She was forced to flee to London and leave her position as a lady’s maid due to false accusations. Rosalyn found herself in London without a penny to her name, homeless and broken. Then she found the Opera. She landed a job backstage and worked her heart out falling in love with music and dancing all over again.
Our second main character is Nate Moran. His heart belongs to the military but he was injured and sent home from the army until he is fully recovered. He is miserable. He ends up working as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother so he does not lose his job. While Nate is in town he is doing everything he can to help his family while counting down the days until he can rejoin his regiment.
Nate and Rosalyn become friends but you can tell Nate may want something more. For sure, the Moran family wishes him to fall in love with Rosalyn so hopefully, he’ll stay and not rejoin his regiment. But Nate seems to have been put into the dreaded friend zone. What will happen? Will Nate and Rosalyn become more? Or will Rosalyn fall in love with someone else?
