Somewhere I'll Find You

Lisa Kleypas. Avon Books, $7.99 (384pp) ISBN 978-0-380-78143-0

Married as children--he was seven, and she was four--Damon, the Marquess of Savage, and Julia Hargate have gone their separate ways. With Julia's dowry, Damon has become rich and powerful; and Julia, who never wanted Damon's title anyway, has transformed herself into Mrs. Jessica Wentworth, the most celebrated actress of Regency London (all men want her, and all women dream of being her). When the couple finally meet as adults and are clobbered by chemistry, Damon has to get used to loving a woman who won't give up her career, and Julia has to figure out how to integrate babies and greasepaint. The theatrical setting distinguishes Kleypas's sensuous formula romance, the first of a two-parter. (The second will be about brilliant actor-manager Logan Scott, ""whose powerful yet vulnerable Hamlet was legendary."") (Oct.)
