Overview

From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the second in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series.

Abigail Backworth Maldon is no fan of marriage, having buried her late husband after his embarrassing demise (he toppled headfirst out of a bedroom window in an attempt to avoid an angry husband). But that doesn't mean she doesn't see its advantages -- just not for her.

The part she likes best is the idea of marrying off her niece to a suitable husband. To Abigail, "suitable" means the man comes with a pleasant disposition, a title if possible, and most definitely with a fortune he'd naturally share with his bride's family. Because,as chance would have it, the family is dead broke.

Enter Kipp Rutland, he of the recently broken heart (see Waiting For You), beholden to marry before his thirtieth birthday (he promised his mother, as mothers do worry... and nag). One look at Abby's niece tells him he has discovered the perfect wife -- quiet, conventional, probably not too bright. Marry her, bed her, and nine months later hand his ecstatic mother the grandchild she desires. After all, the last thing he's looking for is love.

Nothing can be simpler than Abby's plan and Kipp's plan -- except that nothing is ever that simple. Especially when the matchmaker and the matrimonial target she has sicced her niece on begin to realize opposite motives just might attract.

Funny story and a reader is sure to know someone in an updated version of the characters in this book. Kipp is a very patient man and Abigail is a consummate rescuer.

Lady Abigail Backworth-Maldon¿s negative views on marriage come from her late spouse¿s death while climbing out the window of another woman¿s bedroom. However, Abigail knows that marriage is the only way her in-laws will survive the abject poverty her husband left them all to contend with when he died. Abigail chooses her beautiful, but moronic niece Edwardine to get hitched to a wealthy aristocrat.

Abigail opts for Lord Kipp Rutland to marry her birdbrain niece. Because of a deathbed vow to his now deceased mother, Kipp seeks a wife. A lovely ninny like Edwardine appears to be the ideal baby maker that will fulfill Kipp¿s quest. However, Kipp¿s best friend Brady James knows that his pal¿s brain would melt if he weds an idiot like Edwardine. Instead Brady chooses Abigail as his buddy¿s spouse and sets in motion a plan to insure that this occurs.

SOMEONE TO LOVE is a humorous Regency romance that sub-genre fans will enjoy. The amusing story line is a superb diversion due to the wacky world of the Backworth-Maldon kin who must have been bypassed when brains were distributed and the in your face machinations of Brady. Abigail and Kipp are a wonderful pair, who war with their inner attraction for one another. Kasey Michaels writes a clever tale that historical romance fans will love and seek other works from this fabulous author.
