And he is astonished to discover his “bride” is none other than the exquisite lady he’d hoped to make his mistress!

This is one of my favorites from Kleypas. I enjoy the steady incline of the plot and the intricacies of each character, but my favorite is how she closes her novels. The epilogue leaves the reader with true closure and a warm heart. More than anything I enjoyed the narrator. Rosalyn Landor is by far the best. I don't know how she does it, but the male characters sound rough, masculine, and sensual, while the female characters are delicate and beautiful. This is a must read!!!

"Somewhere I'll Find You" is a well written story about an arranged marriage between a Duke's heir and an extremely wealthy family's daughter. Julia's father wants a titled husband for her, and the Duke needs money to cover his gambling debts, and restore the family finances. The catch--Damon is 7 years old and Julia is 4 years old when the marriage takes place.
Lord Damon and Lady Julia know they are married, but have never met since they were children. The arranged marriage ruined both their lives. Neither are free to marry another, have children, nor lead a normal life. Julia rebels and runs away to become an actress and Lord Damon searches for her for years without success, wanting to right the wrong committed by their parents when they were children. Having taken over the finances of the Dukedom, using the money received from Julia's father, Lord Damon makes wise investments and becomes one of the foremost wealthiest men. He wants to get an annulment, see that the "bride" money is returned to Julia, so they can get on with their lives.
Busy taking care of the family Damon has not had time for fun in his life, but one night he walks down to the village during May Day; an ancient public spring festival with dancing, singing. He sees a pretty girl and on impulse asks her to dance learning she is a actress in a little known theatre, but names are not exchanged. He kisses her and leaves, but doesn't forget her. Years later he meets her again, without recognition. She has changed her name and is a well known actress. The attraction is still there. At a party to raise funds for the theatre she meets Lord Damon, and recognizes the name as her husband, but he has no idea who she is.
It's a moving story that any lover of Historical Romance should find entertaining, I certainly did.
Rosalyn Landor gave a perfect performance. Kleypas and Landor are an unbeatable combination for our listening pleasure. Well worth a credit.
