Somewhere I'll Find You

Somewhere I'll Find You by Lisa Kleypas (1996)

Pages: 384

ISBN: 0380781433

Description: All London is at Julia Wentworth's feet - and anything she desires is hers for the asking. But the glamorous leading lady guards a shocking secret: a mystery husband whom she does not know, dares not mention... and cannot love.

For years Damon Savage has been searching for the stranger his parents wed him to without his consent, hoping to legally free himself from matrimony's invisible chains. And he is astonished to discover his "bride" is none other than the exquisite lady he'd hoped to make his mistress! But though his wife by law, Julia will never truly be Damon's until he conquers her fears, his formidable rivals... and her proud, passionate, and independent heart.

Review: The premise behind this book is somewhat odd. The main characters were married when they were children. Now they don't want have anything to do with each other. In order to hide from her "husband" Julia becomes an actress under an assumed name. Ironically she meets the man she loathes... her husband, only to realize that he isn't so bad. For the most part I enjoyed this tale, but towards the end I began to get so frustrated with Julia that I wanted to slap her. Not a bad read.

Score: 3 out of 5
