Publisher's Summary

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 10-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....

just ok

I love Julia Quinn and look forward to her books but this one is just okay. I found it frustrating in places and was looking forward to the end which is something I rarely do. A couple of times I even checked to see how much time was left before it ended. One dud amoungst her many other marvelous books is acceptable. I'ts not a bad or boring book entirely just not up to her usual standards.
The narrator Rosalyn Landor is faultless as always.

Not what I'd hoped for

I have loved Julia Quinn's books forever. I have grown to expect enjoyable characters presented with humor. Fun books to read. This one was more your average historical romance with less of the humor I love from Julia Quinn. I enjoyed the children in this book, but more could have happened with them - she doesn't milk the unicorn girl for all she's worth. I still enjoyed the novel, it just wasn't fabulous, and usually Quinn is close to fabulous.

Entertaining

I agree with the other review, this was an easy read and I found it quite entertaining. I had to chuckle, imagining the precocious 10-year-old battling with a contra bassoon however. She would have needed large hands at the very least...

I'm rather disappointed.

It's an ease read, but reminds me too much of the previous books of this author. Julia Queen didn't surprise me at all. It wasn't even that funny, unlike her previous books.
