Reminiscent of Susan Andersen's and Rachel Gibson's lively contemporary romances, Karen Kendall's fourth book, 'Someone Like Him', is another sparkling, sexy and fun story about a small town girl and a city slicker who aren't looking for love but find it when a pampered Doberman unleashes their passion.
Lavender "Vinnie" Hart has always placed others before herself. In order to provide her very bright younger brother with a boarding school education, this small town girl moves them to the fast-paced and alien city of New York. Now she only has to figure out how to pay for her rent, buy food, and scrape together enough money for the tuition!
A native New Yorker, Nicholas Wright is an ambitious architect on the partner track in his firm. He has little time and patience for a wife or children and when he inherits Daffodil, a high-maintenance Doberman Pinscher, the obvious solution is to hire Vinnie as a live-in dog nanny.
Vinnie thinks this is the perfect solution to her financial woes - she just has to overcome her bothersome attraction to Nicholas, a sophisticated man who could never be interested in someone like her . . .
