The passion, friendship, and loyalty they develop is breathtaking and a delight to watch unfold. SOMEBODY TO LOVE is well written; the dialogue is fresh, and the characters amazing in their intensity. The secondary characters add an unusual flare to the tale and give readers a glimpse into who Ariminta and Griffin truly are.

    A tale of love, pride and suspense┬┐

    Kate Rothwell¿s ¿Somebody to Love¿ follows the exploits of the Calverson family, this time centering on Timona Calverson¿s worldly and successful brother, Griffin, and her best friend ¿ Araminta. Araminta Woodhall, the Calverson¿s family cook, left to work with Linder Kane, a wealthy, albeit cruel man who keeps his mistress, Olivia, captive in his house, one he repeatedly beats into submission. Araminta realizes Kane¿s treacherous side all too soon, yet stays for two reasons: one is to save enough money to open her own restaurant; the second is her desire to help Olivia escape Kane. If she can only convince Olivia to leave¿ Griffin Calverson has his reasons for being isolated. He has no mother. His father hunts dinosaur bones and has no interest in overseeing the family wealth. It was up to Griffin to keep a watchful eye over his younger sister until she married. A man of many worldly successes, Griffin learns that Linder Kane, a deceitful man, might be trying to steal his company. Since the two of them have not met, Griffin visits Kane¿s home, presumably to dine and gamble, but secretly to learn what he can about his ruthless business opponent. The rumor that Araminta had become Griffin¿s cook becomes truth when Kane insists his cook make an appearance to accept the crowd¿s compliments. Griffin, who can¿t afford to have her reveal his identity, seeks her out. When he confronts her, Araminta recalls the growing attraction she had for the handsome brother of her best friend when she worked for the Calversons. And although Griffin was also attracted to Araminta, he knows society would frown upon his marriage to a woman of color and develops his own agenda ¿ that of wooing the sultry beauty into becoming his mistress. Araminta, a strong willed, independent woman, will do whatever it takes to help the people she loves. Her desire to aide her helpless friend, Olivia, forces Araminta to seek Griffin¿s help. Despite her growing attraction to Griffin over the course of several meetings, she refuses to become his mistress. She wants marriage, though she too realizes the impossibility of achieving that goal with Griffin. Deceit and danger from Griffin¿s competitor, Kane, quickly ensnares the young couple. When Griffin is attacked by Kane¿s henchmen and recovers at Araminta¿s home, he learns the truth of her parentage, the obstacles she has overcome, and begins to realize how much she means to him, especially when one of Griffin¿s friends, a police detective, proposes marriage to Araminta. Will Araminta and Olivia escape Kane¿s clutches? Will Kane destroy Griffin and his empire? Most important, will Araminta sacrifice her long-standing principles to remain by Griffin¿s side, reach her goal of owning a restaurant, or settle for marriage to a policeman? ¿Somebody to Love¿ is a well-written novel of two people who share a common enemy. The plot is swift-paced, the characters fully-developed with individual challenges and goals that slowly merge to a thrilling ending. Kate Rothwell¿s ¿Somebody to Love¿ is precisely that ¿ a wonderful tale of love, pride and greed.
