Someone to Love
The first book in the Westcott series, Someone to Love features the main character, Anna Snow, as a young girl growing up in an orphanage. She has no idea who her parents are, so she does not know anything about them. However, when the Earl of Riverdale dies, she learns the truth about her past. He was a bigamist, and his second wife had children.
Unlike other earls, Harry Westcott is not related to the family he was born into. While his father was an earl, his mother never married. As a result, he never received the title of earl. After the marriage was found to be unofficial, he went abroad to fight in the Napoleonic Wars. Now, he is back in his hometown, but he feels like he's missing something. He wants to be passionate, like his family.

Someone to Hold
If you've read Mary Balogh's previous novel, Someone to Love, you know that the story is centered around an earl's family and the consequences of discovering he's been living a double life. In the previous book, Camille was a high-stickler, and she settled for nothing less than perfection. However, now that she's grown up, Camille considers herself to be a flawed woman, and she expects perfection when it is no longer possible. This second book, Someone to Hold, looks at the aftermath of the earl's ill-tempered behavior and the ways in which his family and his daughter, Anna, will rebuild their lives after the shocking revelation.
The premise of the book is that a single man can change a family in a heartbeat. But in the case of Camille and Anna, love can't be forced, and the author makes sure that her characters grow as a result. This is one of the main reasons I think Westcott's books never really seem to end. This series is well worth reading. I have already purchased the first two books in the series.
