Someone to Love by Mary Balogh

His only legitimate daughter, Anna Snow, grew up in an orphanage in Bath. She didn’t know anything about her family. She finds out she is the daughter of the late Earl of Riverdale, heir to his fortune. Also, she finds out that she has three siblings. As expected, they want nothing to do with her. But the new earl’s guardian is interested in Anna…
Avery Archer, Duke of Netherby, is the new earl’s guardian. He gets close to Anna and this is how their love story begins.

I loved the book. It was written in Mary Balogh’s wonderful style. I liked both characters, despite Avery being quite an unusual man. It took me a day to finish the book, it was really hard to put down. So, I would definitely recommend it, if you like a romantic love story that is predictable and still heartwarming.

  • Regency romance fiction is my guilty pleasure. I love reading them, when my guys are at school, and I can treat myself to a binge-readings session, with lots of tea and chocolate too.
