Throwback Thursday: Somewhere I'll Find You by Lisa Kleypas

Author: Lisa Kleypas
First Published in 1996 by Avon

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.
Somewhere I'll Find You is the first in the Capital Theater series by Lisa Kleypas.  The premise is that Damon and Julia were married when they were children by their parents in exchange for money and a title.  They have never met because Julia fled when she turned 18 and became an actress.  Once they find each other, Damon is determined to make Julia his for real.
This was just an OK read for me.  I think had I not listened to the audio, I would have given up on it.  I wasn't sure I really liked Julia.  While I understood her need for freedom and her love of the theater, I thought she was a bit too unbending about it.  I also got tired of her indecision about Damon.  She claims to want to have nothing to do with him, yet she keeps sleeping with him.  Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for that this time?  I do have the sequel, Because You're Mine on my MP3 player.  Hopefully, it's better.
