4.5 stars!!! A very entertaining story about a young opera singer who needs to stop singing for 6 months due to a vocal infection. She ends up being a nanny for a famous opera supporter who has decided that he isn't going to employ anymore up and coming singers. (They seem to throw themselves at him versus taking care of his daughter.) Her deception ends up being the "big" misunderstanding and he throws her out telling her never to return.

I truly liked the hero and heroine. Except for his major
Solid vintage romance about an opera singer who must rest her voice and ends up taking care of a prominent opera promoter's daughter. She keeps her singing ability a secret since the promoter has been chased by ambitious singers who neglect his daughter. A great deal of the story concerns the heroine's efforts taming the daughter, which are quite entertaining. There's an OW and a reckoning when the hero finds out the heroine has lied, but the angst is short-lived. An enjoyable story.
3.5 Loved my visit into the world of opera. This one put me in mind of Mary Burchell's musical books. Very abrupt ending.

I really liked this old school HP. It had all the necessary elements to be entertaining. But it was one of those situations where everything would've gone smoother had the heroine not kept her secret so long.

The best part of the story was the little girl. I usually don't like children in romance books, but this kid was a funny little brat.

It was delightful! If you are tired of reading about the usual HP heroes, I suggest you read this book. It was quite refreshing to see a man who did not always snarl at the heroine. The hero was a real gentleman. It was a sweet story.
