Gwen Barton is a woman with a good head on her shoulders. She is smart and adapts well to the situations that come her way. Her good deed in helping an injured man at the opera leads to intrigue, danger, and romance.

This book was a joy to read. I loved my moments in the Edwardian Era with Gwen and Avery. They make a good team, even though it takes them a while to figure it out. I was rooting for them from the moment they met, even though they had many obstacles to overcome.

This is one of those books that make you feel good while you are reading it. I give it a high recommendation.
