About the book:
Warm-hearted Victorian romance brings 1880s London to life.
When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater that is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
A hand injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he's glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can't wait to leave behind.

My Thoughts:

This is the first book of Ms. Delamere's that I've had the pleasure to read, and I'm so glad that it is the first book in a series. I hate getting in on the second or third book in a series of a new author to me. I always feel like I've missed so much!

In this sweet book, we get a look at the streets of London from an every day person's point of view which I really liked. Sometimes when characters are the cream of the crop the every day life that we all relate to can get lost. I also enjoyed behind the scenes at the theater. The romance between Rosalyn and Nate is sweet and happened gradually, it wasn't rushed. 

Overall this is a great beginning to a new series, perfect to stuff in your bag for the beach, park, or wherever you may be going this summer.

Jennifer Delamere's debut Victorian romance, "An Heiress at Heart," was a 2013 RITA award finalist in the inspirational category. Her follow-up novel, "A Lady Most Lovely," received a starred review from "Publishers Weekly" and the Maggie Award for Excellence from Georgia Romance Writers. Jennifer earned a BA in English from McGill University in Montreal, where she became fluent in French and developed an abiding passion for winter sports. She's been an editor of nonfiction and educational materials for nearly two decades, and lives in North Carolina with her husband.

Book two in the series is set to release in 2018.

This cover is so pretty!
